A neck adjustment (also known as cervical manipulation) is a specific procedure applied to the joints of the neck, usually by hand. A neck adjustment improves the mobility of the spine and helps to restore range of motion. It can also increase movement of the adjoining muscles.
Patients typically see an improvement in their ability to turn and tilt the head, and a reduction of pain, soreness, and stiffness. In addition to manipulation, the treatment plan may include mobilization, massage, therapeutic modalities or rehabilitative exercises.
