How Do Chiropractors Know Where To Adjust?
Years of training, including spinal palpation classes where we learn how to properly feel the anatomy of the spine on a person. Over the years, we develop a feel for changes in muscle tone and mobility between the joints and the spine. Some tools we use are static palpation which is just feeling the muscles and spine, and motion palpation where we actually put motion into the spine and see if it’s restricted in one range or the other. A lot of it is just years of feeling and being able to tell the difference between a segment that is moving properly and one that is not.
