At Lehmann Chiropractic, one of the main treatments provided for patients is chiropractic adjustments, also referred to as spinal manipulation.
Chiropractic adjustments help to put the spine back into the proper alignment, taking pressure off nerves and boosting range of motion to reduce pain and help the body work at its best. Proper spinal alignment reduces pain and helps the nervous system carry out its roll of directing and controlling every tissue cell in your body. Dr. Lehmann creates targeted treatment plans based on the needs of each individual patient.
If you’ve never visited a chiropractor before, the thought of having an adjustment may seem daunting. It can be helpful to learn more about this practice so you can understand what is happening during the treatment.
During an adjustment, Dr. Lehmann will put gentle force on specific vertebrae to improve spinal alignment and range of motion. You might hear a popping noise during treatment. This is simply joint gas releasing and is nothing to be concerned about.
During treatments, Dr. Lehmann can also provide milder forms of chiropractic manipulation, such as Activator Technique and lifestyle guidance.
It’s important for you to receive regular chiropractic adjustments to maintain proper alignment and function of the spine and joints. Sports, poor sleep habits, or poor posture can cause frequent problems to occur in the spine, as well as other areas. Regular adjustments help you keep your nervous system healthy and well-tuned.

Three years ago, I was a broken man and then I met Dr. Lehmann. I agonized at the thought of putting my boots on in the morning, much less actually doing it because my back hurt so bad. I went to a family doctor 4 years before seeing Dr. Lehmann (7 years ago). He took X-Rays, said everything looked good, gave me some pain pills and muscle relaxers, and sent me on my way. When the pills ran out and the pain didn’t stop, I went to another family doctor who wanted to do an MRI this time and warned that back surgery was probably in my future. I know people who had back surgery and ended up worse than before and suffered through great depression as a result. I had nightmares about being cripple in my 30’s with three young kids. I lost weight to make sure it wasn’t the extra pounds over the years making it worse. No success. I was now at the point of not being able to sleep because of the pain. I was hopeless. Then one day at work, a colleague saw the pain in my eyes and told me the success he had using a chiropractor. First number that popped up on my internet search was Dr. Lehmann. I left him a message and he called back 5 minutes later apologizing that he didn’t pick up when I called because he was with another patient. He heard the pain and desperation in my voice and brought me in that day. He started with X-Rays and I shook my head because I already knew that wasn’t going to work, but I was wrong! He took a few minutes and pointed out what he saw were the obvious sources of my pain and then said “It’s going to take some time to get you where you should be, but we can stop this and I can give you some relief today.” I couldn’t believe it. What? Today? Then he did, right there, that day. Tears filled my eyes because I now had hope and the nightmare was over. I lived with this pain for as long as I could remember and unlike a fine wine, it did not get better with age. God answered a prayer by putting Dr. Lehmann in my life and I can’t thank either of them enough.
