Chiropractic adjustments are therapeutic treatments performed by a licensed chiropractor. Chiropractic care complements other modalities to create a complete treatment strategy.
A chiropractic adjustment is a therapeutic treatment in which a licensed chiropractor manipulates joints in your body with their hands or special instruments.
