What is a Spinal Adjustment?
A spinal adjustment, also known as chiropractic manipulation, or spinal manipulation, is a common therapeutic treatment for lower back pain. A spinal adjustment refers to when a chiropractor applies manipulation to the vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally.
The objective of a spinal adjustment treatment is to reduce subluxation, which is a disorder of the spine where the alignment and physiological functions of the spine are altered, with the goals of increasing range of motion, reducing nerve irritability, and improving function.
An adjustment is a safe, natural, noninvasive procedure to restore and improve health. Learning the art of adjusting is a skill that requires years of study and practice. They are best left to chiropractic doctors. Spinal adjustments by any other individual or health care professional have been shown to be dangerous and less effective.
In basic terms, a spinal adjustment or spinal manipulation refers to the process in which the doctor of chiropractic skillfully applies controlled force into one or more “subluxated” vertebrae of the spine. The adjustment is also frequently used in the pelvic region to normalize the sacroiliac joints. The adjustment is usually delivered using the hands or through the use of a specialized mechanical tool.
