A Chiropractic Adjustment is a gentle, safe, specific, controlled force applied to a joint to restore proper function and mobility. Chiropractic adjustments help to reduce pain while increasing movement and performance. The goal is to release the pressure being applied on the joints helping to boost the central nervous system.
Chiropractors use different methods to perform chiropractic adjustments. Some may use their hands to adjust the joints back into place, others may use a drop table or activator, still, more may rely on more gentle stretching to ease the joints to their proper position. Regardless of the specific method used, the goal of chiropractic adjustment is to restore proper alignment to the joints and allow the body to heal naturally.
