11. If chiropractic care is not dangerous, why do I hear loud popping noises during adjustments?

In between the joints of the spine is a lubricating fluid. When you have a subluxation, gases can build up between the vertebrae. When released, you may hear a popping noise. This results in a similar noise to the cracking of a knuckle or from your knees when you bend them too quickly. If the sound bothers you, ask your chiropractor if they can perform the adjustment without the noise.

12. Does everyone get the same adjustments?

When you first see a chiropractor, they will perform an analysis to determine where your issues lie. Your spine has 24 moving bones and each one can move in seven directions. Your adjustments will be based on your individual needs.

13. My back or neck cracks, does that mean I’m adjusting myself?

No, you may hear a similar sound, but you risk causing more nerve interference and further complications. Even a chiropractic doctor with years of experience has to see a chiropractor when adjustments are needed.

14. Will I have to see a chiropractor for life if I start going?

Your care plan length will vary according to your condition. Some patients feel significant improvement after only a couple of adjustments, while others require many more. Still, others visit their chiropractors regularly to maintain good health.

15. How come some newborns see a chiropractor?

Many infant issues such as colic and ear infections can be improved with chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic is so safe that even subluxations from childbirth can be corrected in infancy.

The bottom line in chiropractic care is this — if you have nerve interference from subluxations, then chiropractic adjustments can vastly improve your life. Call 800.775.7900, or contact Chiropractic Lifecare of America to learn how we can save you up to 50 percent on affordable chiropractic care.
