A chiropractic adjustment, also known as spinal manipulation, is an adjustment done by hand or with small instruments to apply a controlled force to a joint in the body. Stress, accidents, overexertion, or just daily life can change the positioning of the spine and impact the body tissues and nervous systems. Adjustments are applied to joints that are fixated, "locked up" or not moving properly which, when left untreated, can make you more susceptible to persistent pain and chronic health problems. Chiropractic adjustments help to return the vertebrae to a more normal position, therefore, restoring the body's natural healing. By doing so, chiropractic care can help to increase mobility, improve performance, and reduce pain! At Results Family Chiropractic, there is no twisting or cracking! All adjustments are done with the patient lying face down on the adjusting table.
