The foundation of what we do at Iowa Back Pain Center is joint manipulation. The purpose of joint manipulation is to restore lost motion in joint segments, otherwise known as joint blockage. After a proper joint assessment, otherwise known as palpation, we determine where the joint blockages are located throughout the body and restore that motion using joint manipulation, otherwise known as the adjustment. At the Iowa Back Pain Center our doctors have a very strong background in the Motion Palpation Institute, a national organization that strives to teach doctors and students how to be the best palpaters and adjustors in the world.
