Spinal adjustment is the chiropractic term for a procedure that has the intention to affect or correct the alignment, motion and/or function of a vertebral subluxation (misaligned or locked vertebrae). Sometimes people refer to this as a "pinched nerve". With the intent of reducing nervous system irritation, chiropractic adjustments are specific, targeted and focused. And they are more precise than general "mobilization". It is this precision, combined with the purpose of reducing spinal nerve stress, which has helped so many people.
The classic chiropratic technique. Uses specific manual thrusts focused on restoring normal biomechanical function.
Uses a prescision table which holds the patient in the "up" postion before the thrust is given.
Instrument: Often the gentlest method. The patient lies on the table face down while the chiropractor uses the adjusting instrument to perform the adjustment.
