Most Asked Chiropractic Questions Answered

By Alexis Mills

Since chiropractic care is becoming more and more popular, people are spreading the word about the benefits they receive from it. Even though more people are finding relief and receiving a better quality of life through chiropractic care, curiosity is at an all-time high. People want to know exactly what they are getting themselves into before getting any care, which is understandable. Here are some of the most asked questions to help keep yourself informed.

Is Chiropractic Safe?

Yes, chiropractic care has an excellent safety record. This is an all-natural approach to healthcare that helps the body get on its natural healing cycle. Participating in chiropractic care can help you avoid invasive procedures or addictive medications that traditional healthcare uses.

Can You Adjust Yourself?

Definitely not. Please do not attempt to perform a chiropractic adjustment or pop your own back. Even if you do know what you are doing, it is dangerous to perform adjustments on yourself. Chiropractors go through extensive training and education to be able to adjust patient's spines safely. With that being said, chiropractors themselves don't perform adjustments on themselves because it's basically impossible to accurately do it on yourself. Also, it's important to note that cracking your back through bending and twisting is not the same thing as a chiropractic adjustment. Any kind of self-joint manipulation can create an unstable spine to be even worse. And don't let a buddy adjust your spine -- just because they can lift you from behind doesn't make them a chiropractor.

Are All Patients Adjusted the Same?

The quick answer is no. Every person's body is different and has their own issues, which makes every case different. A chiropractor does an examination on every patient to evaluate your spine and make an individual plan targeted to what you need.

What Creates the Popping Sound During an Adjustment?

The popping sound during a chiropractic adjustment is concerning to many patients, but it is completely normal and nothing to worry about. The sound is painless even though it can sound scary. It comes when gas trapped in the joints is released so the joints can work more efficiently.
