The intent of chiropractic care is to reduce joint pain and inflammation, and restore normal range of motion (ROM) and relax the muscles surrounding a joint complex. There are many varied techniques associated with chiropractic adjusting. The delivery of the adjustment may be by hand as in Diversified technique or assisted by instruments such as: Flexion and Distraction, Activator, Thompson Drop and S.O.T. Blocks.
