Chiropractic adjustment or manipulation is a manual procedure that utilizes the highly refined skills developed during four intensive years of chiropractic education. The chiropractor typically uses his/her hands to manipulate the joints of the body, particularly the spine, in order to reduce pain, and restore or enhance joint function.

Chiropractic manipulation is a highly controlled procedure that rarely causes discomfort. The chiropractor adapts the procedure to meet the specific needs of each patient. Patients often note positive changes in their symptoms immediately following treatment.

Over the years, spinal manipulation, which is also referred to as adjustment, has undergone rigorous evaluation from researchers within the profession itself, and from the legislative, health care and scientific communities resulting in a significant body of evidence around the efficacy of spinal manipulation for musculoskeletal disorders such as back pain, neck pain and headache.
