The nature of the adjustment does relax the spine.
Yes. Your brain and nervous system control the muscles and their tension around the spine (including every other function in your body), and chiropractic adjustments help to relieve stress and tension in your brains d nervous system this relieving tension on the muscles and your spine (as well as tension all over your body).
When you receive a chiropractic adjustment a side effect is "resetting" certain receptors (GTO- Golgi tendon organs) throughout your back which can cause your back muscles to relax.
The adjustment can help relax the muscles that attach to the spine, but not the bones.
Yes, it will ease tension on the supporting musculature in and around the spine and take pressure off of the joint structures.
