The chiropractic adjustment is a therapeutic manipulation that uses controlled force, leverage, direction, amplitude, and velocity directed at specific joints. In other words, an adjustment involves a lot more than simply opening up a joint. Chiropractic adjustment is a highly refined skill acquired during years of intensive training. To do that, CORE Health Centers’ chiropractor will apply pressure to the bone and unlock, or free, them from their improper position. The bone will then be free to align itself correctly. When a patient has a subluxation, chiropractic adjustment can be used to correct the misalignment, which in turn helps enhance joint mobility, reduce pain, reduce muscle spasm, and reduce nerve irritation or impingement. During chiropractic adjustment treatments, a relieving sensation is felt most of the time, although minor discomfort has been reported if the surrounding muscles are in spasm or the patient tenses up during this chiropractic care.

The Manual Adjustment involves using the hands to flex, mobilize, and/or adjust a spinal joint in order to correct any abnormalities in the joint and relieve pain, stiffness, swelling, or other symptoms.

This can result in tingling, stiffness, weakness, and pain throughout the back, shoulders, neck, arms, legs, and anywhere else on the body. By using manual adjustments, CORE Health Centers’ chiropractors can realigning the problematic vertebrae and help to put these symptoms to rest.

Logan basic technique is based on the theory that soft-tissue therapies, when applied with extremely light pressure, are more helpful in relaxing the tissues when compared to deeper pressures commonly used in other soft tissue therapies such as massage.
