Read a detailed, step-by-step description of how spinal manipulation of the cervical spine works.
A chiropractor will often perform a spinal manipulation procedure called a "high-velocity, low-amplitude" spinal adjustment to help relieve and heal from lower back, mid-back, or neck pain.
Mobilization of the spine does not include hard maneuvers. They may be as gentle as a massage or simple stretching or may use tools to adjust the components of the spine and help pain relief and healing.
Before a patient undergoes spinal MUA, they must be screened for any conditions that would make the body unlikely to safely handle the procedure.
Manipulation under anesthesia procedures may vary from patient to patient as medical necessity indicates by the involved tissues, and existing relative contraindications/possible complications that may exist.
Post manipulation under anesthesia, the patient should experience an immediate increase in range of motion, even though there is usually some temporarily added muscle soreness.
