A Chiropractic Adjustment is the art of using a specific force in a precise direction, applied to a joint that is fixated, "locked up", or not moving properly. This adds motion to the joint, helping the bones gradually return to a more normal position and motion. The purpose of this safe and natural procedure is improved spinal function, improved nervous system function, and improved health. There are many ways to adjust the spine. Usually, the doctor's hands or a specially designed instrument delivers a brief and highly accurate thrust. Not all patients will qualify or even benefit from Chiropractic Adjustments.
Chiropractors are experts in how your nervous system interacts with the rest of your body. For example, when the brain sends signals to tell your heart to pump blood or tell your legs to walk, it’s sending these signals along the collection of nerves that extend down your spine and through the rest of your body. Through everyday activities, the vertebrae that run along your spine can become misaligned and pinch some of the nerves in the spinal chord. When this happens, it can cause pain and interrupt the brain’s signals, preventing your body from responding optimally.
