It's a therapeutic procedure (joint manipulation) where the force, the direction, the amplitude and the velocity are controlled. The goal is to restore and optimize joint mobility, alignment and physiology, and it can be done on the spine or any other joint in the body. Only the chiropractor has the proper training to perform with precision. A mild pressure or light discomfort can be felt during the manipulation, but usually, it is done pain-free.
