Recently, they have become well-known as an effective way to help alleviate pain and discomfort caused by various conditions affecting the joints.

At Active Chiropractic Therapy in Temple Hills, MD, we provide expert care for all our patients so they can recover with less reliance on medication and won’t keep suffering from the same underlying problems.

Chiropractic Adjustments for Pain and Injury

Many patients see Dr. Chung for spinal adjustments to relieve back pain. Various factors, including poor posture, stress, and injury, can cause dysfunction in the spinal column. Chiropractic adjustments are the controlled use of force to place a joint back in its proper position. They can help realign the vertebrae, reducing pressure on the nerve roots and muscles. In turn, this relieves problems along the length of the nerves and muscles, such as tingling or tightness.

Whiplash often occurs in car accidents, sports accidents, or other types of trauma where the neck incurs microtears due to rapidly accelerating and decelerating. Spinal adjustments can be very effective in treating it, as they can help to realign the vertebrae in the neck, reducing inflammation and better supporting the head.
