Our chiropractic adjustment techniques
A chiropractic adjustment, also known as spinal manipulation, is a type of manual therapy to help to ease pressure on joints and improve the range of spinal motion. The therapy is often used to treat neck, back, shoulder and headache, but chiropractors also treat other minor ailments.
There are more than 100 types of spinal manipulation techniques used by chiropractors. Some of these techniques are gentle, while others involve the application of a controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint.
