Spinal Adjustments in Lancaster, PA

Over the course of daily life, your spine experiences a variety of stressors that can jostle it out of alignment. These misalignments (called “subluxations”) can inhibit your body’s ability to heal and may eventually cause chronic pain and other more serious conditions.

Spinal adjustments performed by a licensed chiropractor can restore your spine to its natural alignment, relieving pain and improving your body’s ability to heal itself.

What to Expect During a Spinal Adjustment


One of our licensed chiropractors will ask you to sit or lie down. He will then use his hands to apply gentle, controlled force. You may hear a popping or cracking sound, which is perfectly normal.

Similar to the soreness you’d feel after a new workout, you may feel a little sore after your first chiropractic treatment. If you’re already experiencing a high level of pain or tension, we may recommend light massage or physical therapy before chiropractic treatment. Typically, our patients feel looser and more relaxed than when they came into the office. Any soreness experienced is a welcomed change when compared to the pain they used to have.
