What is a manipulation, and will the doctor be cracking my spine?
Manipulation is a technique used to correct joint dysfunction. Joint dysfunction is a condition in which there is loss of normal movement of a joint. It is a common cause of spinal pain.Manipulation is exceedingly safe if provided by adequately trained practitioners. However many people are uncomfortable with the cracking that accompanies most manipulation. You may find that your complaint is related to your soft tissues e.g muscles and does not require a joint manipulation at all. However if it does, Dr. Mejias will perform a non cracking technique to effectively address your joint dysfunction complaints.
