Adjustments and Manipulation

Adjustments, or manipulation are best referred to as a gentle yet specific movement of the vertebrae in the spine or any other joint in the body. The objective of this movement is to address dysfunctional joint movements and allow body to move efficiently again.

When these vertebrae are not moving correctly, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper joint movements you can develop muscle imbalances, tightness, stiffness and lose your body's ability to perform at it's peak.

An adjustment is often a quick impulse from the chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to provide movement into a restricted spinal segment. 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 as the joint spaces temporarily gap.

Overall, adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level. When the body is in alignment and moving efficiently, the body is able to respond and perform as it was designed to.
