Chiropractic Manipulation

Chiropractic treatment is based on the concept that restricted movement in the spine may lead to pain and reduced function. Spinal adjustment (manipulation) is one form of therapy we use to treat restricted spinal mobility. The goal is to restore spinal movement and, as a result, improve function and decrease back pain.

During an adjustment we push the joint beyond its normal range of motion by applying a controlled sudden force with our hands. The joint’s movement may be accompanied by a popping or cracking sound. This is normal, and not something to be afraid of.
