The noise of a Chiropractic Adjustment

The cracking noise you hear during a chiropractic adjustment is often associated with a formation of gas within the joints. This is a natural and harmless occurrence. When a chiropractor performs an adjustment, they apply controlled force to a joint, which can momentarily separate the joint surfaces. As the joint surfaces separate, gas bubbles within the synovial fluid (joint fluid) can form, creating that characteristic cracking sound.

It's essential to understand that this sound is not indicative of anything harmful and is a normal part of the adjustment process.
