Chiropractic Adjustment: Century Wellness Clinic

Chiropractor adjustment is a procedure in which trained specialists (chiropractors) use their hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled, gentle force to a spinal joint.

Our bodies rely and depend on the balance, strength, and flexibility of our spinal system. The spinal system, connecting from our head all the way down to our lower back, houses important nervous and circulatory systems. Imbalances of the spinal system can be caused by repetitive daily activities or from previous trauma. Imbalances and misalignment of this delicate system can cause pain, numbness, and discomfort, and if left uncorrected these conditions could compromise normal body function and lead to chronic problems.

Chiropractor adjustments or realignment differs from general mobilization and can be effective in ensuring proper nervous system function.
