What Really IS an Adjustment
Oh my goodness.
I hear some crazy things when people talk about what a chiropractic adjustment does, so let’s get a few things straight.
Adjustments are performed using the hands or a small tool to apply a painless and precise movement to the spine, also known as an activator.
So all we’re doing is realigning the spine to allow clear communication between the brain and the nervous system.
The nervous system runs through our spine, and it’s connected to everything in the body, which helps the brain control everything we do and what we feel.
So when the spine is misaligned, the brain can’t communicate, and we end up with some kind of problem like daily pain, headaches, lack of sleep, stress, anxiety, digestion issues, and so much more.
So adjustments restore communication, which allows the body to respond to life on a physical, chemical, and emotional level.
So basically, adjustments allow the brain to communicate with the body so that the body can take care of itself.
