CHIROPRACTIC CARE: This skilled joint mobilization and manipulation is an important part of a well-rounded
treatment protocol for many musculeskeletal conditions.

Joints in the neck, back and extremities are often "adjusted" to help restore normal range of motion and
decrease pain. Ideally, the patient is adjusted immediately after having moist heat with muscle stimulation
and therapeutic massage. At that time the patient is very relaxed and the muscles and soft tissues are
more supple, thereby providing less resistance to the joint mobilization efforts. A small explosion of gas
bubbles often goes off inside the joint when it is cavitated or spread apart during manipulation, producing
an audible "click" or "pop." The result is a reflexive relaxation of the muscles attached to the joint,
allowing it to move more fully, freely and with less pain.
