used quite frequently. Spinal adjustments are a common treatment method used by
chiropractors to relieve pain and improve the function of the body. In this blog post, we'll discuss
what spinal adjustments are and how they can benefit you.
The degenerative process begins within a few weeks following any injury that subluxated our spine.
What is a Spinal Adjustment?A spinal adjustment is a manual manipulation of the spine that involves applying a controlled force to a joint. The goal of the adjustment is to improve the alignment of the spine and increase range of motion. The adjustment itself is typically painless, although you may hear a popping or cracking soundas the joint is manipulated. This sound is caused by the release of gas bubbles from the joint fluid and is completely normal.
