Can Low Force Chiropractic Care Help Relieve my Chronic Back and Neck Pain? - Exploring a More Gentle Approach to Chiropractic Adjustments

Many people may sing the praises of a good chiropractor, but there are some people who remain a bit wary of the complementary health treatment because of their fear of the unknown. Having an adjustment done for the first time can be intimidating if you don’t know what to expect. For those who are reluctant to have their spine, back or neck manipulated, believing that it will be a painful experience, here are a few facts about a chiropractic technique that focuses on a more gentle type of manipulation than the traditional chiropractic approach.

What are Low Force Chiropractic Adjustments?

There are many different chiropractic techniques that meet the needs of a wide range of physical, neurological and emotional conditions. Most techniques employ varying degrees of force during physical manipulations. With low force chiropractic, the chiropractor applies soft pressure during manipulations and the focus is on allowing the body to ease into the chiropractic experience lightly, with as little discomfort and alignment disruption as possible. Some conditions to which the low force chiropractic technique lends itself well are arthritis, deformity, post-traumatic stress disorders and obesity.

Who Should Have Low Force Chiropractic Adjustments?

People with any variation on the above-mentioned conditions are typically the perfect candidates for low force chiropractic treatments. Additionally, there are two other groups for which this technique works particularly well: children and the elderly.

In the case of older patients, they tend to be a bit wary of change and don’t necessarily adapt as easily as others to new forms of wellness treatments. Gentle, low force chiropractic helps them to relax and assuages their trepidations, which in turn, leads to a better overall experience and result.

Another population segment that is well-suited to low-force chiropractic work is people who have sensitive nervous systems. In this case, a gentler touch keeps these patients from experiencing reactive muscle spasms during treatments.

What are the Benefits of this Technique?

A study conducted by the Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, Missouri, revealed that a control group of patients experienced a consistent reduction in surface electromagnetic fields (EMFs). EMFs have been linked to a huge variety of harmful conditions and diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
