Types of Chiropractic ManipulationThere are two general chiropractic manipulation approaches for cervical spine complaints:
- Cervical spinal manipulation - often thought of as the traditional chiropractic adjustment, or a high-velocity, low-amplitude (HVLA) technique
- Cervical spinal mobilization - which is a more gentle/less forceful adjustment, or a low-velocity, low-amplitude (LVLA) technique moving the joint through a tolerable range of motion.
