Chiropractic Adjustments and Pain

Posted By Chiropractic Intern Jayson Yaplee

Nociceptors and mechanoreceptors are scattered throughout the human body.  When nociceptors are stimulated it allows for the concious awareness of pain.  Mechanoreceptors are stimulated by movement and have been shown to inhibit the activity of nociceptors, and therefore pain.  The chiropractic adjustment at its most basic level improves the mobility and function of joints.  It allows the body move optimally and reduce pain.  Stay active, see your chiropractor regularly, get adjusted, and live without pain.

    Chiropractic care is effective for a wide variety of conditions. Just like with a house, foundation problems can cause other issues that don’t seem related. These foundation corrections should be basic maintenance to keep people healthy. My patients are often surprised to see other issues that were seemingly unrelated improve or even disappear from getting their spine aligned correctly.
