Back Cracking

Is Back Cracking Safe?

When you visit a chiropractor you may receive an adjustment to your spine that results in your back cracking, which causes a clicking or popping noise. Many people are interested to know what causes this noise during a chiropractic adjustment. The popping noise is completely normal and completely safe.

When some people begin seeing a chiropractor they may be a little put off by the noise of the adjustment, however, it is a normal response to an adjustment. Most chiropractors will have a number of techniques that they can use, some of which will cause a few pops and clicks in the spine and some that may not. As a patient, it is completely up to you to decide what type of adjustment you are most comfortable receiving. Chiropractic adjustments have been found to be useful for people with a number of conditions such as back pain, headaches, neck pain, migraines, and sports injuries.

What Causes Your to Back Crack?

During a back adjustment, your back undergoes quick, gentle stretching of the spinal facet joint, so you may hear a cracking or popping noise. This is caused by small pockets of air or bubbles, which are in the fluid that surrounds your joints. When joint tissues are stretched during a chiropractic adjustment, the pockets of air “pop,” which creates that cracking sound you hear. After this treatment, you should feel more movement in your back.
