Chiropractic manipulation aka Adjustments are a way of aligning the joints of the body (spine, hips, knees, wrists, etc). A joint complex (muscles, bones, ligaments and tendons) that do not exhibit an adequate range of motion also experience altered neurologic integrity, decreased muscular function, weakness, decreased blood circulation and are physiologically changed for the worse. Adjustments restore proper range of motion and thus allow the body to function at its optimal state by restoring the motion.
