Spinal Manipulation Therapy

Spinal Manipulation Therapy is often used to treat back, neck, shoulder, and headache pain. All of our doctors have certification in Spinal Manipulative Therapy with a focus on High-Velocity Low Amplitude Thrust (HVLA). The aim of HVLA thrust techniques is to achieve joint cavitation that is accompanied by a ‘popping’ or ‘cracking’ sound due to a drop in the internal pressure of the joint being manipulated which leads to immediate improvements in range of motion.

A systematic review of research studies comparing complementary therapies for non-specific back pain concluded that spinal manipulation has significant benefits for acute and chronic low back pain and that the risks of lumbar manipulation are very low.

Spinal Manipulation Benefits

  1. Pain Relief: Spinal manipulation physical therapy can help reduce pain and discomfort in the neck, back, and other areas of the body by restoring proper joint and muscle function.
  2. Improved Range of Motion: By improving joint mobility and reducing muscle tension, spinal manipulation physical therapy can help improve range of motion and flexibility.
  3. Reduced Inflammation: Spinal manipulation physical therapy may help reduce inflammation in the body, which can contribute to pain and other health problems.
  4. Improved Posture: Poor posture can contribute to a range of health problems, including back pain and headaches. Spinal manipulation physical therapy can help improve posture by restoring proper alignment of the spine.
  5. Enhanced Overall Wellness: Spinal manipulation physical therapy can help improve overall wellness by promoting proper circulation, reducing stress, and enhancing the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
