When the 24 bones that protect the spinal cord lose their normal position or motion, delicate nerve tissue can become impeded or aggravated. If a thorough examination reveals malfunctioning areas of the spine, chiropractic adjustments are recommended to help correct this condition.
A chiropractic adjustment is the use of a specific force in a precise direction, applied to a joint that is fixated, locked-up or not moving properly. Adjustments help return the bones to a more normal position or motion, alleviating pain and ailing health.
There are many different ways to adjust the spine. Chiropractors use their hands or a specially designed instrument to apply a gentle force to a specific area of the spine. Regardless of the technique used, each chiropractic adjustment is tailored to suit the patients age, size and unique spinal problem.
Adjustments help normalise spinal function and avoid bone and soft tissue degeneration. Once the nervous system function improves, the body can begin the natural healing process.
