The Surprising Reasons Behind Cracking Sound In Your Back: A Guide For All

Despite popular notions, a chiropractor does not crack your bones. The sound that is heard when the chiropractor adjusts your spine is actually just the gas bubbles in the joints being released, which is in fact a very important part of the treatment! This process realigns the spine and releases endorphins that provide relief and feelings of pleasure. To be sure if chiropractic care is right for you, we suggest consulting with our chiropractic doctor. Rest assured of professional and quality service.

Chiropractic care is a gentle, effective approach to health and wellness that is safe for the entire family. This includes everyone from babies to children to adults and seniors. Like adults, infants and children can suffer from spine misalignments. These misalignments are often the root source of several health issues and can cause unnecessary pain, discomfort, and stress for little ones and adults alike.

To address the misinformation first. Chiropractors do not crack your bones.

The popping sound you hear is from small gas bubbles in your joints. Dynamic changes of pressure within your joints causes these gas bubbles to pop, thus the noise you hear when “cracking” your back.

When a chiropractor so-called “cracks” your back, they are effectively pulling (vertebrae, etc.) joints apart so they can be reset them with the proper alignment. The reference to cracking comes from the sound two connected bones make at the joint when they are suddenly separated, releasing.

Chiropractic encourages proper movement and alignment, leading to stronger, healthier joints.

This process releases endorphins, giving you feelings of satisfaction and pleasure. This is why 'cracking' your back provides so much relief.

If you are still not sure if Chiropractic is right for you. Simply book a consultation with our Chiropractic doctor to discuss your concerns.
Trust that you are in quality, professional hands.
