Chiropractic Adjustment

What is an Adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment, also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation, is a common therapeutic treatment for spinal and extremity pain. A chiropractic adjustment refers to a chiropractor applying manipulation to the vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally. The objective of this chiropractic treatment is to reduce the subluxation, with the goals of increasing range of motion, reducing nerve irritability and improving biomechanics.

Understanding Why We Do It

There are well over 100 types of adjustment techniques used by chiropractors throughout the world. We utilize the most gentle of these techniques. The common goal of most chiropractic techniques is to restore or to enhance joint function, with the general goals of resolving joint inflammation and reducing pain.
