Find relief from discomfort through chiropractic care.

Dr. Patricia Kiser can improve the alignment of your body with a chiropractic adjustment. If you are interested in this service, schedule your chiropractic adjustment with us at our Palo Alto location.

During your appointment at University Chiropractic and Wellness, our chiropractor will talk to you about areas where you are feeling discomfort, so she can address those areas while simultaneously aligning the rest of your body. If you have any questions, please reach out to a member of our team and we would be more than happy to help.

Chiropractic adjustments are treatments designed to manipulate vertebrae with abnormal movement patterns or which do not function correctly. This treatment targets inflammation in your body to relieve pain and discomfort, and to improve your health and quality of life.

Inflammation is a natural response and is the most common cause of discomfort and pain in your body. Inflammation may occur as a result of damage to supporting tissues, pathogens, or even a high level of stress.

Chiropractic adjustments are typically performed for individuals with lower back pain. They may also be recommended for those who experience frequent pain or discomfort, have a limited range of motion, or have nerve irritability.

There are two types of chiropractic adjustments – manual chiropractic adjustments and instrument-assisted chiropractic adjustments. Both perform the same functions, but in manual adjustments, the treatment is performed with hands only, rather than with any kind of external equipment.

Chiropractic adjustments are effective for patients of all ages and may be recommended for anyone in a period of life where inflammation may be common, such as during pregnancy or at the beginning of a newborn’s life. Chiropractic treatment can also help treat conditions such as high blood pressure, ear infections, and digestive issues.

When you receive a chiropractic adjustment, our chiropractor will have you lie face-down on a treatment table. Your spine and the surrounding areas will then be gently manipulated to target inflammation in your body and relieve your pain and discomfort.

Most patients who receive chiropractic treatment experience a relieving sensation. You may feel some discomfort during the procedure if your surrounding muscles spasm or if you tense up during treatment. Our chiropractor may recommend that your chiropractic adjustment be performed in conjunction with massage therapy or another relaxation treatment.
