Issues related to the spine are often why people see a chiropractor.

We provide chiropractic adjustments at Coast Family Chiropractic in Costa Mesa, CA. Dr. Escobedo is experienced in performing these adjustments safely and effectively. We will tailor the treatment plan to your specific needs, providing the best possible care.
What are Chiropractic Adjustments?
Chiropractic adjustments are also called spinal manipulations. They are a hands-on treatment that uses controlled force to adjust the joints of the spine. This is done to restore alignment and improve range of motion. Adjustments are generally safe and effective and they can provide relief for a variety of conditions.
How Do Chiropractic Adjustments Work?
When you visit a chiropractor, the first step is conducting a thorough exam. This allows the chiropractor to develop a treatment plan that is specific to your needs. Once the plan is in place, the adjustments can begin.
What Conditions Can Be Treated with Chiropractic Adjustments?
Chiropractors can use these adjustments to treat a wide range of conditions. Some of the most common include:
- Back pain: Adjustments can help relieve pain in the lower back, mid back, and upper back.
- Neck pain: People suffering from neck pain can find relief with chiropractic adjustments. When performed correctly, these adjustments can improve range of motion and reduce pain.
- Headaches: Headaches are often caused by muscle tension or a misalignment in the spine. Adjustments can help relieve this tension and improve headache symptoms.
- Sciatica: This is a condition that causes pain in the lower back and legs. It can be caused by a herniated disc or spinal stenosis (a narrowing of the spine). Getting adjusted can help relieve the pain associated with sciatica.
- Sports and personal injuries: Adjustments can help heal injuries by reducing inflammation and restoring range of motion.
These are not the only conditions that can be helped by chiropractic adjustments. If you have questions about whether this treatment is right for you, visit our chiropractor. Generally, any issues affecting the musculoskeletal system are good candidates for chiropractic care.
