Spinal Correction Q&A

What is spinal correction?

Spinal correction is a treatment technique that uses the hands or a handheld device to apply pressure to one or several joints in your spine. The amount of pressure varies, but the goal is always the same –– to improve musculoskeletal alignment, relieve pain, and encourage mobility.

Spinal correction is one of the most common types of alternative medicine. It’s entirely noninvasive, requires no downtime, and is safe for people of all ages.

What conditions can spinal correction treat?

At Today’s Chiropractic Clinic, Dr. Laycock uses spinal correction to treat various conditions, including:

  • Sciatica
  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Auto and work injuries
  • Headaches
  • Sports injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Arthritis

You might also benefit from spinal correction if you have insomnia or you experience feelings of stress or anxiety that interfere with your ability to get a good night’s sleep. 

What does spinal correction involve?

At Today’s Chiropractic Clinic, Dr. Laycock performs spinal correction on an outpatient basis. Each visit takes 30-45 minutes and requires no downtime or recovery period.

During spinal correction, you lie face down on a chiropractic table. Once you’re comfortable, Dr. Laycock uses his hands or a specialized tool to apply controlled, specific force to one or more of your vertebrae. It’s normal to hear popping or cracking during the spinal correction, and these sounds are nothing to worry about. 

Is spinal correction safe?

Spinal correction is safe and usually well-tolerated. Following your first appointment, it’s normal to experience some mild sensitivity or muscle soreness, but these symptoms should subside within a day or two. 

Spinal correction is a cumulative treatment. As a result, you may need to participate in several appointments before you experience relief from your symptoms. Follow Dr. Laycock’s instructions and attend each appointment as prescribed.

Is spinal correction covered by medical insurance?

Most types of chiropractic care, including spinal correction, are covered by medical insurance. If you have questions about what your policy does or doesn’t cover, contact your insurance provider before booking an appointment at Today’s Chiropractic Clinic.
