Chiropractic adjustments or manipulation is a form of healthcare that focuses on the relationship between the body’s structure, primarily of the spine, and function. Our doctors of chiropractic use a type of hands-on therapy called manipulation (or adjustment) as their core clinical procedure.
Adjustments are used to correct vertebral subluxations. Spinal manipulation has been documented as far back as Hippocrates and the ancient Egyptians. The techniques were often handed down from generation to generation by families of bonesetters. Many adjustment techniques and methods have been developed through the years by chiropractors. Each is designed to eliminate the subluxations that can cause your nervous system to not communicate properly with the rest of your body’s systems.
