cations) thereby removing the pres
sure, impignment or tension from the
nerves having their passage between,
through or around the structures sub-
luxated. The auhluxation is corrected
with the hands, using the bones o f the
body, more particularly the pteccsses
o f the vertebrae o f the spine, as levers
to which is applied a peculur adjuslic
