What is an Adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is the art of using a specific force in a specific direction, applied to a joint that is subluxated, “locked up”, or not moving properly. This adds motion to the joint, helping the bones gradually return to a more normal position and motion. The purpose of this safe and natural procedure is to improve spinal function, improve nervous system function and improve health.

There are many different ways to adjust the spine. The Chiropractor uses their hands or a specially designed instrument to apply a gentle force to a specific area of the spine.

After years of training and clinical experience your Chiropractor becomes highly skilled in the delivery of a variety of adjusting approaches. Regardless of the technique used, each chiropractic adjustment is tailored to suit the patient’s age, size, and unique spinal problem.
