What is chiropractic manipulation?
Chiropractic manipulation, also known as spinal manipulation, is a technique involving the delivery of a high speed, low amplitude thrust usually to some part of the spinal column. The spinal column is also commonly called the backbone. This therapy is often used to treat and correct pain in the lower back. It is usually performed by hand after the chiropractor palpates the vertebrae to detect problems with alignment.
How is it performed?
Chiropractic manipulation can be performed using a handheld tool connected to a computer and used to scan the spine to diagnose any abnormalities in alignment. The purpose of chiropractic manipulation is to restore a joint’s range of motion to normal, because misalignment can interfere with a person’s ability to move.
