Adjustments & Manipulation


Adjustment_2.jpg Adjustments or manipulations are the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for numerous reasons, ranging from normal daily activity to trauma like a car accident or sports injury.

When these vertebrae are out of place, it has a systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can't function at our peak.

An adjustment is often a pressure from the chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to move a vertebrae back into place. This happens with a quick movement and is often without discomfort. You may hear a noise that sounds like you're cracking your knuckles referred to as joint cavitation. It is the release of gases such as oxygen and nitrogen from the joint. Adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level. When the body is in its healthy alignment, it is able to respond and perform the way it was designed.
