What Exactly Is a Chiropractic Adjustment?

To understand properly how our chiropractic care helps you, we first need to explain the concept of a subluxation.


When the joints of your spine become misaligned from trauma or stress, the result is a subluxation. This will cause irritation to the nearby nerve roots, leading to your pain symptoms.

These irritated nerves will then cause swelling in your soft tissues, restricting your movement and sending you on a downward spiral of impaired motion and join degeneration. A chiropractic adjustment doesn’t actually move or shift your bones, contrary to what many might think.

Moving in the Right Direction

What we really do is to imitate motion in the direction of the needed correction, which will reduce your swelling and decrease pressure on your nerves. This brings balance back to your muscles.

The end result…Restored balance in the soft tissues of your joint, improved motion and optimal nerve function.
