A chiropractic adjustment refers to a chiropractor applying manipulation to the vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally. Chiropractic adjustment is a highly refined skill acquired during years of intensive training. To do that, CORE Health Centers’ chiropractor will apply pressure to the bone and unlock, or free, them from their improper position. The bone will then be free to align itself correctly. When a patient has a subluxation, chiropractic adjustment can be used to correct the misalignment, which in turn helps enhance joint mobility, reduce pain, reduce muscle spasm, and reduce nerve irritation or impingement. During chiropractic adjustment treatments, a relieving sensation is felt most of the time, although minor discomfort has been reported if the surrounding muscles are in spasm or the patient tenses up during this chiropractic care.
