The most common therapeutic procedure we perform at Banic Chiropractic is known as “spinal manipulation,” also called a “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose of your adjustment is to restore your joint mobility and spinal position by using our hands or an instrument to apply a controlled force into the joints. This releases joints that have become restricted in their movement as a result of a tissue injury and reduces the accompanying pain and inflammation. With 13 years of hands-on experience, Dr. Banic is skilled in many types of chiropractic adjusting that can rapidly relieve you from the crisis of pain.
Chiropractic spinal manipulation, as performed by the doctors at Banic Chiropractic, is a safe and effective back and neck pain treatment. It can reduce pain, decreases medication, and advances other therapies. In fact, after an extensive study of all currently available care for low back problems, the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research—a federal government research organization—recommended that low back pain sufferers choose the most conservative care first. And it recommended spinal manipulation as the safe and effective, drugless form of professional treatment for acute low back problems in adults.
