What is an adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is a specific force applied in a precise direction with the intention of improving spinal mobility. Think of a chiropractic adjustment as a gentle "nudge" to help restore proper movement to the spinal joints. The word "chiropractic" comes from the Greek meaning "done by hand", although there are many ways to adjust the spine.

Chiropractors may use their hands; or have the aid of special adjusting tables; or have you lie on pelvic blocks; or use specialised hand held instruments. Which technique is chosen is dependent on your individual circumstances - an elderly women, an elite footballer and a baby will obviously require very different approaches.

No matter which technique is chosen, all chiropractic treatments are non-invasive. In fact, the intent of chiropractic adjustments is NOT to treat a disease, or relieve pain, even though that's a great side-effect; but is actually to improve and restore spinal function, and reduce nerve interference.

After years of university training and clinical experience, each chiropractor becomes highly skilled in the delivery of a variety of adjusting approaches.
