Is It A Good Idea To Self Manipulate Our Joints?
When we attempt to self manipulate our spinal joints, we often affect the joints above and below the problematic area? These areas are often compensatory “hyper-mobile” meaning they are already lax. Doing so may lead to increased joint laxity at these points, promoting further issues. Chiropractic adjustments are designed to specifically and effectively target the problematic joint restoring normal healthy movement throughout the spine.
Even our qualified Chiropractors at Falcon Chiropractic get their colleagues to assess their spine and adjust it appropriately, as they know how detrimental self-manipulation can be.
If this is a habit you have picked up, it may be worth getting your spine checked by a trained professional to find out what underlying issue may be causing this urge.
