Gentle Chiropractic Care
A chiropractic adjustment is the art of applying a specific force in a specific direction to a joint that is subluxated, “locked up,” or not moving properly.
The purpose of the adjustment is to eliminate nervous system interference and improve spinal function. Chiropractic adjustments can be delivered by hand or by using a instruments such as an Activator.
Adjustments may produce a sound, “crack” or “pop,” that is similar to cracking a knuckle. This sound is caused by gas escaping from the fluid surrounding the joint, when the joint is slightly separated. The sound is painless and totally harmless.
Adjustments shouldn’t be painful, however you may feel some discomfort until the pressure from the joint is relieved. The spinal adjustments given at Discover Chiropractic Center, PC are specifically designed for the individual patient’s comfort, tolerance, and safety. Dr. Lambert offers a variety of adjusting methods to provide you with a comfortable and pleasant chiropractic experience.
