Conditions Treated with Spinal Adjustment

Spinal adjustment, also known as chiropractic adjustment or spinal manipulation, is rooted in the belief that a properly aligned spine contributes to overall well-being.

From back and neck pain to migraines and digestive issues, spinal adjustment addresses a myriad of conditions related to the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Dr. Christopher Oviatt and Dr. Michelle Martinook at Castledowns Chiropractic Clinic in Edmonton have years of experience utilizing spinal adjustment for a wide range of issues.

Back Pain and Neck Pain

Many patients seeking chiropractic care find relief from the discomfort caused by conditions such as herniated discs, muscle strains, and ligament sprains. With precise manual adjustments, chiropractors aim to realign the spine, reducing pressure on nerves and promoting natural healing. 

Headaches and Migraines

The cervical spine plays a crucial role in supporting the head and facilitating blood flow to the brain. Misalignments in this region can contribute to tension headaches or migraines. Through targeted adjustments, chiropractors work to restore proper alignment and alleviate the underlying issues that may be triggering these conditions.


Sciatica, characterized by pain radiating along the sciatic nerve, often results from compression or irritation of the spinal nerves in the lower back. By relieving pressure on the affected nerves, spinal adjustments help to reduce the pain, inflammation, and discomfort associated with sciatica.

Chiropractic care offers a non-surgical alternative for those suffering from sciatica. If you've been looking into spinal adjustment for your pain in Edmonton, book an appointment with Dr. Oviatt or Dr. Martinook at Castledowns Chiropractic Clinic today. 

Joint Pain

Conditions such as osteoarthritis, whiplash from motor vehicle injuries, and other joint disorders can benefit from spinal adjustments, as they can help improve joint function, reduce inflammation, and alleviate pain associated with these conditions.
