What is that popping noise?


There is a common misconception that the pop you here during a chiropractic adjustment is coming from the bones. The noise is actually just a gas bubble forming as a joint is moved. Joints are surrounded by a capsule with fluid inside. As the joint is stretched this tension causes dissolved gas to form a bubble and make that satisfying pop noise. This phenomenon is the same reason we can crack our knuckles. When performed in the spine it can decrease soreness, relax muscles, and create a pain free window where rehab exercises can be performed.


How often should I get adjusted?


This will depend on the condition the chiropractor is treating you for. Some conditions can heal very quickly and others take time. For instance, a rib dysfunction may take only a single adjustment, whereas an irritated spinal disc may take several weeks to heal. A chiropractor can create a unique plan to accelerate your healing and keep you moving well after a detailed exam is performed to determine the best treatment.

Do I have to be in pain to get an adjustment?


No! Chiropractors can assist with wellness, athletic performance, mobility, and more! Joints don’t have blood vessels inside them to deliver nutrition, so they require movement to pump out waste and pump in nutrients. Chiropractic adjustments can facilitate this motion and keep your joints healthy.
