Benefits of Preventive Adjustments (part 1)

Share this

People often wonder if they should make preventive adjustments or proactively treat their mobility issues even if they are not in any pain. This blog is going to address that issue. I intend to give you a thorough understanding of how poor mobility in the spine can lead to other problems, inflame your body, negatively impact your immune system, release stress hormones, and make you age quickly.

I hope some people with take this knowledge and make an effort to identify their mobility issues, incorporate some of the simple tips here, and understand what value lies in getting regular adjustments even though they are not in pain.

I write this because many times people ask me if they can get adjusted even if they don’t have pain. Often it’s because it makes them feel good so partly this blog is to explain a PART of the reason why they feel better (more energy, happier, more relaxed, etc.) after getting adjusted.

I like to explain this as it relates to inflammation so let’s use some questions to guide this.

Part 1 – Joint restrictions and inflammation

Can joint restrictions contribute to a general inflammatory load on your body, thereby impacting your overall health, energy, and immunity?

Yes, joint restrictions can contribute to inflammation through various mechanisms:

  1. Altered Mechanics: When a joint is restricted, it disrupts its normal range of motion and mechanics. This can lead to abnormal stress and strain on surrounding tissues, including ligaments, tendons, and muscles. The increased mechanical stress can trigger inflammation as the body’s response to tissue damage or irritation.
  2. Synovial Fluid Alterations: Joint restrictions can affect the production and distribution of synovial fluid, which lubricates and nourishes the joint. Reduced movement can lead to decreased synovial fluid production and circulation, resulting in insufficient lubrication and nourishment of the joint surfaces. This can contribute to friction, wear, and tear, leading to inflammation.
  3. Impaired Blood Flow: Restricted joint movement can impede blood flow to the area, resulting in decreased oxygen and nutrient delivery to the tissues and impaired removal of metabolic waste products. This ischemic condition can promote inflammation and tissue damage.
  4. Neurological Influence: Joint restrictions can affect the sensory nerve fibers within and around the joint, leading to altered neural input to the central nervous system. This altered sensory input can trigger neurogenic inflammation, characterized by the release of inflammatory mediators from nerve endings, contributing to local inflammation and pain.
