Adjustments & Manipulation

Adjustment_2.jpg Adjustments, or manipulation, as they are sometimes referred to, are the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that are restricted and not moving properly for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to traumas such as a car accident.

When these vertebrae become restricted and do not move properly, it has an overall 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, our bodies do not function optimally.
An adjustment is often a pressure from the chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to move a vertebrae properly. This happens with a quick thrust of the hands 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.

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