Chiropractic Adjustment

Chiropractic adjustments are highly specialized manipulative techniques.

 

They are performed by hand and are applied to a specific hypomobile/fixated vertebra in the spine or joint, using a high velocity; low amplitude thrust.

Adjustments are safe and some patients experience immediate relief as the joint is restored to its normal position and motion, and the nerve is freed from any restrictive pressure or irritation.

Gapping of the joint surfaces, with the resultant formation and collapse of gas bubbles that appear within the synovial fluid of a joint, may result in the “popping”/”cracking”/”clicking” sound that is heard during a chiropractic adjustment.
