Downtown Toronto Chiropractic Adjustments
Our chiropractors are extremely skilled at adjustments or manipulations. This treatment has been used for centuries in healing arts and has become synonymous with chiropractic treatment. This treatment is done by hand on joints of the body, predominately the spine. It involves moving the joint beyond its passive range of motion by applying a high velocity thrust, and is usually accompanied by an audible click. The clicking sound is analogous to opening a can of pop, in that the compressed gasses that help nourish the joints are able to escape.
A chiropractic adjustment, also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation, is a common therapeutic treatment for lower back pain.
A chiropractic adjustment refers to a chiropractor applying manipulation to the vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally.
The objective of this chiropractic treatment is to reduce the subluxation, with the goals of increasing range of motion, reducing nerve irritability and improving function. See Understanding Spinal Manipulation at SpinHealth.com
