What are Chiropractic Adjustments?


One of the most common and well-known therapeutic procedures performed by doctors of chiropractic is the chiropractic adjustment, also referred to as a spinal manipulation. The purpose of a chiropractic adjustment is to restore joint mobility by applying a controlled force into the joints that have become restricted in their movement, causing hypomobility as a result of a tissue injury.

These tissue injuries can occur from traumatic events, like automobile accidents, work related injuries while lifting heavy objects, or through repetitive movements that cause persistent soft tissue trauma.  Awkward spinal postures for extended periods of time can also cause soft tissue injuries that lead to spinal joint misalignment, resulting in inflammation, pain, and diminished functional abilities for an individual.

An adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility decreasing inflammation, nerve irritation and the resulting pain and muscle tightness. These adjustments release your nervous systems full potential to influence healing and prevent disease throughout your body. Schumacher Chiropractic uses both manual and Activator Methods to perform adjustments.

Compared to other common treatment options, such as habit forming prescription pain medication, chiropractic adjustments offer a safer and many times more effective outcome.
