The Nature of Chiropractic Care
An adjustment is the primary therapeutic tool used by chiropractors. It is a controlled force applied to an affected joint of the spine or extremity. The purpose of this is to influence the motion and neurological function of the joint. The adjustment or manipulation can be performed with many different techniques to best suit the patient. At Mountain View Pain Center our doctors have treated patients from as young as a few days old, to patients in their 100’s.
