The art of chiropractic is the adjustment. There are twenty-four movable bones in your spine that were specifically created so that you can move in all kinds of fun ways! They also serve to protect your spinal cord; the information highway from your brain to the rest of your body. If those bones are not moving correctly or are misaligned, irritation to the surrounding tissues can interrupt or agitate that information highway. That’s when the adjustment serves to restore function to your spine and, subsequently, function to your whole nervous system and to the rest of your body.
The chiropractor uses their hands as well as instruments and specially designed tables to deliver the adjustment. It is a unique vector of correction to a specific bone in your body. Each adjustment is different and is tailored to the person receiving it based on their size, age and health issue.
The adjustment is usually comfortable and elicits relaxation as pressure is relieved from the nervous system. Sometimes the tissue surrounding a misalignment is sore from inflammation and irritation and can feel tender. The experience of being adjusted is different for everyone. As stress and tension are immediately released after the adjustment, some will sigh, cry or laugh … others feel like taking a nap and some feel energized and creative.
