The type of Chiropractic Adjustment we use in our Portland Oregon clinic is called diversified adjusting which is one of the original and most commonly used hands-on procedures to treat joint pain. Diversified adjusting is a gentle therapy using a quick thrust applied to the appropriate joint(s) and is typically accompanied by a "popping" sound. It is an extremely safe medical procedure compared to drugs and surgery. The patient will typically feel some immediate relief after the adjustment.

Restricted movement in a joint will lead to inflammation, pain and reduced function. Diversified adjustments are used to restore normal joint motion and function to restricted joints. A joint that moves normally acts like a “pump” by circulating nutrient rich fluid into the joint cartilage and pushing inflammatory waste products out. Restoring this “pump” mechanism will decrease pain and promote joint repair. Therefore, normal joint motion is essential for a healthy pain free joint. This medical procedure focuses on restoration of normal joint function and is beneficial in treating many types of injuries.
