The purpose of chiropractic adjustments is to add movement to joints that are otherwise not moving well (or are “stuck”). By “adjusting” joints or getting the proper motion back, range of motion is restored (patient feels they can move better), muscles surrounding the joint relax, a re-setting effect on the nearby nerves occurs, and there is a release of endorphins that happens(feel good chemicals). Our patients often report a pleasant sense of release following the adjustment.  

There are many ways to perform an adjustment:Chiropractor info

  1. A specific, fast, low amplitude and highly-accurate thrust (after which a release of gas from the joint can occur; this is the “cracking/pooping” noise that is heard)
  2. Instrument directed energy (very gentle form of adjustment that is still highly accurate and effective)
  3. Slow, constant pressure/mobilization

Everyone Benefits

If your chiropractor diagnoses you with a condition for which an adjustment is the best course of action, it is important to note that adjustments are tailored to your size, age and particular health issue. Everyone from newborns, infants, children, seniors and even back surgery patients can get adjusted. 

Find out if you have a condition that would benefit from a chiropractic adjustment by scheduling a no-obligation consultation to discuss your problem.
