A Closer Look at Chiropractic Techniques: Finding the Right Adjustments for You

What happens during a Chiropractic Adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is a specific spinal manipulation technique a chiropractor uses on the vertebrae to treat unusual joint placement or subluxation. It involves the use of hands-on manipulation along with other alternative therapies.

An adjustment is a highly skilled and accurate movement that is intended to enhance joint function. It aids in reducing discomfort and restoring the body’s regular motion which allows us to enjoy our daily activities. Adjustments aid in restoring a joint’s proper range of motion. The internal pressure of a joint is relieved during adjustment. In the process, a cracking sound may be heard.

To successfully restore proper alignment and functionality throughout the linkages of those sections in the spine, chiropractic care may be required. I can provide a treatment plan that is tailored to your unique requirements. Joint mobilization, muscle relaxation, muscle stimulation, and therapeutic exercises are all used in chiropractic methods. Depending on the requirements of each patient, specific therapies may change. Each method has a distinct process for returning the spine to its typical function.


Adjustment characteristics include:

  • A specific form of joint manipulation
  • Involves long or short leverage techniques.
  • Low amplitude dynamic thrust of controlled direction and velocity
  • Audible articular crack

Your back can be adjusted by a chiropractor in a variety of ways. The spine or other joints won’t be adjusted unless you’ve given a thorough medical history and received a diagnosis from a chiropractor. To establish the best course of action, a chiropractor may request X-rays or other tests. 

A chiropractor would often adjust your back by applying a precise, controlled amount of force on specific spinal segments of your back. This can be carried out either manually by the chiropractor or with the aid of tools designed specifically for spinal adjustments. 


Both specific and general spinal adjustments are techniques that you should be familiar with:

  • Specific Adjustments: These methods consist of actions that exert tension on each joint or articulation separately. They involve using short leverage transactions, among other things. The predetermined modifications precisely work with the injured joint.
  • General Adjustment: These methods use procedures that are thought to have broader cross-sectional contacts. They are efficient in mobilizing multiple joints at once. Multiple contacts are connected to general modifications.

In conclusion, here at Kenzie Wellness Centre we offer personalized chiropractic care to help you find the right adjustments for your specific needs.
