What is an adjustment ?

What is an adjustment ? An adjustment in chiropractic refers to the therapeutic movement of a bone or joint to restore its normal function. Misalignment or dysfunction in a joint can cause pain because a joint is not moving correctly or is not in its normal alignment. This is easy to understand for most people; they make an appointment because “their back went out.” What many people don’t realize is that this dysfunction can cause a host of problems such as: ⦁ muscle spasm or imbalance ⦁ restricted movement ⦁ inflammation ⦁ predisposition to degeneration ⦁ inhibition or irritation of your nervous system All of these affect your overall health. Your body is controlled by your Nervous System. Your brain, spinal cord, and all of the nerves in your body work to keep all aspects of you functioning. These spinal nerves exit through areas of your spinal column. When one of the bones in your spine is not in the right place, there may be pressure on the nearby nerve. This can interfere with its transmission and ultimately affect how you function. In chiropractic, we closely examine the spine to look for those areas of interference, called subluxation, and we correct the problem with a subtle joint shift referred to as an “adjustment.” Your doctor can tell you more, and answer any questions you may have, during your initial appointment.
