Chiropractic Adjustments in North Pittsburgh areaAt Results Family Chiropractic, we focus on a wellness plan that centers around regular & consistent chiropractic adjustments to help decrease pain and improve function. A chiropractic adjustment, also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation, is a common therapeutic treatment for back pain. Chiropractors will use their hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint, or provide other joint and soft-tissue manipulation, that helps normalize spinal function. The adjustment is applied to a joint that is fixated, “locked up”, or not moving properly. Adjustments help return the bones in your spine to a more normal position, restoring body’s natural healing.

If you frequently deal with symptoms like joint pain, backaches or headaches, but are yet to ever visit a chiropractor for help, then you may be missing out on an effective and natural treatment option. One of the main reasons our patients opt for chiropractic adjustments is because it is a drug-free, effective path to healing the body naturally.

With regular spinal adjustments, patients can see improvement in a range of symptoms, including:

  • Back Pain
  • Headaches
  • Organ Function
  • Asthma
  • Scoliosis
  • Arthritis
  • Ear Infections
  • Bowel Regularity
  • Joint Pain
  • Blood Pressure
  • Neck Pain

Chiropractic adjustments work by helping to place your body in the proper position that then allows the body to heal itself.

Despite the popularity of chiropractic care, there are still a lot of misconceptions that surface from time to time. Educational and licensing requirements for doctors of chiropractic (DCs) are among the most stringent of any of the health care professions. The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) states “DCs are educated in nationally accredited, four-year doctoral graduate school programs through a curriculum that includes a minimum of 4,200 hours of classroom, laboratory and clinical internship,  with the average DC program equivalent in classroom hours to allopathic (MD) and osteopathic (DO) medical schools. “
