A chiropractic adjustment sometimes referred to as a chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation, is the primary chiropractic treatment method.
The adjustment restores normal joint function, relieves pressure on joints, reduces inflammation, and improves nerve function.This restores normal tone to the body systems. It has been a trusted form of treatment since the ancient Greek Hippocrates documented manipulative techniques in his writings back in 1500 B.C. Today, spinal manipulation is used to treat many health conditions.
How Does Spinal Manipulation Work?
There are well over 100 types of adjustment techniques used by chiropractors throughout the world. Some practitioners may use force and twisting, while other techniques are more gentle. Regardless of how they are performed, these techniques are intended to restore or enhance joint function with the objectives of reducing pain and resolving joint inflammation. This ultimately will restore systematic body tones.
When vertebrae become dysfunctional, there is an overall systemic response from the muscular system and the nervous system. Without proper alignment and movement, our nerves, immune system, and brain cannot function at their highest peak.
Overall, spinal adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level without any discomfort. When the body function properly, it becomes able to respond and perform naturally to maintain itself.
