Spinal Manipulation Therapy

Spinal manipulation therapy (also called an “adjustment”) is a safe, highly skilled procedure, in which the chiropractor will use their hands to apply controlled force to your joint and guide it through a range of motion.

Understanding Chiropractic Adjustments Procedure, Effects, and Suitability.

Chiropractic adjustments are used to restore joint motion and improve function.  With this procedure, the patient may hear a “cracking” or “popping” sound that is caused by pressure changes within the joint. These pressure changes cause a gas bubble to escape from the joint capsule, which creates the sound. 

While chiropractic adjustments are a very safe procedure, they are not indicated for all patients.  A thorough history and physical examination will determine whether you are a good candidate for an adjustment. Alternative treatments, such as joint mobilizations, can be used in place of an adjustment when indicated
