Working as a Chiropractor in Helsinki and Oulu I frequently get asked by my patients what makes the noise or the crack when a Chiropractor moves a bone? Well today I wanted to briefly explain what causes the noise and how it is something you don’t need to be fearful of when you see a Chiropractor.
First of all its important to understand that a Chiropractor is a neuromuscular skeletal expert and would have been to university for a minimum of 4,5 years to train in these specialist fields.
When a Chiropractor checks your spine he is assessing all 24 verterbral bones for their movement and positioning if they identify an area of the spine that is not moving properly and/or is out of position then that area needs to be Adjusted.
The Adjustment is what causes the cracking sound or the official name Cavitation. Within the joint capsule there is a liquid and a gas these substances allow the joint to move freely and lubricate the joints so to lesson any wear and tear on these structures. When the Chiropractor identifies the joint that needs to be opened and corrected he will lie the patient in a particular way so that the Chiropractors hand can contact that joint. The adjustment will press on the locked joint gently and quickly to open that joint and its when this joint opens the gas and liquid separate and it is that which creates the POP or CRACK.
So once you understand that the noise from the joint is just gas and liquid separating and not anything that is dangerous or scary you can relax and hopefully enjoy the adjustment as like many of our patients do.
I have also done a short video about this topic please click on it if you are interested in seeing what a model of the spine looks like when it is adjusted:
