Adjusting by Hand
Also referred to as “Diversified Technique,” the process of manually adjusting the spine covers a broad range of disciplines within the chiropractic field. It is focused on removing spinal fixations to allow for proper joint motion and encourage proper spinal structure.
In general, manual adjusting is done through a series of fast, but low-impact adjustments. Through the use of various adjustment positions, fixations can be strategically addressed to realign only the areas that need correction.
The thrust delivered during the adjustment may produce a slight “popping” sound from the shifting of gas and fluids in the joint. This sound may be interesting, but it is not a guide as to the value or effectiveness of the adjustment. While improving spinal biomechanics can reduce nervous system interferences, virtually all joints of the body can be adjusted to help restore proper range of motion.
