Spinal manipulation can be beneficial in not only restoring motion and reducing restrictions but also in reducing pain by allowing the body to function properly.
Manual adjustments generally are used to increase motion in otherwise restricted joints or to improve the alignment of a joint. Instrument adjustments can also help improve motion and position but can also be used on acupressure/acupuncture points or to improve nerve function and decrease stress. The only way to know if a person will benefit is to see a qualified Chiropractor and have an assessment. All the best.
