Chiropractic and joint health

Chiropractic adjustments are intended to maintain health joint motion. Motion of the joints is essential to maintaining the health of the joint surfaces and connective tissues. Adhesions are scar tissue like tissues that limit the motion of the joints. Adhesions may be caused by injury or by immobilization. Untreated back injuries often result in reduced motion of the joints and the formation of adhesions. Immobilization of a joint causes dehydration of the linings of the joint and causing the linings of the joint to stick together. Chiropractic adjustments increase movement in dehydrated joints and help to release adhesions promoting joint health and movement.
