Adjustments, or manipulations as they're sometimes referred to are the re-positioning of vertebrae(back bone) in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of their normal place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident.
When the back bones are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can't function the way we were designed.
An adjustment is the force used by a chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to move a vertebrae back into place. This happens with a quick movement . You may hear a noise that sounds like you're cracking your knuckles referred to as joint cavitation. It is the release of gases such as oxygen and nitrogen from the joint. Should you not care for this type of adjustment we also offer you the Arthrostim adjustment without twisting or any joint noise.
Overall, adjustments have been proven to be an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level. When the body is in alignment, the body is able to respond and perform as it was designed to. You must be able to move easily, eat naturally and think positively!
