Thrust technique is a specific chiropractic practice employed to induce joint movements. Characterized by a rapid, short lever arm thrust applied to a vertebra, it aims at improving functionality and reducing subluxations. The high-velocity, low-amplitude (HVLA) maneuver is distinguished by its swift application with controlled force.

This hands-on approach primarily targets the spinal area but may also be used on other joints in the body. The thrust technique can alleviate pain, improve motion range and rectify biomechanical deficiencies. Despite its vigorous nature, it is deemed safe when executed by trained professionals.

While the effectiveness of this technique varies among individuals, research ascertains its value in managing certain musculoskeletal conditions. Notably for lower back pain and neck discomfort where it has shown promising outcomes.
