WE TREAT ALL JOINTS IN THE BODY
The most common therapeutic procedure performed by chiropractors is known as “spinal manipulation,” or “chiropractic adjustment.” 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. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting technique, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting with an awkward posture for extended periods of time.
In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for the sufferer. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joints and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness and allowing tissues to heal.
Chiropractic adjustment rarely causes discomfort. However, patients may sometimes experience mild soreness or aching following treatment (as with some forms of exercise) that usually resolves within 12 to 48 hours.
