Chiropractic Adjustment is….
A Chiropractic adjustment is one of the main tools used by a practitioner to treat a client. An Adjustment is a procedure in which a joint is taken to its end range of motion and a fast-deliberate thrust is put into the joint causing it to release which may or may not result in an audible pop. The goal of this procedure is to improve range of motion, decrease pain and improve your body’s physical function. An adjustment can be performed on both Spinal and Extremity joints.
Treatment is rendered through a hands-on approach to restoring, maintaining and optimizing your quality of life.

What You Can Expect
Orthopedic and Functional Assessment
This is where we gather information about an injury or chronic pain to develop a clinical impression of what the injury is.
Your Chiropractor will ask a series of directed questions to develop a mechanism of injury and to get a general idea of what body part has been injured. General health care, work and/or sport related questions will also be included.
Your Chiropractor will observe you in a normal standing posture to gather visual cues about any defects, abnormalities, or malalignments of the structures involved. GAIT and biomechanical evaluations are done as required.
This is a hands-on assessment of the injured and surrounding area. It involves a bilateral comparison to the uninjured side. Your Chiropractor will use specifically designed tests to determine abnormalities or pathologies in muscles, tendon, ligaments, nerves, and bones.
Our Chiropractor will develop an individualized, injury specific rehabilitation program for you that will:
- Facilitate quick (within reason) yet effective recovery from injury
- Include exercises and stretches in order to re-develop and maintain mobility
Build functional strength to normalize imbalances and restore function. Help prevent future injury!
