Adjustments & Manipulation
 

Adjustment_2.jpg Adjustments, or manipulation as they're sometimes referred to, are the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to improve the motion of the vertebrae that have become restricted, or "stuck".  Vertebrae become restricted for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident.

When these vertebrae are not moving properly, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper motion and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can't function at our peak.

An adjustment is often a pressure from the chiropractor utilizing the hands to restore the motion of the "stuck" vertebrae. 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 from the joint.

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