Main Content

What truly differentiates doctors of chiropractic from any other healthcare professionals is the fact that chiropractors are the only professionals who are trained to diagnose and treat spinal subluxations. The word “subluxation” comes from the Latin words meaning “somewhat or slight” (sub) and “to dislocate” (luxare). So the term “vertebral subluxation” literally means a slight dislocation or misalignment of the bones in the spine.

When a subluxation occurs, a chiropractor can correct the misaligned bone and allow it to return to its proper position. This procedure is appropriately called an adjustment, and the adjustment enables the body to heal. The chiropractic adjustment can be a quick thrust or a light sustained force applied to a vertebra for the purpose of correcting its position, movement, or both. Quick thrust adjustments are often accompanied by an audible release of gas that sounds like a “pop” similar to the sound of pulling on your finger. The sound sometimes shocks people a little bit the first couple times they get adjusted, but the sensation is usually pleasant and pain relieving. Occasionally, minor discomfort is experienced, especially if the surrounding muscles are in spasm or the patient tenses up during the chiropractic procedure.

The chiropractic adjustment allows the joint biomechanics to normalize, the nerve to work more effectively, and the muscles to function correctly. To maintain this improvement, several adjustments over a course of time may be necessary. In addition to an adjustment, specific soft tissue work, physical therapy, stretching exercises, or strengthening exercises may be added. In the chiropractic world, keeping the problem fixed and preventing its reoccurrence is just as important as the initial remedy. Following home recommendations is essential to maintaining and minimizing in-office care.

More and more scientific research is demonstrating the tremendously detrimental impact that subluxations have on the tissue of the body. In order to be truly healthy, it is vital that your nervous system be functioning free of interference from subluxations.

Chiropractors are the only health professionals trained in the detection, location, and correction of the vertebral subluxation complex through adjustments
