If you’re like most people, you’ve wondered what those large popping noises are when a Chiropractor follows through with an adjustment. Although it may seem menacing, it’s completely normal and doesn’t indicate pain.
When a chiropractic adjustment occurs, the spinal tissue is stretched out, which may cause cracking or popping sounds. These sounds are the result of tiny pockets of air being released from the fluid that exists around each joint. For patients who experience chronic back pain, regular adjustments are the best solution for immediate and long-term pain relief.
For those with sore or tight muscles, your chiropractor may recommend incorporating other treatment solutions like muscle therapy or controlled exercises. Depending on your occupation and routine, they may also provide recommendations that help improve your environment in ways that reduce stress and tension. For example, if your career sees you sitting in front of a computer for long periods, your chiropractors may suggest incorporating ergonomic applications into your office.
