What Are Chiropractic Adjustments?
Mayo Clinic explains that chiropractic adjustments are the application of “controlled” force on a spinal joint. It also notes that licensed, trained professionals can administer the adjustment safely.
The process of a chiropractic adjustment can involve:
- A meeting with our team—we ask basic questions about your health history, answer any questions you have, and explain the process ahead.
- A routine physical examination
- The completion of the adjustment
Our physicians will give you full information about your chiropractic adjustment before the procedure.
Who Can Benefit from Chiropractic Adjustments?
Harvard Health notes that spinal manipulation can help those with lower back pain. You may also see relief from a chiropractic adjustment if you have:
- A spinal injury
- A back injury
- A herniated disc
- A muscle sprain
- A muscle strain
- A neck injury
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
Spinal manipulations—another name for spinal adjustments—may help other conditions. Our team will discuss your symptoms. We can explain whether a spinal adjustment is right for you.
What Symptoms Do We Treat With Chiropractic Adjustments?
You may benefit from a spinal adjustment if you have:
- Headaches or migraines
- Acute back pain
- Chronic back pain
- Neck pain
- Nerve pain
- Poor posture-related to pain or conditions like scoliosis
The physicians at Specific Care Chiropractic will do our best to treat your symptoms with a chiropractic adjustment or physiotherapy treatment, or both. The goal is to have you feeling better when you leave our office.
What Are the Possible Outcomes of a Chiropractic Adjustment?
The target outcome of a chiropractic adjustment varies between patients. Some patients may seek a reduction in pain, while others may desire greater mobility in their backs, necks, and extremities. Many patients seek relief from both issues.
Another target outcome for alignment may include the reduction or elimination of headaches and migraines.
Pain can have serious secondary effects—inactivity, reliance on opioids, and poor mental health being a few. By treating your symptoms in a non-invasive way, you may see an improvement in your overall quality of life.

Specific Adjustment Techniques that Specific Care Chiropractic Offers
Physicians at Specific Care Chiropractic know several chiropractic adjustment techniques. We tailor our techniques to each client’s specific needs. We offer:
Side Posture Adjustments
Also known as lumbar side posture adjustments, we apply pressure to your lower side or pelvic area. This adjustment may help those with lower back pain.
Diversified adjustments: Diversified adjustments involve the forceful alignment of your spine. Patients often hear a popping sound and may experience immediate relief from a diversified adjustment.
Sacral-Occipital Technique (SOT)
The SOT technique addresses both the spinal cord and nervous system, addressing any problems that arise from their junction. This technique dates back to the early 20th century and is one of our many techniques for treating pain.
Seated Diversified Technique
This technique involves the same approach as the diversified adjustment, only from a seated position.
The knee-chest technique centers upon cervical manipulation. A physician will manipulate your head and neck as you maintain a kneeling position.
The activator technique mimics the diversified adjustment approach. Rather than using their hands, though, a physician uses a handheld instrument to complete the adjustment.
Toggle Recoil Technique
The toggle recoil approach involves the gentler manipulation of your affected body parts.
Manual Extremities Technique
With this technique, one of our physicians will manipulate your arms, legs, and other extremities at the joints. This may be helpful for those with joint pain, including but not limited to carpal tunnel syndrome.
Our physicians base their approach upon your specific injuries and symptoms. The severity of your symptoms and your personal health history are also relevant.
Alternate Treatments that We Offer to Clients in Lehigh Acres
While chiropractic adjustments may be just what you need, other treatments may be beneficial, too. Specific Care Chiropractic also offers physiotherapy, including:
- Massage therapy
- Rehabilitative therapy
