What is Chiropractic

A Manipulation or Chiropractic adjustment is the most common therapeutic procedure performed by chiropractic physicians. The purpose of the manipulation is to improve biomechanics or joint mobility by manually applying a specific, controlled force into joints that have become restricted in movement as a result of soft tissue injury. Most people associate soft tissue injury with a single traumatic event, such as an accident, fall or improperly lifting a heavy object. However, soft tissue injury can also result from repetitive stresses over an extended period of time. These stresses can include sitting or standing with poor posture, overusing “too tight” or “too weak” muscles and even stress. In all of these situations, these injured or weakened tissues can undergo numerous physical and chemical changes. This in turn can cause inflammation, pain and diminished function for the sufferer. Manipulation of these affected joints and tissues improves mobility, decreasing these physical and chemical changes, and thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness. This improves function and allows the tissues to heal properly.
