Adjustments and 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 the stimulation of healing and the realign of vertebrae that have been under mechanical stress for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as athletic injuries & car accidents.

When these vertebrae are under stress, they don't articulate or move properly which can have an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment, function 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 gentle pressure from the chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to stimulate proper movement and function of one or more vertebrae. This happens with a quick movement and is often without discomfort. Occasionally, a patient 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 proper alignment and function, the body is able to respond and perform as it was designed to.
