Chiropractic Spinal Adjustment: What Was That Pop?

Share

Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Alexander Jimenez reveals what the popping sound is during a spinal adjustment.

Chiropractic Care & Back Pain

Has this happened to you? You are at the chiropractor getting treatment for your own back pain, and during a spinal adjustment, a sizable popping sound is heard by you. It seems somewhat alarming, does not it? Rest assured, though: That pop within a chiropractic spinal adjustment is totally ordinary.

During a back adjustment, your back experiences rapid, mild stretching of the spinal joint, which means you may hear a snapping or popping sound. This really is brought on by little pockets of air or bubbles, which are in the fluid that surrounds your joints. When joint tissues are extended throughout a chiropractic adjustment, the pockets of atmosphere “pop,” which creates that cracking sound you hear.

Following this treatment, you could feel in your back for more movement. But, the muscles may still be raw and tight.

Your chiropractor might also incorporate other chiropractic care treatments like muscle therapy. You must notice more back pain relief with each session.

Your chiropractor could also advocate preventive care, including specific exercises, and he/she might give you ergonomic tips on the best way to accurately bend and lift, in addition to how to take good care of your back while at your desk (if you work in a office). Doing specific exercises and maintaining good posture might help keep movement that is healthy in your back.

Is Chiropractic Care Right For You?

It is crucial that you consider that chiropractic care is not a cure all for all conditions that are back. Some backbone conditions that cause back pain may require a combination of treatments, or other treatments, for example surgery and drugs.

But in the event you have a condition that causes pain back and you need to test a non-operative treatment, chiropractic care can be an excellent treatment choice for you personally. But remember, you need to not be alarmed by a popping noise during a spinal adjustment—it’s ordinary in chiropractic care.
