Chiropractic comes from the Greek meaning “done by hand,” and was originally the only way the adjustments were done, but today we use a range of different techniques to do our adjustments. Some are done by using an instrument called an activator, sometimes we’ll use blocks under your pelvis, sometimes we use a slight finger pressure and others times our hands.
The adjustment is performed with a highly skilled and experienced chiropractor with the right direction, speed, depth and angle of the thrust. The intent of the adjustment is not to treat the symptom but to restore function of the spine.
