A neck adjustment is usually done with you lying on your back.
The doctor places his/her hands behind your neck and gently puts the bone in the correct position.
Watch this video for a demonstration of what follows a cervical adjustment at Napoli Chiropractic Clinic.
Another thing we do at Napoli Chiropractic Center, after a cervical adjustment, we like to work the muscles that support the cervical spine so they don’t move the vertebrae back to where we just moved them from. A lot of people tighten up. So, what we do is gently get in and do a deep massage but only to the tolerance to the patient.
This works in the sense that it relaxes the muscles that people just tightened up and reduces the amount of spasms in the neck if they came in from a car accident, a trip or fall, or even from the tensions of normal everyday life. We dig this out and it relaxes the patients and removes headaches immediately.
