What are the benefits of adjustments?

Simply put, following an adjustment patients most often experience: 

  • Decrease in pain

  • Improvement of movement

  • Relaxation of muscle tension

 

These changes translate to improved biomechanics, which can help treat and prevent injuries.

The most notable effect is the relief of pain and tension without the use of medication or surgery. For example, the American Pain Society and the American College of Physicians published guidelines in 2007 recommending manipulation (adjustments) as treatment for acute and chronic low back pain.
