It has to be the most frequently asked question about chiropractic adjustment: What’s that popping sound?
The American Chiropractic Association explains, "Adjustment (or manipulation) of a joint may result in the release of a gas bubble between the joints, which makes a popping sound. The same thing occurs when you “crack” your knuckles. The noise is caused by the change of pressure within the joint, which results in gas bubbles being released. There is usually minimal, if any, discomfort involved."
No worries -- we're not breaking anything!
We’re adjusting, using firm, gentle, manual pressure to restore proper structure and function to the spine. And it’s not just about the spine! Chiropractors adjust every joint – wrists for carpal tunnel syndrome, elbows, shoulders, ankles and knees, just to name a few. Chiropractic care is commonly used by athletes, dancers, gardeners and others engaged in daily physical activity.
We’re here for you :)
