Spinal Adjustments in Austin

Spinal Adjustments

Research shows that up to 80 percent of Americans could suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. While back pain is bothersome in itself, it can also cause other symptoms, including impaired function in the limbs, trouble sleeping, and fatigue, among others. Spinal Adjustments can align the spine while relieving built-up pressure. This enhances joint and nerve function while helping oxygen-rich fluid to flow through the region. This provides immense relief from pain, stiffness and nerve dysfunction. The providers at Austin Preferred Integrative have helped many patients find relief from back pain using these modalities, making us a popular option for Spinal Adjustments in Austin. 

There are dozens of different adjustment techniques used by various Chiropractic practices. However, these generally fall into two categories: Spinal Manipulation, which involves a moderate amount of force, and Spinal Mobilization, which is more gentle.

Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine uses multiple techniques for Spinal Adjustments, including Standard Manipulation, Flexion-Distraction, and the Activator Method.

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 which corrects misalignment in the spine.
