Adjustments & Manipulation


Adjustment_2.jpg Adjustments, or manipulation as they're sometimes referred to, are the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident.

When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can't function at our peak.

An adjustment is often a pressure from the chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to move a vertebrae back into place. This happens with a quick movement and is often without discomfort. You may hear a noise that sounds like you're cracking your knuckles referred to as joint cavitation. It is the release of gases such as oxygen and nitrogen from the joint.

Overall, adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level. When the body is in alignment, the body is able to respond and perform as it was designed to.

When I first came to your office, about 9 years ago, I was in chronic pain in my neck, back and shoulders. Unfamiliar with chiropractic at that time, I was initially apprehensive but you helped me feel at ease right away and within a few short weeks of treatment, I was pain-free. What a relief! My life was instantly improved. Periodic adjustments over the years have kept me on track. Your compassionate care, coupled with state-of-the-art technology, are a winning combination. Thank you so very much for your compassion, care and expertise. You’re the BEST! And I am so grateful that, with your help, I can live pain-free. Thank you!

How could I have imagined what was in store for me the morning I got out of bed noticing a slight discomfort in my left buttock. Over the course of the day it didn't go away as I had hoped but also seemed no worse so I didn't dwell on it. Thinking I had slept in some position to bring it on, I hoped the next nights rest would make it go away. The second morning, the discomfort was more distinct, with slight pain down my leg so I decided to see the chiropractor who has helped me with previous back pain problems. Dr. Reilly did an assessment through various bending, stretching and reaching exercises and said the problem was not in my left leg but in the lower back, (L-5 disc) which is fairly common and treatable. I began regular chiropractic treatments including electro-stimulation and adjustments, later adding decompression traction. The pain down my leg progressed steadily as a particular nerve became severely affected. Sitting was nearly impossible leading Dr. Reilly to do an x-ray which showed a more difficult problem with the disc. He advised me to see my family doctor. Along with continued chiropractor treatments including now a cold laser, my family physician ordered pain medication and an MRI. We decided the problem could be corrected without surgery, so we reached out to a Carolina Spine specialist for further expertise. With epidural steroid injections and on-going chiropractic work, this team approach has been very beneficial and I am feeling almost "all the way back". I commend Dr. Reilly for his warm, caring professional work throughout. It is fortunate for people in the Fairview area that we can partake of his services and rely on his expert advice.

In July of 2008 I started experiencing headaches that over months became increasing worse. I went to see my family doctor who said it was allergies/sinus problems and prescribed a daily allergy medication as well as pain medication. The headaches continued and became worse to the extent they were interfering with my daily life. I was taking massive amounts of pain relievers with no relief. I noticed on Fairview Chiropractic’s sign they treated headaches. My daughter had been treated by Dr. Reilly for sports related injuries and issues while playing sports at A. C. Reynolds with great success so I decided I would give them a call to see if they could help me.

During my first visit they took the time to talk to me and find out what problems I was having, they took x-rays and measurements. I returned for my report of findings to learn that the x-ray showed that I had cervical vertebrae that had become twisted and was putting pressure on the nerves in my neck. Dr. Reilly laid out a course of treatment for me and began treatments. I left my first treatment amazed at how much better I felt. I continued the course of treatment that Dr. Reilly had set for me as well as exercises at home. I also during that time experienced lower back pain which I have had since the birth of my children that limited my ability to do things such as vacuum, mop, garden or even shop for long periods of time without pain. I spoke with Dr. Reilly about this and he assured me that he could treat that too.

I am now going every 2 weeks for adjustments and there are no words that can describe how wonderful I feel, I have had absolutely no headaches and my lower back pain is pretty much no existent. It is such a wonderful feeling to wake up every morning and know that you are going to have a pain free day.

Dr. Reilly is always very interested in your course of care, are always concerned that you are not experiencing any pain and will make suggestions and give advice on your continued improvement.

The office staff is always very professional, friendly and helpful.

I recommend them highly to my family, friends and co-workers any time they tell me they are experiencing any type of pain.

Thanks to everyone at Fairview Chiropractic for all they have done to improve my quality of life.

I just want to say thank you to so much to everyone at Fairview Chiropractic for making me feel so great! The pain I was experiencing before I began chiropractic care was very intense and left me miserable. I was unable to find relief with my medical doctor and decided to give chiropractic care a try. I was suffering from a sciatic nerve problem and a bulging disc. My sciatic nerve problem wasn't a nerve problem at all it was an alignment problem. My right hip was so out of alignment that it was pulling on everything. After Dr. Reilly adjusted me a few times my pain was completely gone and hasn't ever come back! I suffered needlessly for years. Then I injured myself and as a result had a bulging disc. Most times this requires surgery to repair but Dr. Reilly suggested I try traction on the CTS machine. After 3 visits I could really tell a difference and with a few more I was once again pain free - without surgery! I really can't say enough about the care and help I have received from Fairview Chiropractic!

I would just like to tell everyone what Dr. Reilly and Fairview Chiropractic Center has done for me. The week before last week I woke up with what I thought was a migraine headache and called Fairview Chiropractic Center to be seen. Dr. Reilly treats my migraines with adjustments. Instead of a migraine I had two bulging discs in my neck.

Dr. Reilly took X-rays and began treating me with the DTS, electro-stem, ice and adjustments. At the time he began to treat me I could not turn my head to the left without having severe pain down both arms and a debilitating headache. I have seen Dr. Reilly a total of 10 times for this treatment, and I now am pain free with no headache, no neck pain and no arm pain. This was all accomplished through non-surgical means and without being prescribed long term muscle relaxers or pain medications.

I would just like to add that I have seen Dr. Reilly for several years for different injuries, and after being treated by Dr. Reilly had no long term negative effects. I like the ability to go to him and not have to take medication for things that can be treated and get better without them.
