Do Chiropractors Really Crack Your Back?
As chiropractors, we get asked all the time, ‘do you crack backs?’ Of course, we don’t crack your back or crack your bones!
Chiropractic is actually the adjustment of the bones in your spine to allow your body to function at its best ability. When your body is functioning properly, our patients report much freer movement and a reduction or elimination of pain caused by muscle tightness or spasms.
How did the ‘back cracking’ myth come to be? Sometimes during adjustments, patients hear a noise that sounds like cracking and is caused by the opening up of the space between joins and the gas that escapes from it. This is called cavitation.
Chiropractors don’t crack your back. A chiropractic adjustment is very safe and comfortable! Schedule your adjustment with one of our great doctors at (585) 889-3280 and see for yourself!
