Spinal manipulation is a high velocity low amplitude technique utilized by physical therapists, chiropractors and D.O.s. It has been shown to be effective in decreasing pain, muscle tightness or spasms as well as improving range of motion. A “popping” sound, or joint cavitation, is typically associated with an effective manipulation.
