What Is Spinal Adjustment?
Chiropractic adjustment is a procedure in which trained experts (chiropractors) apply controlled sudden power to the back joint using their hands or a small tool. The aim of this procedure is to improve the spinal movements and the physical function of your body.
There are many different spinal adjustment methods. Some of them include:
Toggle Drop – This is when the chiropractor presses firmly down on a particular area of the spine using crossed hands. The chiropractor then adjusts the spine with a quick and precise thrust. This is done to improve mobility in the vertebral joints.
Lumbar Roll (aka side posture) – The chiropractor places the patient on his or her side, then places his or her Hans in the proper position by applying a fast and accurate manipulation thrust to the misaligned spinal cord.
Release Work – To separate the vertebras, a chiropractor puts gentle pressure on you with his fingertips.
Table adjustments – The patient is lying on a special table with dropping sections. The chiropractor applies a quick thrust at the same time that the section drops. The dropping of the table allows a lighter adjustment without the twisting positions that may accompany other techniques.
Instrument adjustments – Often the gentlest spine adjustment method. The patient lies face down on the table while a spring-loaded activator instrument is used by the chiropractor to make the adjustment. This technique is also often used to make animal adjustments.
The effects of spinal adjustment change depending on the method performed. Mostly all the effects of spinal adjustment are similar to other therapies, ranging from decreased muscle tension to reduced stress
