Chiropractic Adjustments

Adjustment_2.jpg Adjustments, or manipulation as they're sometimes referred to is the minor movement of vertebrae in the spine or extremities. The objective of this movement is to realign vertebrae or joints that have moved out of place for a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activity to trauma such as a car accident or sports injury.

When these vertebrae are out of place, it has an overall systemic effect from muscular to the central nervous system. Without proper alignment and flow of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, we can't function at our peak.

An adjustment is often a pressure from the chiropractor utilizing the hands to move a vertebrae back into place. Dr. Thomas applies precisely directed force to a joint often without discomfort. You may hear a noise that sounds like you're cracking your knuckles referred to as joint cavitation. It is the release of gases such as oxygen and nitrogen from the joint.

Overall, adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its optimal level. When the body is in alignment, the body is able to respond and perform as it was designed to.
