What is the chiropractic adjustment?

According to the ICA (International Chiropractic Association) the chiropractic spinal adjustment is “unique and singular to the chiropractic profession.” The chiropractic adjustment is a “specific directional thrust that sets a vertebra into motion with the intent to improve or correct vertebral malposition or to improve its juxtaposition segmentally, in relationship to its articular mates thus reducing or correcting the neuroforaminal / neural canal encroachment factors inherent in the chiropractic vertebral subluxation complex”. That may sound like a lot, but it explains how powerful a toll the adjustment is when performed by a Doctor of Chiropractic. Dr. Mahler has over a decade of experience in providing the correct and appropriate adjustment to his patients.

The adjustment is characterized by a specific thrust applied to the vertebra utilizing parts of the vertebra and contiguous structures as levers to directionally correct articular malposition. Adjustment shall be differentiated from spinal manipulation in that the adjustment can only be applied to a vertebral malposition with the express intent to improve or correct the subluxation, whereas any joint, subluxated or not, may be manipulated to mobilize the joint or to put the joint through its range of motion.

Chiropractic is a specialized field in the healing arts, and by prior rights, the spinal adjustment is distinct and singular to the chiropractic profession. Only Chiropractors are licensed to perform a chiropractic adjustment, so call us at Mahler Family Chiropractic Center to get started today.
