Understanding the Sounds of a Chiropractic Adjustment

If you’ve visited a chiropractor for the treatment of lower back pain in Geneva, you may have heard a popping sound during your chiropractic adjustment. Many people are concerned that this popping sound indicates that something may be breaking or that there is a problem with the bones. In fact, the popping noise is completely harmless.

As you’ll learn by watching this video, your chiropractor can treat your back pain by carefully manipulating the spinal structures. The joints of the spine are surrounded by synovial fluid, which often contains small gas bubbles or pockets. A chiropractic adjustment will cause these joint tissues to stretch, which releases the gas. The popping sound occurs because of the change of pressure in the area.
