What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
An adjustment involves a variety of techniques that depend on what type of injury is being treated. Some may involve a quick movement to correct an injury, others may involve gentle movements and soft tissue treatments to ease the bones back into place. Sometimes this will involve hands-on work from the chiropractor, some will involve use of an instrument called an activator. There are many different methods available to a chiropractor to correct a variety of injuries.
Are all patients treated with the same methods?
