Spinal Manipulation Technique

Spinal manipulation is a technique where people apply controlled thrust to joints of the spine. The amount of force can vary, but the thrust moves the joint more than it would on its own. Spinal manipulation involves using your hands or a device to control the movement of these joints.



What is Spinal Manipulation?


The spinal manipulation technique, often referred to as a chiropractic adjustment, is standard chiropractic treatment for spinal pain. Inspine Chiropractors in Coquitlam and Port Moody perform this treatment by manipulating the vertebrae in the spine with abnormal movement patterns to function normally.


Spinal manipulation is a technique where chiropractors use their hands to apply a controlled thrust to a spinal joint. During your session, you may hear a popping sound, known as joint cavitation. It often occurs during chiropractic treatment due to gases from the joint's synovial fluid rapidly releasing, forming bubbles that cause the popping sound. If you hear this sound during your session, there is no need to worry.


The spinal manipulation technique is a standard manual therapy used by chiropractors to treat various musculoskeletal conditions. It aims to increase the range of motion, reduce nerve irritability, and improve function.
