A chiropractic adjustment is the gentle movement of the vertebrae in the spine. Adjustments restoreproper alignment. Vertebrae can move out place for a number of reasons ranging from simple activities of daily life to trauma such as a car accident.
Our body is designed in a bilateral (right/left) symmetrical fashion (think: eyes, ears, arms legs, etc.) The many muscles of the the back are no different. There is both a right and left Trapezius, Latissimus Dorsi, etc. (over 70 muscles are in the back alone!)
On the most simple level, when a vertebrae is misaligned, the skeletal musculature attached is also out of balance. An adjustment is made to restore alignment and balance.
Without proper alignment we can not function at our peak. With proper alignment our bodies are able to perform as they were designed.
Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to support the immune system, aid in stress relief and provide a host of other benefits.
