A Chiropractic adjustment is a specific force administered in a precise direction to a joint that has a biomechanical dysfunction. In simple terms it is a means to restore normal movement to a restricted or fixated joint. The purpose of this safe and natural procedure is to permit improved spinal or peripheral joint movement, reduce or eliminate pain in the symptomatic patient, aid restoration of normal muscular function and return normal movement patterns to the affected parts of the body.
There are many ways to adjust the spine. Either the Chiropractor’s hands or a specially designed instrument delivers a brief and highly-accurate thrust. Some adjusting methods are quick, whereas others require a slow and constant pressure.
After years of training and clinical experience, each Chiropractic Doctor becomes highly skilled in the delivery of a variety of adjusting approaches.
