ADJUSTMENTS/ MANIPULATION

Adjustment refers to the specific manipulation chiropractors apply to vertebrae to restore normal movement patterns to allow the vertebrae function normally. The objective of the chiropractic treatment is to reduce the vertebral subluxation, which results in an increased range of motion, reduced nerve irritability and improved function. Adjustments consists of a precise low level force applied to a vertebra, which is often accompanied by an audible release of gas (joint cavitation). The audible sound is caused by the release of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide, which releases joint pressure and improve joint function.
