Chiropractors used to be called quack doctors because people didn’t believe in the work that they did. However, over time, the profession has earned respect and recognition for the skill that chiropractors have to have in order to help their patients.

It’s more than just shifting joints that they do. A chiropractic doctor is looking at palpating muscles and joints to make sure that they are feeling for knots in the muscles and a springiness in the joints.

If a muscle has a knot, they may massage the knot out. If there is a joint that seems to have some stiffness, then they may adjust that joint as well as massage the muscle. The goal is to reopen joint spaces with precise pressure and experienced palpation.

Adjustments are enhancing movement and neurological reflexes. Patients are usually going to feel a better sense of coordination thanks to the experience and skill of a learned doctor. Keep in mind that they are not putting bones back into place, but working with the joint and the muscle. There are different techniques and skills that each chiropractor learns to adjust the patient. Over time those skills are going to get better and more practiced. For more information, take a look at the video above!
