I don’t want to be adjusted. Is this a necessary part of the treatment?

Although high velocity low amplitude (HVLA) manipulation (aka chiropractic adjustment) is most commonly used by chiropractors, mobilization (gentle movements of the joint) have been shown to be just as effective. Additionally, for some conditions treated by the chiropractor, adjustments are not appropriate. A custom treatment plan will be developed based on: the examination, current evidence based guidelines, anecdotal evidence, and the patient preferences.
