Spinal Rehab Q & A

What is spinal rehab?

Spinal rehabilitation is designed to help relieve various types of pain, including in your neck and back. The natural, noninvasive therapy also works to improve muscle movement and increase your mobility and strength.

Why would I need spinal rehab?

Accidents, injuries, and certain activities can lead to nerve interference. Nerve interference, which is also known as vertebral subluxation, is a condition brought on by a restriction in the movement of your spinal joints. This restriction can irritate or choke nearby nerves. 

In such cases, the team at Valley Spinal Care Kierland recommends spinal rehab through chiropractic adjustments. By releasing the stuck joints, adjustments aim to minimize the irritation and pinching of your nerves, giving you the best opportunity to regain optimal functioning and movement.

Adjustment is the most common chiropractic treatment. The technique often can help patients almost instantly, although results vary.

How do I know if spinal rehab is right for me?

At your initial visit, your practitioner at Valley Spinal Care Kierland asks questions about your symptoms and health history. You may not be an appropriate candidate for spinal rehab if you have:

  • Severe osteoporosis
  • Spinal cancer
  • Tingling, numbness, or loss of strength in your arm or leg
  • A higher risk of stroke

Your practitioner then performs a physical exam, paying particular attention to your spine. They may also recommend other examinations or tests, such as X-rays, to hone in on the source of the misalignment.

What is spinal rehab with the Gonstead technique?

The team at Valley Spinal Care Kierland has been trained on the Gonstead technique, a type of chiropractic adjustment. The central idea behind a Gonstead adjustment is to be as specific, precise, and accurate as possible, addressing only your areas of misalignment. 

Your practitioner first places your body in a biomechanically correct position. They then use their hands to make a precise thrust to provide the most accurate and painless adjustment possible. The goal of the technique is isolating and correcting nerve interference due to spinal misalignment.
