One part of Chiropractic treatment involves applying quick, precise pressure to the joint, which creates a cracking or a popping noise. This is called an adjustment. The popping noise doesn’t come from your bones, but from the release of a gas bubble when two joints are separated. This is just like when you pop your knuckles, or you scrunch up your toes first thing in the morning.
There is no reason to think there is a connection. In fact, an adjustment increases mobility, reduces pressure on the joints, muscles, and nerves, and allows the spine to return to a natural position and movement.
True. A Medical Doctor (M.D.) spends four years getting a bachelor’s degree, and then four years at medical school learning about all the various ailments of the human body. A Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) is also required in most states to have a bachelor’s degree followed by four years of chiropractic training SPECIFICALLY focusing on the needs of the spine.
