What Happens When A Chiropractor Cracks My Back?

There are lots of myths out there about back-cracking. Is it good for you? Are you actually hurting your joints? Dr. Brien Hartings has some answers on the noises you hear when cracking your back and during your adjustments.

What that pop or crack actually is is gas releasing from the joint, not actually the joint itself. A chiropractic adjustment improves motion in a joint that’s been stuck to the point where it’s causing interference in your nerve signals. When our back is cracked, we release pressure off of our nerves, which allows for all the great health improvements that come with releasing that tension, such as fewer headaches and allergy symptoms as well as better breathing.

If you feel like you’re constantly needing to pop or crack your back, it is probably because there is an area that’s stuck and needs addressed by your chiropractor. Our Columbus chiropractors are ready to help you improve your overall health and change the way you think about your well-being.
