WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC?
What IS that popping sound?
The sounds sometimes associated with adjustments are not bones snapping, cartilage cracking, or any other harmful process. The sound you may hear during an adjustment is an abrupt liberation of gas from the fluid inside a joint. The movement which occurs with some adjustments causes a gas bubble to suddenly expand, making a sound like pulling wet hands apart.
