What is Supine Close (2)Chiropractic Treatment?

Chiropractic treatment is based on the concept that restricted movement in the spine or other joints in the body may lead to pain and reduced function.

Spinal adjustment (manipulation) is one form of therapy chiropractors use to treat restricted mobility. The goal is to restore proper joint motion and, as a result, improve function and decrease pain.

It is critical that the messages from the brain travel down the spinal cord, through the spinal openings, and reach the body systems without interference.

Chiropractors Restore Function by Gently Adjusting the Spine

Methods vary from light touch to machine controlled contact. The intention of the adjustment is to remove interference from the nervous system. When normal function is restored, the body can work at an optimal level and can handle stress effectively.

It’s actually quite simple, in about 90 percent of all low back pain cases, a nerve that travels from the spinal cord through the vertebrae (bones of the spine) gets pinched or irritated, the muscles tense up and the patient experiences low back pain. The solution depends on why the nerve is irritated in the first place.
