Chiropractic adjustments or manipulations are the primary treatment used by chiropractors to relieve pain and improve joint function. Adjustments are typically performed by applying gentle pressure to the vertebrae or other bone structures. This procedure may result in an audible release of pressure from the joint. It is usually accomplished without significant discomfort, and can dramatically reduce or eliminate pain symptoms instantaneously.
