Chiropractic treatment is used to restore normal joint function and to promote neurobiomechanical harmony in the presence of tight or restricted joint movement. Chiropractic is best known for the use of spinal adjustments or manipulations. These are high velocity, low amplitude thrusts that can be applied to other joints of the body as well.
What does chiropractic feel like?
When receiving a spinal adjustment you may feel light pressure on your spinal joints and/or hear a popping sound, the result of joints moving quickly. Adjustments rarely hurt; instead you may have immediate pain relief and feel more relaxed.
Why is chiropractic used?
As a result of injury, overuse or even postural imbalances, muscles and joints become tight and restricted. In order to restore normal joint movement and function chiropractic manipulative therapy is needed.
