Chiropractors commonly use an adjusting style referred to as Diversified, where a specific manual thrust is administered to free up subluxated joints.

Spinal joints that have lost their normal movement or correct position, ie subluxated, are identified. Chiropractors use a special hand arrangement called a ‘pisiform contact’ to deliver a specific thrust at the right place and the right time. The direction, speed, depth and angle that are used are the result of a thorough understanding of spinal mechanics.

The energy delivered during the thrust may produce a slight “popping” sound from the shifting of gas and fluids in the joint. This sound may be interesting, but is not a guide as to the value or effectiveness of the adjustment.
