When performing an adjustment, your doctor applies precisely directed force to a spinal joint that is out of alignment or not moving properly. Restoring normal motion to spinal joints can allow spinal bones to return to a more proper position, allowing your body to again function as it should. This safe, natural approach to restoring proper spinal and nervous system function can improve your overall health.
Not all adjustments are the same. Often, the doctor’s hands or a specially designed instrument are used to deliver a quick therapeutic thrust to the affected joint. Other techniques require slow, constant pressure.
Based on years of training and experience and careful evaluation of your unique spinal problem, your doctor will recommend a program of care designed for you and your specific needs.
