Many techniques: There are a variety of techniques utilized in chiropractic some are by hand, others with an instrument. The key to manual adjustments is speed, timing and short thrusts. While chiropractic is safer than aspirin, if you have concerns, let your chiropractor know. As they adjust necks all day long, they have dealt with someone who is not used to receiving adjustments yet. Try instrument adjustments.

Go for it: Why not! Just check with a few friends if they have a chiropractor they like. Should be OK for you.
