- what is an adjustment?
- What does it help?
Chiropractic adjustments, or spinal manipulations, correct misalignment of vertebrae in the spine that may cause many issues, including pain. These misalignments are caused from normal daily activity to trauma, such as a car accident.
An adjustment is often a pressure from a chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to move a vertebrae back into place. This happens with a quick movement and is often without discomfort. 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.
