There are 24 bones that protect the spinal cord. These bones at times may lose their normal position or motion. When this happens, the nerve tissue may become choked or irritated. After a thorough examination, if there is malfunctioning present, chiropractic adjustments are recommended to correct the problem.
How does an adjustment work? The use of specific force in a precise direction is applied to a joint that is fixated, "locked up", or not moving properly. The purpose of the adjustment is to return the bones to their normal position or motion. The end result of this treatment is to alleviate pain and ill health.
There are many ways to adjust a spine. Adjustments may be administered by either the use of hands or a specially designed instrument.
