Something you may be wondering is if I crack bones. You'll be pleased to know that chiropractors do not 'crack' bones - this would hurt a lot! What chiropractors (as well as physiotherapists and osteopaths) use is what is called spinal manipulative therapy. This is the movement of a joint which may create a 'cracking' sound. This cracking sound is understood to be the release of gas in the joint space.
So thankfully no bone cracking will be happening here! Spinal manipulative therapy should not be used on everyone and anyone. Careful consideration is applied to who it may benefit. There will be a lot more to your session than just adjustments!
