What is the popping sound?
During many chiropractic adjustment, you may experience a popping noise. The goal of the manipulation is not to crack but to restore the joint mobility.
Some of our joints are joined by a joint capsule containing synovial liquid and gas bubbles. When chiropractors make an adjustment, it increases the range of movement of the joint, and reduce the pressure inside it. The gas rapidly expands in the liquid and that’s when the popping is heard.
There are also other techniques without any cracking just as effective. If you are worried about popping sound, please talk to us and we will find the technique that will be most appropriate for you.
