Manipulation aims to simply restore motion to Restricted joints

 

Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, and the effects these disorders have on health and movement. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat complaints such as back pain, neck pain, and pain in the joints of the extremities.  The most common therapeutic procedure performed by Doctors of Chiropractic is known as “spinal manipulation,” or the “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility to joints that have become restricted in their movement as a result of a tissue injury.
