Learn About Chiropractic Adjustments and Manipulations

Your adjustment, sometimes referred to as a manipulation, is the minor movement of vertebrae in your spine. The purpose is to restore mobility to stiff and restricted vertebrae that may have been impacted by daily activity or trauma, such as a car accident.

When your vertebrae are restricted, you can experience systematic effects involving your muscular and central nervous system. If you don't have the right mobility and flow of nerves and systems in your body from the brain, then you won't function at your peak.

You may be amazed by the results of your adjustment. Get the relief you need with our reliable assistance.

What to Expect During Your Adjustment?

  • Your chiropractor will use pressure to restore mobility
  • Your adjustment may be done with just the hands
  • Instruments may be used for your adjustment
  • Your doctor will use quick movements
  • Adjustments are often without discomfort
  • You may hear a sound similar to the cracking of your knuckles
  • Joint cavitation releases gases like oxygen and nitrogen
Put simply, an adjustment is a great way to keep your body functioning at its highest level. If your body is in alignment, then it's best able to respond and perform in the way it was designed to do.
