About Cervical Manipulation
Chiropractic adjustments are a fairly common course of treatment for a variety of issues experienced by patients. Regular adjustment can help relieve pain and even claims to help with issues such as joint motion and coordination, poor posture, and even physical function and performance. During an adjustment, a chiropractor will use specific, precise force to help normalize spine function by placing pressure on joints that are not moving properly.
Cervical Manipulation Injuries
Cervical manipulation can help relieve some physical issues, but it can also have dire consequences if not performed properly. These issues include:
- Artery dissection
- Brain stem and PICA tears
- Severe dural tears
