What is an Adjustment


An adjustment is a highly skilled and precise movement usually applied by the hands of a chiropractor to a joint of the patient’s body.

Adjustment loosens the joint to restore proper movement and optimize function. When a joint is adjusted, a gas bubble may escape, causing the popping noise you may have heard about.

Chiropractic adjustment techniques have been researched extensively. Complications are rare and side-effects, such as temporary soreness, are usually minor.

Chiropractors are well-trained to determine if your problem will respond to chiropractic care or if you require referral to another health care provider.
