Will a chiropractic adjustment hurt?
Adjustments or spinal manipulations are minor movements of the vertebrae within the spine. The reason your chiropractor does this minor movement is to realign the vertebrae in your spine that has moved out of place. This could be due to a number of reasons ranging from normal daily activities to trauma from a car accident. When vertebrae are out of place, it affects the overall body system from your muscular system to the central nervous system. Proper alignment allows all of the nerves and the systems in the body to function efficiently. Chiropractors make adjustments or spinal manipulations by using their hands or an instrument to realign the vertebrae properly. A quick movement happens often accompanied with an audible ‘pop’ that sounds like knuckles cracking and often without any discomfort. The ‘pop’ sound is due to the release of the gases found in the joints. Studies show that it is not always necessary for the ‘pop’ to be heard for the adjustment or spinal manipulation to be effective.
