Chiropractor and Patient — Chiropractic Care, Chiropractic Adjustment in Danville, VA
 
The most common therapeutic procedure performed by doctors of chiropractic is known as “spinal manipulation,” also called “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injuries can be caused by accidents, traumas, repetitive stresses, poor posture, improper lifting, and much more. In each case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for the sufferer. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.

Activator Methods:

Some patients are uncomfortable with the "twisting and popping" feel to traditional manual chiropractic adjustments. For those patients, the Activator Method of adjusting is a gentle, effective alternative. With this technique a small mechanical instrument is used to put a low-force impulse into a spinal joint.
