The term “Chiropractic Adjustment” refers to the specific technique chiropractors apply to vertebrae and spinal joints that have abnormal movement patterns. Due to a sedentary lifestyle, injury or stress, spinal joints may lose their normal motion. As a result, inflammation and muscle tightness surrounding joint may eventually become noticeable. In severe cases, the vertebral discs may become inflamed or even degenerative. Furthermore, disc inflammation may put pressure on the nerve as a result. The objective of the chiropractic treatment is to reduce the fixation, hence restoring normal motion. In addition, chiropractic adjustments often reduce nerve irritability and improve function.
