WHAT IS SPINAL MANIPULATION THERAPY?
Spinal manipulative therapy “adjustment” involves the manual use of hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled movement or gentle force to a joint, resulting in mobilization of the joint and a stretch of surrounding muscles and ligaments.
Spinal manipulation therapy may be accompanied by an audible “pop.” This is gas being released from joint fluids by a quick drop in pressure. This gas suddenly joins into small bubbles, making a popping sound. It is not always necessary to hear the audible pop to be effective.
