This is the most common form of chiropractic adjustment, and one of the techniques used at Body Logic Massage and Chiropractic.  This is a hands-on technique designed to restore proper joint motion, stretch muscles in the area, and regulate stimulation to the nervous system by quickly applying a small amount of force to the joint.  This technique often produces a “popping” or “cracking” sound which is commonly associated with chiropractic treatment as pressure is released from the joint as it is adjusted.
