Chiropractic adjustment

Chiropractic adjustment, sometimes referred to as spinal manipulation, is a method by which a joint is adjusted in order to enhance its otherwise limited range of motion.

Chiropractic Adjustment Certification And Licensing

Because of the delicate nature of chiropractic adjustments, it is highly recommended that an individual receiving this type of chiropractic care seek out a licensed and accredited chiropractor. In the U.S., chiropractors are required to complete a four to five year course of advanced study from one of 15 chiropractic colleges accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education. The CCE is recognized by the US Government as the accrediting body for chiropractic colleges. Spinal adjustments are typically taught during the final two years of classroom and lab study, which focus on evaluations, diagnoses and other clinical protocol.
