The backbone is a series of small bones that form a vertical column from the atlas, which supports the head, to the coccyx at the base of the spine. A few are fused. Most are separated by intervertebral discs. These small discs act as shock absorbers keeping them from rubbing together. Your Midlothian chiropractor may have a chart depicting the spinal column. There may also be a plastic model to see.

The spinal cord, which contains all the nerve roots, runs through the hollow vertebrae. These small bones protect it. The spinal cord holds the roots to the many nerves that activate the body.

There are situations, a car accident for example, that may cause a subluxation of the spine. When the vertebrae are not in the correct position, they may cause pressure against a nerve, causing it to hurt. A slipped disc is also known as a herniation.

To correct this misalignment, your chiropractor applies spinal adjustments to relieve the pressure. Each adjustment moves the vertebrae back towards their correct position. Lifting the pressure against the nerves alleviates the pain you are suffering from. The herniated disc is then able to heal.

However, care cannot be provided until a full evaluation of your condition is completed. During your first appointment a medical history will be taken. A hands-on exam will be done of your back. One or two x-rays may be ordered.

Your appropriate care plan can be recommended only after the conclusion of the examination. If spinal adjustments are the appropriate way to correct the misalignment, you will be scheduled for a series of appointments for them. Over time, the vertebrae may be returned to the correct position on the spine.

The pressure against the nerves will be reduced in small increments, thereby alleviating the pain. You will look forward to a time when you can return to work. The activities you once participated in may once again be possible.
