Chiropractic Adjustments

At First Choice Integrated Health Care in Knoxville, TN, we offer chiropractic adjustments to alleviate the discomfort that you may be experiencing and improve your mobility. You can learn more about the benefits of chiropractic adjustments below:


Understanding Chiropractic Adjustments

We use spinal adjustments to realign the spine into its proper position. The discs and vertebrae can sometimes shift us of place due to injury, poor posture, or obesity. As a result, you may experience pain, numbness, and tingling. During the adjustment, our practitioner can also improve blood flow, which can help with healing. An appointment typically takes 30 minutes, which includes completing your medical history report.

Conditions Treated with a Spinal Adjustment

Our chiropractor will usually recommend a spinal adjustment for back pain and neck pain. We may suggest this treatment if degenerative disc disease, which occurs when the discs in your back wear out or become dry. We may also recommend an adjustment for a herniated disc, bulging disc, or nerve pain from a bone spur. While we can utilize this chiropractic treatment to help with other common causes of back pain, we can also use it if you have generalized back pain. 

Chiropractic adjustments are also beneficial if you have neck pain. You may have discomfort in your neck due to whiplash, which occurs when your head is forcefully moved forward and backward suddenly and causes strain to the tissues in the neck. Our chiropractor may also utilize adjustments if you have headaches and migraines. The treatments can improve circulation and eliminate the stress in the back of your head and your upper back. As a result, your nervous system will function properly and you will feel less pain.

Your Safety and Possible Side Effects

Chiropractic adjustments are safe for most people and can help sufficiently eliminate back pain or neck pain. As an extra precaution, our chiropractor will perform a thorough evaluation and review your medical history to ensure your safety. Any side effects from an adjustment tend to be mild and temporary. Some side effects your may encounter include: 

  • Headaches
  • Fatigue 
  • Soreness
