Chiropractic Adjustments

A chiropractic adjustment or manipulation is a safe and effective form of treatment. It is a highly skilled and specific force applied to a joint to restore full range of motion. The sudden stretch of the tissue surrounding a joint can also release any adhesions or scar tissue and promote proper bio-mechanical function of the area. The ‘popping’ or ‘cracking’ sound that you hear is gas being released from the joint. This allows for fluid to enter the joint and can promote nourishment inside the joint capsule. Adjustments are a safe mode of treatment and often give patients immediate relief afterwards.
