WAVE 2021: How Often to Adjust: Inflammation, Articular Movement and the Line-of-Drive for the Chiropractic Adjustment (Murphy, online 2021)

Overview

How frequently shall a chiropractor deliver an adjustment? Exploring the rationale for the frequency of the chiropractic adjustment for optimal clinical outcomes is paramount. This exploration must take into account inflammation, fibrosis, articular movement, and the line-of-drive. Before adjusting, one must fully understand the mechanical and pathoanatomical basis for the subluxation. Why does the subluxation exist? Only after answering this question can the application of the chiropractic adjustment be appreciated.
