Adjustment vs manipulation

Manipulation vs adjustment.

Adjustments versus manipulation.

 I am often asked by a patient why the Gonstead type of adjustment works so much better than other techniques. The answer is actually quite simple, it has to do with definitions.

  An adjustment infers that a bone has been misaligned and needs to be put back in or at least toward the location from which it came.  This means did the bone slip right, left, backward, forward, wedge on the right or wedge on the left.

  The way that you verify this is the Gonstead Doctor puts his finger on the bone and moves it back and forth, up and down, right or left and decides which way the bone has shifted.
