Chiropractic Adjustments are the gentle release of pressure on the spine to restore proper nerve flow. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from physical, chemical, or emotional stress.
When these vertebrae 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 at our peak.
An adjustment is a gentle specific pressure from the chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to move a vertebrae back into place. This happens with a quick specific movement that often feels good to the patient. 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.
Overall, adjustments are 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.
