Mechanicsville Spine Adjustment

Mechanicsville, Virginia — My name is Dr. Tripp Stover. You may have heard the terms “spinal adjustment” and “spinal manipulation” used interchangeably when describing Mechanicsville chiropractors. Both terms refer to a process through which the spine is realigned or readjusted in an effort to improve overall health and wellness.

Most chiropractors prefer the use of the term “spinal adjustment” as it seems to better describe the correct chiropractic process.  The objective for a chiropractor is to be very specific when giving an adjustment.  A manipulation would imply a non-specific procedure intending to mobilize a joint.  Sometimes this is a great help, but when a person has a subluxation which is interfering with nerve function, they need a specific procedure.  This is what chiropractic has to offer over the gross manipulations that physical therapists, medical doctors, or osteopaths are trained to do.  The result of an adjustment is better mobility, less pain, AND a healthier nervous system.

Lower back pain for people in Mechanicsville is sometimes the result of vertebrae in the spine moving out of their normal position in relation to the overall structure of the back.

The back is a complex system of ligaments, joints, tissues, muscles, and other vertebrae. All must be working in harmony for things to feel good, and a spinal adjustment may be what you need.

A regular spinal adjustment to your spine can help move any misaligned components back into position, and may improve lower back pain, neck pain, fibromyalgia, sciatic, and even headaches.

Spine adjustments are applied gently by a trained and licensed chiropractor. I am a trained and licensed chiropractor working in Mechanicsville at Stover Chiropractic, P.C..
