Our experienced doctors are skilled at “joint manipulation,” also commonly called “chiropractic adjustments.” The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury from trauma or from a disease process like arthritis. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and reduced function for the sufferer. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.
Some potential patients are a bit scared about having somebody “popping” their backs. No worries! Our doctors are skilled in many techniques, several of them do not require any snapping, cracking or popping!
While the spine is most commonly associated with manipulation and chiropractic, our doctors are skilled at adjusting all joints including those in the feet and hands, the wrist, knee, hips, and shoulders.
