"A Chiropractic Adjustment, also known as a Chiropractic Manipulation, Manual Manipulation, or Spinal Manipulation, is a common therapeutic treatment for joint pain. A Chiropractic Adjustment refers to a Chiropractor applying manipulation to the vertebrae, or other bone, that have abnormal movement patterns, or are failing to function normally. The goal of a Chiropractic adjustment is to increase the range of motion of the targeted joint (or "restricted" joint), which can reduce nerve irritability, decrease muscle spasm, improve function, increase motion and reduce pain.
A Chiropractic Adjustment typically involves a quick push using either the Chiropractors hand or a specially built tool with the intent to cause a restoration of normal movement within the joint. This will typically include a sensation of relief. An accompanying, sometimes audible, release of release of naturally occurring gases within the joint may create a "pop" sound. This is purely a phenomena of the fluids within a joint, part of the field of hydrodynamics called a cavitation. Hearing a "pop" does not indicate that the adjustment did or did not restore function to the targeted joint, it simply means that natural gases within the joint were compressed."
