What is chiropractic care?
The most common procedure performed by doctors of chiropractic is spinal manipulation.
This procedure is used to restore joint mobility by applying controlled force to joints that have become restricted in movement due to tissue injury. This injury may have been caused by a single event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stress, such as sitting with poor posture for an extended period of time.
Manipulation of the affected joint and tissues can restore mobility, alleviate pain and tightness, and allow the tissues to heal.
