Raleigh Chiropractic Adjustments

Chronic issues such as sinus problems, back and neck pain, and headaches are just a few of the issues commonly relieved by chiropractic care. There are specific concepts behind chiropractic procedures, including the belief that the human body is – to some extent – inherently capable of healing itself. The body’s nerves, muscles, bones, and joints are all interconnected and work harmoniously together to complete the healing process. Chiropractic treatment involves different types of adjustments that help keep the body healthy.

Chiropractic adjustments are procedures involving the use of the practitioner’s hands and other small tools to improve alignment within the body. There are multiple techniques chiropractors apply based on the complaints and conditions of each patient. These include:


This means of adjustment entails careful but sudden force to spinal joints. This procedure is commonly identified by its “popping” sound.


The mobilization of joints involves a series of slow stretches. Patients undergoing mobilization generally do not experience relief as quickly as those treated with spinal manipulation, and may, therefore, require more visits.

Drop table adjusting.

A chiropractic adjusting table allows for individual portions of it to be lifted. When force is applied to a patient’s body, the lifted portion of the table drops back into place. This allows momentum to assist with the maneuver.

Instrument assisted adjusting.

Chiropractic tools can be used when working with patients who are either in extreme pain or find the traditional means of adjusting too uncomfortable. Some instruments are designed with different levels of intensity to release impulses onto the troubled area of the body.

Aside from chiropractic adjustments, we provide a range of other services. Our specialties include spinal decompression and issues relative to neuropathy, pregnancy, nutrition, stress management, corrective care, and orthotics. We even offer pediatric care, making our facility a family-friendly environment.

Poor posture, stress, and poor sleeping habits can also contribute to overall body pain and discomfort. There is also some evidence that chiropractic treatment can relieve behavioral problems. If your quality of life has suffered, our team at Raleigh Specific Chiropractic can help. The professional staff is knowledgeable, experienced, and fully licensed.

Chiropractic care is about much more than symptom relief.

Chiropractors provide their patients with vital, preventative, and non-invasive health care through regular checks and adjustments. At the center of that specialized and trained care is an expert understanding of the science of vertebral subluxation.
A vertebral subluxation occurs when one or more vertebrae in the spine become misaligned, compressing spinal nerves and disturbing optimal nerve function. Chiropractic’s primary focus involves locating, analyzing and correcting these misalignments.

Vertebral Subluxation in the History of Chiropractic

The term “subluxation” has a long history in the healing practices, dating back to the time of Hippocrates, the ancient Greek physician regarded as the “Father of Medicine.” The word refers to a dislocation or displacement and has been integral to chiropractic education since the very beginning. Chiropractic’s founder, D.D. Palmer, reasoned that even a slight misaligned vertebra could cause pressure on the spinal cord or nerves.

Chiropractors use adjustments to restore joint function and support the nervous system.
They help patients maintain optimal health while avoiding unnecessary drugs or surgery.

“Chiropractors have found in every disease that is supposed to be contagious, a cause in the spine,” wrote B.J. Palmer, the famous developer of chiropractic, in 1909. “In the spinal column, we will find a subluxation that corresponds to every type of disease.”
As chiropractic science is concerned with preserving and restoring health, it focuses particular attention on subluxations of the tiny bones of the spine. A vertebral subluxation happens when one or more of bones of the spine are out of position and compress spinal nerves. These nerves are the primary communication link between the body to the brain. Pressure on these nerves interferes with the communication between the body and the brain, which may cause organs, tissues, and cells not to function properly. Chiropractic identifies, analyzes and helps correct these disturbances to restore the body’s natural balance and the potential for self-healing.

How a Subluxation Interferes with Optimal Health

A subluxation interrupts the proper operation of the body’s nerve system, compromising the maintenance of optimal health. The human body consists of several interrelated systems, functioning with an innate intelligence to adapt to changes in our internal environment and the world around us. Every moment, impulses are delivered between the brain and the body’s 100 trillion cells to coordinate every movement and function. Impulses send this intricate information through the nerve connections in our spine. When vertebrae become subluxated because of any number of factors, interference results in the body’s communication process, negatively affecting functions and performance.
