Adjustments and Mobilisation

Chiropractic treatment aims to restore mobility to stiff joints. This is mainly achieved through the use of:

  • Adjustments
  • Mobilisation

 

Adjustments

To encourage the joint to move properly a targeted, quick, firm pressure is applied directly to the affected area. This has two benefits: firstly, to free the joint restriction and secondly, to reinstate proper nerve signalling to the brain. At Aligned For Life we typically use either our hands or the activator to do this.

Adjusting requires a high degree of skill and is one of the primary techniques that differentiate chiropractors from other practitioners.

 

Mobilisation

In the few situations where adjusting may not be appropriate, a manipulation is performed. These provide a gentler and more generalised stretch of the joint and surrounding muscles.
