Spinal Manipulation

Spinal Manipulation is a therapeutic intervention employed by health professionals, primarily chiropractors and physical therapists, to alleviate back pain and restore function. It involves the application of controlled force on spinal joints that have become hypomobile or restricted in movement due to tissue injury.

The technique encompasses varying degrees of high-velocity, low-amplitude thrusts aimed at specific spinal segments. This manual procedure intends to enhance range of motion, reduce nerve irritability and improve body mechanics. Notably characterized by a “popping” sound, it elicits cavitation within the synovial fluid of the joint capsule.

Despite its noteworthy benefits, Spinal Manipulation requires meticulous execution due to potential risks such as vertebral artery dissection or cord compression. Its efficacy is subject to individual patient characteristics and condition severity; therefore, professional discretion is advised.
