Chiropractic adjustments are specific and safe manipulations to a joint with a controlled force. The purpose of the adjustment is to restore mobility and proper alignment. Joint misalignments are called “subluxations” and can be caused by continuous poor posture, accidents, falls, or the stress of daily life. These misalignments can decrease joint mobility causing other joints to compensate and lead to early degeneration. Subluxations can be responsible for nerve impingement which can cause local discomfort, radiating pain, and organ dysfunction. The chiropractic adjustment is a safe and effective treatment to reduce pain, reduce nerve pressure, and improve mobility and posture.
