How is a chiropractic adjustment performed?
Chiropractic adjustment or manipulation is a procedure that utilizes the highly refined skills developed during the intensive years of chiropractic education. The doctor of chiropractic typically uses an instrument and/or their hands to manipulate the joints of the body, particularly the spine, in order to reduce pain, and restore or enhance joint function. Chiropractic manipulation is a highly controlled procedure that rarely causes discomfort. The doctor of chiropractic adapts the procedure to meet the specific needs of each patient. Patients often note positive changes in their symptoms immediately following treatment.

Is it safe?
Chiropractic treatments are incredibly safe. Actually, they're one of the safest kinds of medical care available, and doctors of chiropractic have studied extensively to fully understand the body's systems.
At the office of Dr. Dorothy Brolin the emphasis is on gentle, effective treatments, including spinal manipulation, physical therapy and rehabilitation, to get to the source of the problem and remedy it.
