Vertebral adjustment uses a very specific, controlled force in one direction applied to a vertebra that allows the patient's body to use this force to make its own correction.
This procedure improves vertebral mechanics, restores a normal transmission of the nervous influx in quantity and quality, and improves health.
Only a specific and precise adjustment can correct subluxation (vertebral misalignment) and eliminate neurological interference and help the body to self-heal. Massages, heat ointments, certain rehabilitation exercises, yoga, gymnastics, although possibly useful, cannot specifically correct vertebral subluxation.
Adjustment or alignment should not be confused with manipulation or any other alternative mobilization or massage therapy.
