The most significant and important aspect of chiropractic treatment is the spinal adjustment. Why is a chiropractic adjustment so significant? It helps prevent and/or reduce the wear and tear that our joints and ligaments are exposed to every day without invasive surgery! When the spine is in the proper functional position, the joints and ligaments operate as designed with fluid motion.

Typically, the chiropractic adjustment is still performed using a hands-on procedurfe. However, there are many other different types of chiropractic procedures, some using specifically designed instruments and/or tables. As necessary, other joints of the body can also be adjusted along with the spine with effectiveness, including the shoulders, elbows, hands, hips, knees, ankles, feet, jaw, and even the head.

Before a chiropractic adjustment is performed, the doctor of chiropractic follows a basic procedure to know the why, the how, the when, and the type of adjustment that should be made for maximum effectiveness, including:

>Visual inspection and palpation.
>Patient's range of motion.
>Touching and feeling (palpation) for areas of swelling and increased temperature.
>Abnormal muscle tone or spasm.
>Reviewed x-rays.

The particular chiropractic adjustment recommended for patients should be designed for their specific health needs.
