Chiropractic adjustments are used when a joint is put through a range of motion and a decrease in motion is felt. This could be due to a number of factors ranging from tight musculature to joint adhesions. This can occur when a joint does not go through its full range of motion throughout the day causing these “restrictions”. Also, joints get their nutrients from a process called diffusion which requires movement in order to help lubricate the joint.
