Adjustments

Adjustment_2.jpg Adjustments are the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident.

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 often a pressure from the 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, these gases remain within the joint capsule and is a harmless noise that may or may not be heard. Some adjustments make no noise at all but the results are the same, a properly moving joint and better health.

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.
