What Is An Adjustment?
What is an Adjustment?
Chiropractic adjustments use gentle, specific forces to normalize spinal function.
In our office these adjustments consist of gentle, manual re-alignments, joint mobilisation and stabilisation exercise and very importantly, traction (gentle stretching) to ensure that the spine returns to a more perfect shape.
The amount of force is varied depending on the age and presentation of the client. Obviously a baby or an elderly person will be adjusted very gently indeed.
“Try and always remember that the structure decides the function and if we improve the structure then function will virtually always improve”
– Dr Tim Errington
The spinal cord is protected by 24 bones and if these bones lose their normal position or motion, delicate nerve tissues can be affected. Once these interferences have been removed, both the spine and the nervous system will work better allowing health to return as the body regains control and becomes able to use its own inborn healing abilities.
