The most commonly asked questions…
What is that POP I hear during an adjustment?
An adjustment is a high velocity, low amplitude thrust targeted at a specific joint segment to help increase mobility and decrease pain. During an adjustment, you may hear a popping sound.
Think about opening a can of pop. When you crack the can open, it quickly lowers the pressure inside of the can as the gas rushes out. This creates a hissing noise.
Similarly, the joint being adjusted is separated very slightly, causing a drop in pressure in the synovial fluid between the joints – the release of a gas bubble – and that signature “POP” sound.
What if I am not comfortable getting adjusted, can you still treat me?
Short answer – Yes.
Long answer – Our chiropractors utilize a wide range of treatment methods to achieve your health goals. Adjusting a patient is just one of these methods, but our Doctors always work with you as an individual. During your first visit, you can discuss any and all concerns with your Doctor, and together you can establish a plan that suits your needs but also achieves your health goals.
