Chiropractic is a safe and effective manual treatment option for many health care conditions. Pain is usually the first thing that drives people to seek help regarding their problem. Unfortunately, pain can also be the last sign given by the body to alert you to dysfunction. You do not have to live in pain. Chiropractic can help relieve your pain, keep it away, and help you live a more healthful lifestyle.
The important point about chiropractic is the ability to restore not only motion in the joints leading to better function, but also restoring proper nervous system signaling. Since the nervous system is the main system controlling all the organs of the body, proper communication between the brain/spinal cord and the organs ensures proper functionality of those organs.
Numerous research studies have recently been published on the effectiveness of chiropractic care in the treatment and management of many healthcare conditions. These include but are not limited to the following: low back pain, neck pain, scoliosis, tension headaches, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, sprains, tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis), and golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis). Research also continues to support many visceral benefits of chiropractic improving conditions such as asthma, acid reflux, and menstrual cramps. A significant percentage of pregnant women report having low back pain during pregnancy and labor. Recent published research studies supported the effectiveness of chiropractic care and acupuncture in alleviating low back pain during pregnancy and labor. Research has also supported reduced labor time.
Chiropractic, when integrated with acupuncture and rehabilitation, can alleviate your pain, restore motion in your joints, and steer you to a more healthful lifestyle.

So what is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment is a gentle, effective, and specific thrust delivered to a certain joint in the body with a specific force, speed, and direction. The adjustment helps restore proper joint motion and neuromuscular stimulation. So not only pain is reduced, but proper signaling occurs between the brain/spinal cord and the organs, and therefore, better functionality is restored. Chiropractic adjustments can be applied using many techniques, such as the Diversified Technique, Thompson Technique, Sacro-Occipital Technique, Cox-Flexion Distraction Technique®, Activator Technique®, and Logan Basic Technique. Diversity in techniques allows the doctor more options for treatment, tailored for each patient’s individual needs.
So what is that cracking sound that you hear with the adjustment?
What you hear is dissolved gases—oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide—being released into your joints. When a joint gets adjusted, you stretch the joint capsule. Gas is then released quickly, which forms bubbles. That is the same concept when you crack your knuckles.
