“They explained to me everything about my accident and what they were going to do – point by point what was going on with my body, and said they would do everything they can for me to feel back to normal.”
When considering your first trip to a chiropractor, you may wonder about the various techniques they may use. Two of the most common techniques include spinal manipulation and spinal mobilization. What are the differences between the two? Is one better than the other?
Here’s what you need to know about these two techniques.
Spinal manipulation is a technique where a chiropractor uses their hands or a device to apply a controlled thrust to a joint in your spine. It’s relatively safe, with the most common side effects being temporary muscle stiffness or soreness.
Spinal mobilization involves using slow movement, usually to a firm endpoint of joint movement, to mobilize the joint. While spinal mobilization can achieve similar results to spinal manipulation, it doesn’t involve the same type of “back cracking” as and may be a better choice for certain people.
Both spinal manipulation and spinal mobilization are good for neck and back pain. However, there are circumstances and patients for whom spinal mobilization is the better option:
People with sensitive nervous systems
Those with advanced osteoporosis, certain types of inflammatory arthritis, bone pathology, and some types of deformity
Patients in the acute stage of their condition and in severe pain
People whose obesity makes it difficult to get them into the correct positions for spinal manipulation
For pain that affects your joints, bones, muscles, connective tissue, and cartilage, spinal manipulation and other types of chiropractic care can provide numerous benefits. Some benefits you may experience include:
Reduced reliance on opioid pain medications
Improved neck or back pain
High levels of satisfaction with treatment
More affordable than some other treatment types
Relief from some types of headaches
Potential reduction of osteoarthritis symptoms
Reduced symptoms of scoliosis
Whether you prefer spinal manipulation or mobilization, County Line Chiropractic Medical & Rehab Center may be able to help improve your back pain, neck pain, or headaches.
