WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC?

“As spine, muscle, and nervous system experts, chiropractors provide qualified, effective treatment to promote health, alleviate pain, and improve your quality of life.

Chiropractors focus on your spine, muscle, and nervous system and treat the bones, muscles, soft tissues, and joints that you use every day. The spine, muscle, and nervous system supports your weight, keeps your body stable, protects your organs, and keeps you moving. It also connects directly to other vital systems in your body, which is why medical professionals, researchers, and the wider health community trust the spine care expertise of chiropractors to assess, diagnose, and treat conditions and injuries related to the spine, muscle, and nervous system.” –CCA

WHAT IS A CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT?

A chiropractic adjustment is a precisely gentle movement. This movement is applied by the hand to a joint within the body. The goal of a  chiropractic adjustment is to restore both function and movement to the body. This can be likened to a soda can that has increased pressure within. In the same way, a joint will often have increased pressure within its joint capsule. This is similar to how when you “pop” open a soda can, you hear the pressure releasing. This is what happens when a joint has been adjusted, similar to “cracking” a knuckle. Therefore, the sound we hear is gas releasing from a joint within the body. But it should be noted that the noise of gas releasing is not necessary when an adjustment is performed. It is, however, a common experience.
