Back Adjustment Sandy UtahThe purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by applying a controlled force into joints that are not moving correctly or restricted in their movement, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness to allow the tissues to heal.  Contrary to popular belief, spinal adjustments/manipulations are not painful. Chiropractors are trained as experts in the spine. They do not merely “pop” or “crack” bones until something “snaps” back into place.
