FAQs

ask our chiropractors...

q:

What is the popping sound made during adjustments?

a:

You usually hear a popping noise as the vertebra are moved and adjusted. This is completely normal and indicates that a large amount of movement was achieved. If, however, there is no sound, it does not mean the adjustment was not effective, or didn’t “work.” The main thing is that movement was put into the right vertebra, in the right direction, with the right amount of force. The body takes care of the rest.

q:

Does getting adjusted cause arthritis?

a:

No, it does not. In fact, specific adjustments to the spine will prevent arthritis. This myth was likely propagated because if you crack your knuckles many times daily, over years, you could end up causing ligamentous laxity, and degenerative changes within the joint. Osteoarthritis happens due to improper positioning and mechanics in joints. But because chiropractic adjustments actually correct these things, and are only given to joints that are truly “stuck,” one can prevent, and even arrest the arthritic process in its tracks.

q:

Will I become addicted to adjustments?

a:

Of course not. As a matter of fact, people turn to chiropractic adjustments to avoid ingesting potentially harmful medication like Vicodin, Percocet and Ibuprofen. Chiropractic adjustments are a safe alternative to these addiction causing medications. Our chiropractors always recommend a treatment plan that spans over several weeks. Our ultimate goal here is to treat the stress and pressures on your spine.
