The Purpose of Chiropractic Adjustments

Adjustments or manipulations are specialized techniques to address the cause and varying symptoms of musculoskeletal conditions, particularly those affecting the spine.

Chiropractic theory posits that a misaligned spine disrupts the proper functioning of the nervous system. Suboptimal nervous system functioning can lead to various health problems, which may include pain, stiffness, a lack of mobility, and more. By correcting spinal misalignments, chiropractors aim to enhance the body's natural healing abilities, which ultimately supports better overall health.

What Happens During a Typical Chiropractic Visit?

During a typical chiropractic visit, a chiropractor adjusts or manipulates the spine with a sudden, controlled force applied to the affected region.  The primary goal is to promote your joint’s mobility, which helps to restore proper spinal alignment, thereby reducing or eliminating pain, tension in surrounding muscles, related inflammation, compressed nerves, and more.

Depending on the condition and the patient, a chiropractor may perform a spinal adjustment using special instruments or their hands in conjunction with the concept of leverage.

  • Chronic or Acute –
