An adjustment is a painless, quick, high velocity low amplitude thrust through a joint in order to restore it to its normal function. This thrust is often accompanied by a “popping” or “cracking” sound which is simply the release of trapped gas in the joint. An added benefit of the adjustment is the release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain killers. Chiropractic manipulations have been shown to be safe and effective for most types of back and neck pain.
