An adjustment is a gentle correction, using the hand, table or spring loaded instrument, made to a joint in a specific area. Most commonly the spine is where adjustments are performed, but they can be performed to other areas, such as; extremities, TMJ, etc. The adjustment is a high velocity, low force thrust performed with the hands or spring loaded instrument to the misaligned vertebra or fixated joint. It can be slightly ucomfortable, but patients have said that they would NOT describe the experience as painful. Many people even describe the experience as enjoyable!
