How does a Chiropractor "Adjust" my spine?

Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.
Hippocrates

An adjustment is the specific manipulation of vertebrae which have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally within the nervous system and interfere with normal nerve supply. Chiropractors spend countless hours learning the art of examining by movement and touch and special spinal examining procedures in order to administer a specific spinal adjustment. The adjustment is usually given by hand. It consists of placing the patient on a specially designed adjusting table and applying pressure, using specialized techniques, to the areas of the spine that are out of proper alignment or that do not move properly within their normal range of motion. The experience of your doctor in manipulative procedures will determine the types of adjustment and the frequency with which you will be adjusted.
