At Bartkus Chiropractic Center, our health team desires to provide an effective, non-invasive, gentle and drug-free approach to your health. One of the essential services Dr. Charles Bartkus uses is a chiropractic adjustment.

Adjustments provide the basis for your care program and are a natural way to eliminate back pain, neck pain, joint pain and pain from conditions such as fibromyalgia and arthritis.

What Are Chiropractic Adjustments?

When Dr. Bartkus performs a chiropractic adjustment, which is also known as a manipulation, he manually positions the vertebrae of the spine and the bones of joints (ankles, hips, elbows, etc.) by applying pressure and force to the areas. These adjustments are gentle, and the vertebrae and bones slide into their healthier position, which decreases pain and restores mobility. Chiropractic adjustments also support healthier healing by assuring that the muscles, bones, and connective tissues are in the correct positions. This positioning is important to avoid future and lasting challenges, such as head-turning, arm lifting, and back-bending limitations.

Chiropractic Care & Adjustments

When you consider seeing a chiropractor for your health needs, you may think of us only for back and neck pain. While Dr. Bartkus does concentrate on spinal alignment to support a healthy body, chiropractic adjustments and manipulations are also effective on joint pain and immobility. If you have a frozen shoulder, Dr. Bartkus positions the shoulder joint so that it begins to restore itself in a healthy way. This means that adjustments help to improve circulation to and from the shoulder, eliminate pressure off any compressed nerves, and recover muscular balance so the shoulder heals in proper alignment.

Adjustments work the same way in other areas including the spine. A gentle chiropractic manipulation of the vertebrae takes pressure off discs between the vertebrae and allows for improved nerve signal flow. This encourages the body to heal on its own and instead of simply masking the symptoms with pain relievers, our chiropractor heals the cause of the symptoms which decreases side effects and prevents lasting challenges.

Dr. Bartkus wants to ease your mind regarding chiropractic adjustments. Although sometimes the movements make a popping noise, they are not painful. Instead, you begin to feel an immediate reduction in pain as compressed nerves are freed and circulation is restored. Your body needs a little nudge at times to use its natural healing abilities. Chiropractic adjustments nudge the bones into place so the body recovers quickly and you feel less pain.
