An adjustment or manipulation is a high velocity, low amplitude force that is specifically applied to a joint to improve the joint's range of motion. This improved neurologic, physiologic, and biomechanical function of the joint.

Yes, it is safe! Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuromuskuloskeletal complaints. Chiropractic has an excellent safety record. Many patients feel immediate relief following a treatment, but some may experience mild soreness or aching, just as they do after some forms of exercise. It has less side effects, better outcomes, higher patient satisfaction, and costs less than medication, physical therapy, and surgical options.

What is that "crack/pop" you hear?

When the impulse is applied to the joint, the joint quickly gaps creating a space. The space is then filled with nitrogen gas creating the "pop". Nothing is actually breaking, dislocating, or going back into place.
