What is an adjustment?

Trained chiropractors can correct aberrant movement of the vertebrae or joint by applying controlled pressure. This will improve spinal function, nervous system function, remove muscle tension and optimise general health.

What is the loud pop we hear during adjustments?

Popping sounds are caused by the release of air around the joints. The synovial fluid creates bubbles as your joints move as the carbon dioxide and nitrogen in the fluid rise up. When these air bubbles are released, this is where the popping sound begins. The fluid then returns to normal after this. It is important that you are aware that there may be some popping sounds and this is absolutely normal.
