Chiropractic Adjustment in Charleston SC

Chiropractor Charleston SC Greg Grochowski Adjusting Patient

Even if you have never been to a chiropractor in Charleston SC you have probably heard of the term “adjustment” or “manipulation”. Both describe the process that a Chiropractor uses to increase flexibility and range of motion, reducing muscle spasms, nerve inflammation and irritation, pain and discomfort. These gentle adjustments enable the body’s innate ability to heal itself. This can be done with an instrument or done by hand. Either way, the adjustment is pain-free. Our patients say they look forward to it. It is true that in some cases, when the patient is in such severe pain that merely the act of moving or even breathing is painful, the adjustment may be less comfortable the first time. With that said, we do everything we can to give you a great experience.

Getting Adjusted By A Chiropractor in Charleston SC

Some people wonder what the “cracking” or “popping” noise is. In the times that the joints do make that noise, it is gas being released in the joint as it moves. This is the same as cracking knuckles. Whether or not there is a noise has no bearing on the effect of the adjustment.

Having been a Chiropractor for years I understand the fear that a new patient can have. Many patients have come to my office as their last resort when desperation for relief outweighs their fear. In some cases, the desperation is intense! After the first adjustment I always ask if it was as painful or scary as they imagined. In over 25 years, treating 10,000 patients and counting I have never had a patient say that it was. They have always given a sigh of relief and said things like, “That was it?”
