How do Chiropractic Adjustments Work? 

An adjustment from a chiropractor typically consists of:

  • A short lever arm thrust that is applied to a vertebra
  • An audible release of gas that results from a release of carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and oxygen that releases pressure in the joints
  • A sensation of relief throughout the body

Chiropractic techniques that are used by our chiropractor include high velocity and low amplitude adjustments. Our chiropractor will assess your musculoskeletal system to determine the chiropractic adjustments that will benefit you the most.
