One common treatment method we use is the chiropractic adjustment. This is a joint manipulation that is done to restore range of motion to a restricted vertebra or bone. This treatment is highly effective in restoring correct motion to vertebrae and joints in your body. While the sound is alarming to some, the ‘crack’ is not a bone breaking or crunching against another, it is merely a gas bubble being produced as joint surfaces move away from one another. We understand some patients may feel apprehensive about this procedure so please let us know if you are concerned or would prefer to not have this method of treatment. We have many other treatment options to help restore movement.
