Is Chiropractic Right for You?
Our team of Chiropractors specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders that may be causing pain and discomfort. Chiropractic treatment is used to reduce pain in joints that aren’t functioning properly.
The adjustments our doctors make are often accompanied by an audible release of gas called joint cavitation.
The audible sound — or cavitation — is caused by the release of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide, which releases joint pressure and decreases muscle spasm. This is not a required component to achieving relief, often the same release occurs without an audible sound. Most of our patients feel relief after just a few treatments.
Some patients, however, experience minor discomfort that usually lasts for only a short time if the surrounding muscles are in spasm or when you tense up during the chiropractic procedure.
