What is a Chiropractic adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment is the skill of using a specific force in a precise direction, applied to a joint that is fixated, "locked up", or not moving properly.This adds motion to the joint, helping the joints to gradually regain more normal motion and function.
The purpose of this procedure is to permit improved spinal function, improved nervous system function, and improved health.
There are many ways to adjust the spine. Usually the chirporactor's hands or a specially designed instrument delivers a brief, specific and highly accurate thrust. Some adjustment methods are quick, whereas others require a slow, constant or indirect pressure.
The techniques used in this clinic are of a low force nature, so often there will be no sound as the vertebrae are adjusted. It is introducing the movement into the joint that is important.
After years of university training and clinical experience, each chiropractor becomes highly skilled in the delivery of a variety of adjusting approaches.
