Chiropractic Adjustment
 

Manual spinal manipulation, commonly known as a chiropractic adjustment, is a non-invasive technique that uses controlled force applied to specific joints in the spine or other areas of the body. Adjustments can alleviate pain, improve mobility, and promote overall well-being.

What is a chiropractic adjustment?

During an appointment at our office, our doctors will determine which areas of the body will benefit from an adjustment, and which therapies will be beneficial for pain relief and healing. Our doctors will conduct a thorough exam, understanding medical history, perform a physical examination, and may request additional diagnostic tests such as x-rays. 

The actual adjustment involves the chiropractor using their hands or specialized instruments to apply controlled pressure and quick thrusts to the targeted joint. The aim is to correct misalignments, reduce joint restrictions, and alleviate pain or discomfort. Although the adjustment iteself may produce a cracking or popping sound, it is generally painless and safe.
