Dr. Richard Hulse at Chiropractic Fitness in Erie, PA performing a chiropractic adjustment to give pain relief and healing to a patient.

The purpose of the “chiropractic adjustment” is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become restricted in movements as a result of a tissue injury.

Tissue injuries can be caused by improper lifting, repetitive stresses, and poor spinal posture. These injuries undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain and reduced function. Adjustments restore mobility-therefore, alleviating pain and allowing tissues to heal.

Dr. Richard Hulse is a graduate of the Palmer Institute for Chiropractic.  He is also a certified chiropractic sports physician who combines proven chiropractic care & contemporary sports medicine methods for rapid recovery and return to optimal health.
