An adjustment is a highly skilled and precise movement applied by hand to a joint of the body. While Chiropractors are commonly known for adjusting joints of the spine, an adjustment can also be done for joints of the upper and lower extremities. When indicated, an adjustment is an extremely effective treatment for restoring proper movement to an irritated, restricted or dysfunctional joint. The pain relieving benefits of the adjustment are related to:

-Releasing pinched joint capsules

-Reflexively relaxing tight muscles

-Breaking down adhesions (scarring) in and around the joint

-Moving mechanically locked joint segments
