A chiropractic adjustment, also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation, is a common therapeutic treatment used in patient care. A chiropractic adjustment refers to a chiropractor applying manipulation to the vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally. The objective of this chiropractic treatment is to reduce the subluxation, with the goals of increasing range of motion, reducing nerve irritability and improving function. A chiropractic adjustment typically involves a high velocity, short-lever arm thrust applied to a vertebra; an accompanying, audible release of gas (joint cavitation) that is caused by the release of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide, which releases joint pressure (cavitation).
A Chiropractic adjustment is a relieving sensation most of the time, although minor discomfort has been reported (that usually lasts for a short-time period) if the surrounding muscles are in spasm or the patient tenses up during this chiropractic care.
The World Health Organization states that when "employed skillfully and appropriately, chiropractic care is safe and effective for the prevention and management of a number of health problems. As with all interventions, there are risks associated with spinal manipulative therapy (SMT). Common, but nonserious side effects include: discomfort, headache, and fatigue which will go away after 24 to 48 hours. Common side effects of spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) are characterized as mild to moderate and may include: local discomfort, headache, tiredness, or radiating discomfort.

Dr. Lott takes the time at each and every visit to truly listen to what I have to say so that he can provide the best treatment possible. I'm a trainwreck when it comes to multiple aches and pains and he always knows how to get me feeling great again either through chiropractic work or acupuncture (or sometimes both!) I've never been to a doctor that is as personable and easy to talk to as Seth Lott. His location is super convenient for me and I will definitely be back. Thanks for being awesome, Dr. Lott!
