Getting Adjusted

Doctors of Chiropractic are specialists in neuromusculoskeletal conditions. We are trained to restore the misaligned vertebrae to their proper position in the spinal column. This is done manually, utilizing the chiropractic procedure known as "spinal adjustment." In most cases, the hands are used to apply corrective pressure to the spine in a specific direction and location. The manual force, or thrust, that is applied helps restore the alignment and mobility of the vertebrae. In some cases, instrumentation may be used to detect subluxations and adjust the spine.

Under normal circumstances, chiropractic adjustments are painless. In cases of recent trauma, such as whiplash, mild discomfort may be experienced due to inflammation. It is also common to feel a brief sensation in the extremities immediately following an adjustment due to the sudden decompression of the affected nerve root.

When any of the 24 moveable spinal vertebrae become misaligned, a basic imbalance or disruption can occur in the nervous and blood vascular systems, which may contribute to stress in the body. Chiropractic adjustments help eliminate that imbalance or disruption so that the body can function at its true potential.
