Chiropractic Care: What's That Cracking Sound?

By Genevieve Cunningham

For some people, going to the doctor or getting any kind of medical treatment is a scary concept. They don't like the idea of a stranger poking around their bodies and health. They don't want to take any medicine, get a complex treatment, or follow any strict rules. And when it comes to seeing a chiropractor, they just don't want to hear that cracking sound! While it's easy to see why this popping or cracking sound might make people nervous, the truth is that chiropractic care is both safe and effective. So what's the sound? If you are ready to set your fear aside and gain the benefits of regular chiropractic care, take a look at the specifics of adding this medical care to your life.

What Does the Chiropractor Do to the Body?

If you've never been to the chiropractic clinic, you may picture some crazy treatments or wild looking contraptions. Luckily, seeing the chiropractor is easy! Chiropractors use gentle manipulation -- using their hands -- to remove restrictions from the spine. They gently twist, turn, or otherwise manipulate the body. You might feel as though your body is being twisted in an abnormal position, but it's not. Chiropractors are well trained, extremely knowledgeable, and highly skilled in the inner workings of the body. 

What's That Sound?

Some people hear a popping sound during treatment. If you notice this, don't be alarmed. It's simply your body being adjusted and put back into its proper position. It's not dangerous, and it doesn't hurt. It's a lot like popping your back -- you twist, it pops, and you feel better! If you're nervous, just ask the chiropractor, and they may be able to explain what they're doing, why they're doing it, and what you can expect both during treatment and after.

What are the Main Benefits?

So why should you get chiropractic care anyway? The possible benefits are numerous. When people receive regular care, they might experience pain relief, improved flexibility, fewer headaches, better sleep, improved focus, and many other positive side effects. Most people also report that they just feel better overall. The bottom line is that if you want to feel good and improve your health, chiropractic care is an excellent option to add to your life.
