If you have pain related to your spine, a drop table adjustment may help. With this therapy, your chiropractor gently moves sections of your spine using a special table. It has sections that can lift up and down slightly. The chiropractor provides a sudden thrust to a patient’s spinal or pelvic area. As the doctor makes the thrust, the area of the patient’s body being worked on is simultaneously dropped by the table. This technique allows for thorough and less discomforting spinal manipulations. Here are the benefits you can expect from chiropractic adjustment:

Reduced stress
Stress is an inevitable fact of life. Chiropractic adjustments are one way to help your body deal with the repercussions of work, family, and social stress. Similar to other mind-body therapies, such as meditation, yoga, and massage, chiropractic soothes your system.

Enhanced athletic performance
Not only does chiropractic care address aches and pains acquired through hours of training and competition, but it also enhances athletic functionality. Chiropractic adjustments can reduce inflammation, boost your immune system, reduce mental stress, enhance pulmonary function, relieve tight muscles, and increase energy levels. Additionally, when your joints are in alignment, you’re less likely to suffer injury when you step wrong or twist suddenly. This means less time on the bench and faster recovery should you suffer an injury.

Better digestion
When your body is aligned, all your systems work better, including digestion. Common digestive problems, such as constipation and irritable bowel syndrome, can be linked to inflammation and high stress. A poor diet and sedentary lifestyle compound the problems. At DMC Healthcare, a combination of spinal manipulation, soft tissue therapy, exercise recommendations, and dietary guidance — all without the use of drugs — can improve your digestive health.

Better posture
Good posture makes you look confident and improves your physique. Sitting all day, squinting at a computer, and folding over cell phones fosters a hunched-forward posture. Carrying your head just 2-3 inches forward puts an extra 20-30 pounds of pressure on the cervical joints. Chiropractic adjustments offer realignment of this posture, so it becomes comfortable and habitual to sit or stand with good, balanced posture every day.
