Spinal Manipulation Can Help Relieve Chronic Aches & Pains
Do your joints hurt? Is your back causing you trouble? Has your pain become unbearable? Spinal manipulation is a great form of pain management. If you’re dealing with those kinds of issues, you may benefit from it at Synergy Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine in Jacksonville, NC!
Your spine does a lot for your body – it protects your spinal cord, allows you to breathe properly, and it is what allows your body to move.
In fact, almost every function in your body is directly connected to the health of your spine.
Spinal manipulation is a gentle, hands-on form of manual therapy that focuses on evaluating and enhancing spinal function. It can help relieve pressure on joints, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function.
Therefore, even pain that may seem unrelated to spinal function could be effectively relieved through spinal manipulation treatments.

The importance of spinal manipulation treatment
It takes a delicate balance to make sure your spine is operating at its peak level of health and function. Your spine is a complicated structure of vertebrae, discs, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves!
This is why spinal manipulation is such an important form of treatment. If you are living with pain, you know how limiting it can be.
In order to make sure your spine is at its optimum health, you must achieve the following:
- Strong abdominal and core muscles
- Good posture and spinal curves
- Good flexibility and balance with side-bending and rotation
- Strong spinal and gluteus muscles

Statistics on spinal manipulation
Spinal manipulation is a treatment method that has been known to relieve a large variety of painful conditions.
In fact, a study published by the International Journal of Sports Physical Therapy supports spinal manipulation as an effective mode of treatment.
The study, titled “Effectiveness of Physical Therapist Administered Spinal Manipulation for the Treatment of Low Back Pain: A Systematic Review of the Literature” analyzed data from several reputable medical journals to determine the effectiveness of spinal manipulation on patients living with lower back pain.
Six randomized control trials were included for review and thoroughly assessed by the researchers. Results were overwhelmingly positive for the success of spinal manipulation. The conclusion is as follows:
“Based on the findings of this systematic review there is evidence to support the use of spinal manipulation by physical therapists in clinical practice. Physical therapy spinal manipulation appears to be a safe intervention that improves clinical outcomes for patients with low back pain.”
