What is The Cracking Sound at The Chiropractic Adjustment?
If you've ever received a chiropractic adjustment, you may have heard a cracking or popping sound as your chiropractor manipulates your spine. This sound can be alarming to some patients, but it is a normal and harmless occurrence that is simply the result of gas being released from the joints.
At Camarata Chiropractic in Rochester, NY, we understand that some patients may have questions or concerns about the cracking sound that can occur during an adjustment. We want to assure our patients that this sound is not harmful and is simply a result of the adjustment process.
When a chiropractor manipulates the spine, it can create a vacuum effect in the joints. This vacuum can cause gas to be released from the joint, which results in the cracking or popping sound that many patients hear during an adjustment.
While this sound can be alarming to some patients, it is important to note that it is not harmful and is a normal occurrence during chiropractic adjustments. In fact, many patients report feeling immediate relief after an adjustment, and the popping sound is simply a sign that the adjustment was successful in realigning the spine.
If you have concerns or questions about the cracking sound that can occur during a chiropractic adjustment, we encourage you to speak with one of our experienced chiropractors. We are happy to answer any questions you may have and address any concerns you may be experiencing.
