An adjustment is a highly-skilled and precise movement usually applied by hand to the vertebrae of the spine or other joints of the body. Adjustment to the joint helps restore proper movement and improves function caused by back pain. When a joint is adjusted, an air bubble may escape causing a popping noise, similar to when you crack your knuckles. Depending on the nature, of the problem, your chiropractor may utilize joint mobilization, muscle release technique, muscle stimulation and therapeutic exercises to relieve your pain and get you moving again.
