Chiropractic treatments are concerned with addressing issues of the musculoskeletal system with the goal of restoring normal joint function and promoting neurobiomechanical harmony. Muscles and joints can become tight and restricted due to injury, overuse, or postural imbalances.
A chiropractic adjustment can restore normal joint movement and function through techniques that mainly involve manual therapy, spinal manipulation (spinal adjustment), and the manipulation of joints and soft tissues. When receiving a spinal adjustment, you may feel light pressure on your spinal joints and you may hear a popping sound, which is the result of joints moving quickly. Adjustments rarely hurt - instead you may have immediate pain relief and feel more relaxed.
