What are Chiropractors trying to achieve when adjusting your spine?
Is it really repositioning a misaligned vertebrae? Not really. They are outdated concepts and the new science tells another story.
Chiropractors assess your spine to find spinal segments that have lost normal motion or have become stiff. Spinal adjustments result in measurably smoother movement – and quite significantly so. (The Spine Journal, 14(11), 2618-2627). This is important, as smooth motion is a pre-requisite for fine control. So it may be that spinal adjustments have an important role in restoring joint mobility and movement control.
