Spinal Adjustment Q & A


Dr. Matthew Shave of 34th Street Chiropractic and Wellness in the Midtown Manhattan area of New York, New York provides expert and caring spinal adjustments with his unique focus on applied kinesiology and cranio-sacral therapy.



What Is a Spinal Adjustment?

A chiropractic doctor offers a drug-free form of healthcare for the treatment of mobility problems and pain with spinal adjustments. These adjustments are employed to correct misalignments that are the result either of prolonged improper body positions or direct injury. With a spinal adjustment, the doctor enables a patient’s body to heal naturally by restoring proper function to the nervous system.

Poor bodily function and overall body health can be the result of even the slightest misalignment in a patient’s spine. Chiropractic care involves an overall treatment plan that ensures a person’s spine remains in optimal condition, thus reducing the likelihood of injury, which helps to maintain overall health at the highest possible level without the use of surgery or medication. Dr. Bobrowsky’s state-of-the-art therapy methods ensure freedom from chronic pain and improvement of health.

What Occurs During a Chiropractic Adjustment?

An initial consultation with the chiropractic doctor will answer:

  • How and when did the pain problem begin?
  • What is the location of discomfort or pain?
  • How does the patient describe the pain: dull, sharp, throbbing, burning or searing?
  • Is the pain the result of an injury?

Therapists use their hands and small instruments to apply force to targeted regions of the spine to adjust a person’s structural alignment, which in turn, improves overall health.

Why Choose Chiropractic Care?

Whether from a major traumatic incident, such as an automobile accident or a minor slip and fall at home or the mall, the pain that follows can generally be treated with chiropractic care. The patient does not need drugs because a spinal adjustment allows for normal nerve transmission and recovery that occurs naturally.

Dr. Bobrowsky and the dedicated staff of 34th Street Chiropractic and Wellness focus on treating their patient’s back, neck and extremity pain. Their goal is to relieve pain as quickly as possible, so their patients can return to their normal daily activities. A key factor to the success of this treatment is that doctor and patient work together to achieve the desired health goals.
