Chiropractic Adjustments

After a thorough examination, a chiropractor adds a tailored and precise force to your spine at an opportune time and place, the chiropractic adjustment can be thought of as a gentle “nudge” to help restore better movement to the spine.

While the word chiropractic comes from the Greek meaning “done by hand,” there are many ways to adjust the spine.

Whether done with actual hands, various types of handheld instruments, blocks that harness the effect of gravity or by other means, a chiropractic adjustment is distinguished by the chiropractor’s intention.

It surprises many to learn that the intent of chiropractic adjustments is NOT to treat a disease, reduce pain or any other symptom. Instead, the intent of chiropractic adjustments is to help revive your spine’s ability to function more normally.

Helping your spine and nervous system to function to the best of its ability is the century-old basis of chiropractic.

What do chiropractic adjustments feel like? Usually quite pleasant. From a gentle stretch to a quick movement, it will all depend on the technique that is best determined to suit your presenting complaint.
