What is a Chiropractic adjustment

A Chiropractic adjustment is the primary technique that Chiropractors use to help people.

Chiropractors will generally use their hands or a small instrument (activator) to apply a quick, very controlled movement to a dysfunctional spinal joint.


The purpose and benefit of an adjustment is to improve and restore the proper alignment, movement and tension to the spinal joint and its surrounding muscles and ligaments.


Most first time patients are usually quite surprised about how such a quick, gentle adjustment can have significant, and often immediate, improvement of their pain and problems.
