How is a Chiropractic Adjustment Performed?

A chiropractic adjustment, known also as a spinal adjustment or spinal manipulation, is intended to provide relief to those suffering from any number of spinal misalignments or dysfunctions. A chiropractic adjustment strives to change alignment, motion or function within any vertebral joint in the spine.

Using the skills that one acquires from years of intensive training, a chiropractor will perform a chiropractic adjustment in order to provide a patient with relief from back pain, headaches, neck problems and issues with the extremities. Using his or her hands in order to manipulate vertebral joints in the spine, a chiropractor will typically perform a swift, precise thrust in order to adjust the spine. Depending on various adjustment methods, a patient may be positioned on their side, on their back or on their front, and a chiropractor will use the appropriate amount of force in order to achieve proper results.

Whether using one's hands or a variety of chiropractic instruments, and whether applying gentle pressure with his or her fingertips or performing a quick, exact thrust using firm force, an Ottawa chiropractor will ensure that he or she meets the needs of each patient, providing relief, immediate changes in symptoms, decreased muscle tension, reduced stress and more.
