What happens when a Chiropractic Adjustment takes place

By: Woodlands Family Chiropractic | Published 01/12/2021


We get this question asked all the time... What happens when a Chiropractic Adjustment takes place... and what causes the popping sound you hear?
Chiropractic adjustment uses “Crack” or “Pop” (Cavitation) to remove restricted joint movement. This facilitates receptors inside the joint and reduces pain signals from the joint. The brain interprets the release in joint movement and reduces pain.
The popping noise you hear, is caused by small pockets of air or bubbles, which are in the fluid that surrounds your joints. When joint tissues are stretched during a chiropractic adjustment, the pockets of air "pop," which creates that cracking sound you hear.
This is all harmless and is non evasive, that is why chiropractic is easily applied to all ages.
