A Chiropractic adjustment is a fast but low force movement that Chiropractors apply with their hands or sometimes specialised instruments to correct a joint which has become mis-aligned and therefore may be causing you pain or altered function by disrupting the messages being sent to and from your brain via your nerves.
An adjustment is just one of many tools a Chiropractor may use during a visit to restore your body’s optimum movement and function to improve not only your symptoms but your overall health.
Other tools Chiropractors use include
- Soft tissue massage/releases
- Posture education and advice
- Heat and ice
- General advice on lifestyle, nutrition, exercise and stress factors.
