During a Chiropractic adjustment the two opposing surfaces of the joint are stretched. This creates a low pressure inside the joint. The low pressure allows gas bubbles to form inside the joint making a popping sound. Just like when you open a champagne bottle and get all the bubbles and pop! The sound is interesting, but it isn’t a guide to the quality or value of the adjustment. In fact in our clinic we use a variety of techniques, some of which may not make a sound at all, this may be the best technique for you, your Chiropractor will specifically tailor to your situation to get the best results.
