What is Chiropractic Manipulation?
Explained simply, a spinal adjustment is the process whereby a chiropractor carefully applies pressure to parts of the spine and pelvis to correct spinal subluxations and realign the spine into the proper positions.When a vertebrae is even slightly out of alignment, it can lead to pain, inflammation, and could even lead to nerve irritation, making your life less than enjoyable and at the same time keep you from doing what you love to do.
Benfits of the spinal adjustment are increased mobility and flexibility of the spine, reduced pain and joint fixation, and improved nerve function in the body.

What is the PCS Approach to Chiropractic Manipulation?
Once a patient is aware of his/her treatment options and has agreed upon a treatment plan, there will be a fifteen-minute session used for chiropractic manipulation. However, PCS does not want this to be your only option for chiropractic treatment. The objective of this chiropractic treatment is to reduce the subluxation, which results in an increased range of motion, reduced nerve irritability and improved function.
