Spinal Manipulation at Wave of Life Chiropractic

We understand that if you’re new to Wave of Life Chiropractic or have never been to a chiropractor before, you might have questions about what we do. Please read through the information below to find out more about our approach to improving your health with gentle, full body health care!

What, exactly, does a chiropractor do?

As a chiropractor, Dr. Carly uses spinal manipulation. Any chiropractic technique utilized for a chiropractic adjustment is the application of spinal manipulation.

What is a spinal manipulation?

It involves making a change within the joints of the spine to move them into the proper position. It can have a significant impact on the body when these areas have been restored.

How is a spinal manipulation performed?

Dr. Carly is experienced in using several different techniques. She will tailor her methods to your condition and what’s most appropriate to your case. For more information go to our Chiropractic Care page.

What conditions can it help?

Some of the issues that can be relieved by spinal manipulation include low back pain, neck pain, and headaches and migraines. When pressure is removed from your joints, it diminishes inflammation and restores nerve function. The body is then able to operate as it should, which can alleviate numerous health concerns.

Is it safe for everyone to receive?

People of all ages can have spinal manipulation. Dr. Carly can safely perform this procedure on pregnant women, babies and children, as well as older adults.

Will you recommend any other services as a part of my care?

Some chiropractors use additional modalities such as ultrasound and electrical muscle stimulation to complement a spinal manipulation, but it cannot act as a replacement. We may work with other health professionals such as physical therapists. Our thorough examination process will determine what works best for your particular case.
