Manipulation is the adjustment of bones to increase mobility and correct alignment. Naturopathic manipulation is one of naturopathic therapies that focuses on both muscle or soft tissue and bone alignment of the spine and other joints in order to move them from a restricted to a less restricted state. It is similar to chiropractic in that many of the same techniques are used, although the philosophy and practice of it varies on a few points.


The joints of the spine often get pulled out of alignment due to muscles that are tight or imbalanced or due to injuries and falls. Some of the most common conditions and symptoms that can benefit from naturopathic manipulation include:


  • Postural alignment
  • Decreases aches and pains
  • Speeds healing after injury
  • Increases range-of-motion
  • Increases relaxation
