Research shows that up to 80 percent of Americans could suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. While back pain itself is annoying, it can also cause other symptoms, including impaired limb function, trouble sleeping, and fatigue, among others. Spinal adjustments can align the spine while relieving built-up pressure. This helps oxygen-rich fluid flow through the body, which provides relief from joint pain, stiffness, and nerve dysfunction. The chiropractors at Austin Preferred Integrative have helped many patients find relief from back pain using these modalities, which makes us a popular option for spinal adjustments in Austin.
There are many different techniques used for Chiropractic adjustments. However, these generally fall into two categories: Spinal Manipulation, which involves a moderate amount of force, and Spinal Mobilization, which is more gentle. The chiropractors at Austin Preferred mainly use techniques including the Standard Manipulation, Flexion-Distraction, and the Activator Method for adjustments. Standard Manipulation relieves pressure in the joints through mobilization. Flexion-Distraction applies small amounts of pressure in targeted areas, which helps herniated discs slip back into place. The Activator Method applies gentle pressure followed by a quick thrust with a specialized instrument that corrects misalignment in the spine.
Utilizing multiple techniques allows our providers to choose the most effective options for each patient’s specific condition, which resonates with our personalized healthcare approach. Furthermore, these modalities can help relieve neck and back pain related to a number of medical conditions, including:
Because of Dr. Jeff Fluitt’s track record of achieving positive outcomes with a variety of conditions, Austin Preferred is a popular option for spinal adjustments in Austin. To enhance the effects of adjustments, our providers sometimes combine them with other Chiropractic, Manual Therapy, and Physical Therapy techniques. However, many people find significant relief from regular adjustments alone.
Although health insurance carriers and Medicare both cover adjustments, we also offer them at the self-pay rate.
