What Is A Chiropractic Adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is also known as a chiropractic manipulation or spinal manipulation. This is just one of several manual treatment options our WIN Chiropractors utilize in their treatment plans.

During a chiropractic adjustment, your WIN Chiropractor will place their hands on an area of your spine to isolate a misaligned or “locked” section.

They are professionally trained to apply a quick thrust to help restore this areas movement pattern and function.

The benefits of a Chiropractic adjustment include improved range of motion as well as reduced muscle tension and pain. Chiropractic adjustments also have a balancing effect on the nervous system.


A chiropractic neck adjustment is spinal manipulation of the first seven vertebrae which make up the cervical spine. A neck adjustment can be performed with the patient lying on their back, stomach, or in a seated position.

A chiropractic back adjustment is spinal manipulation of the thoracic spine (middle back) or lumbar spine (low back). This can be performed with the patient in a seated position, on their back, or lying on their side.  


A chiropractic adjustment can help address health concerns related to the muscles, the bones and the joints and associated nervous system.  Chiropractic adjustments at WIN Health are always individualized to the patient to help alleviate pain, improve mobility and restore functional ability in the body.


A chiropractic adjustment can help alleviate many concerns you may be struggling with.  If you have joint pain, low back or neck pain, sciatica, headaches, sprains & strains, joint disfunction, nerve degeneration, nerve entrapment, whiplash, wrist or elbow pain or pain at any spot in your legs (knees, ankles, foot) and much more.  A chiropractic adjustment can help if you’ve have a specific injury or ongoing health issue.  It can be part of your complete treatment plan at WIN Health.


Chiropractic adjustments are safe. Prior to beginning your treatment, your WIN chiropractor will take a thorough health history wth you, and do a physical examination to determine a suitable treatment plan for your condition.  Along with this, your chiropractor will always discuss any risks that may be associated with treatment and answer any questions you may have. We will always make sure that you are comfortable with all aspects of your treatment as this will lead to the best outcomes.

What Does A Chiropractor Do


The frequency of your visits and how often you may need an adjustment really does come down to you: your health concern, your individualized plan and your overall state of health.  Our WIN Chiropractor will alway assess your need with each visit and will share with you the treatment plan so you understand how often you will benefit from a chiropractic adjustment.

See How We Work

Our Chiropractic Procedures


We will discuss your musculoskeletal health concerns and find out what obstacles are part of what you are experiencing. For example, what may have caused this in your everyday life, or if you had an injury.  We will talk about what makes your symptoms better or worse.  We will also talk with you about other factors that may be contributing to the concern, like previous injuries, surgeries, medications or trauma.


We will assess your movements and any limitations you have.  We will use specific testing to find out what part of your anatomy is not working properly.  These movement assessments are an important part of our approach. They help us determine which chiropractic therapies would work best for your situation.


You will receive an individualized treatment plan that is the best fit for you.  Chiropractic treatments aim to improve the function of an area of the body so you can move better and feel great.  We will work with you to provide an understanding about the goals of your treatment, the area it is helping and what benefits to expect.  We will guide you along your path to better health so you can reach your health goals.
