Adjustments & Manipulation

Adjustment_2.jpg Adjustments, or manipulation as they're sometimes referred, are the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place; this movement can happen due to a number of reasons, ranging from normal daily activity to traumas such as a car accident, or to a slip and fall.

When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from the muscular system to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment of the spine the flow of nerve communication from the spinal cord to body cannot function at its peak.

An adjustment is often a pressure from the chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to move a vertebra back into place. This happens with a quick movement and is often without discomfort. You may hear a noise that sounds like you are cracking your knuckles; this is referred to as a “joint cavitation.” It is the release of the gases oxygen and nitrogen from the joint.

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