Spinal manipulation, also known as chiropractic adjustments, is a modality that has been shown to provide pain relief and improve function for certain musculoskeletal conditions. While it was previously believed that spinal adjustments “re-aligned” the spine, current research suggests that the mechanism of action may involve neurophysiological effects, such as pain modulation and improved joint mobility.
Through gentle and precise techniques, the chiropractor will apply controlled force to specific areas of the spine and joints. This helps to reduce pain, enhance joint mobility, and restore proper function. The effectiveness of spinal manipulation has been supported by numerous studies and clinical trials.
