What Happens When You Receive an Adjustment?


The chiropractic adjustment or correction is a procedure performed by your chiropractor using his/ her hands or a special instrument. The purpose of this procedure is to correct a condition or abnormality that is called a subluxation.

A subluxation is an unhealthy state of your body reflected in your spine, structural system, muscles, and nerves. Some people refer to the subluxation as a blockage, others as interference, others as stagnation of energy. Subluxations may be caused by physical, emotional, and toxic stress. They are very common and are found in every age group. For example, they may be found in newborns due to birth trauma, in children (from falls and accidents), and in fact, in anyone who lives on a planet with gravity (that means all of us).

Because of the many things that can cause a subluxation, the moment your subluxations are corrected (adjusted or released), hundreds, if not thousands, of body functions and activities may be affected.

Backpack Safety Tips

Back pain is pervasive among American adults, however, it is not uncommon among children and teens either. In a new and disturbing trend, young children are suffering from back pain much earlier than previous generations, and the use of overweight backpacks is a contributing factor, according to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA).

“In my own practice, I have noticed a marked increase in the number of young children who are complaining about back, neck and shoulder pain,” said Dr. Scott Bautch, a member of ACA’s Council on Occupational Health. “The first question I ask these patients is, ‘Do you carry a backpack to school?’ Almost always, the answer is ‘yes’.”

This new back pain trend among youngsters isn’t surprising when you consider the disproportionate amounts of weight they carry in their backpacks – often slung over just one shoulder. According to Dr. Bautch, a study conducted in Italy found that the average child carries a backpack that would be the equivalent of a 39-pound burden for a 176-pound man, or a 29- pound load for a 132-pound woman. Of those children carrying heavy backpacks to school, 60 percent had experienced back pain as a result.
