FAQ: What exactly is chiropractic adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is any chiropractic therapeutic procedure that uses controlled force, leverage, direction, strength and speed at a specific joint to restore normal motion and function, relieving muscle spasms, pain and nerve irritation. This controlled thrust moves a joint past its usual range of motion, without exceeding its limits. The term “adjustment” is used interchangeably with the term “Manipulation”.
