SPINAL ADJUSTMENTS AND MANIPULATION THERAPY
Spinal adjustments allow the body to get back to its ideal alignment in order to heal itself. Once the nerve is no longer compressed, the pain and other discomfort start to diminish. It may take several sessions over the course of several weeks or months for the spine to revert back into its best position. During this time, it may also be beneficial to perform certain exercises to help strengthen the core muscles to improve alignment.
This type of remedy can help some, but not all, causes of sciatica. This painful disorder often occurs due to misalignment of the vertebrae, which can be fixed through adjustments. However, it may also develop due to muscular problems, diabetes, constipation and other disorders. Although spinal manipulation may still provide some relief and improved flexibility, there are times where it may not be advised.
