Spinal Adjustments in Austin

Spinal Adjustments

Research reveals that up to 80 percent of Americans could suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. Spinal Adjustments can align the spine while relieving built-up pressure. This enhances joint and nerve function while helping to relieve back pain and soreness. 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.

Spinal Adjustments in Austin

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.  

Utilizing multiple techniques allows our providers to choose the most effective options for each patient’s specific condition. Furthermore, these modalities can help relieve neck and back pain related to a number of medical conditions, commonly including:
