What is an Adjustment?

An adjustment is a highly skilled and precise movement usually applied by hand to a joint of the body to help relieve pain and discomfort, and restore range of motion. Adjustment loosens the joint to restore proper movement and optimize function.

When a joint is adjusted, a gas bubble escapes causing the popping noise you may have heard about. Physiotherapy adjustment techniques have been researched extensively. Some techniques are used in back pain management while others address issues like calf pain associated with running.

When it comes to back-pain treatment, complications are rare and side-effects, such as temporary soreness, are usually minor. Your Physiotherapist is well-trained to determine if your problem will respond to Physiotherapy care or if you require referral to another health care provider.
