“I need to get my back cracked!”. “What’s that cracking sound?”. “I have it when I get my neck cracked.” “Just don’t crack my neck, it makes me nervous.” Perhaps people are nervous about the cracking sound a back makes when it gets adjusted, because they don’t understand what makes that sound. Just like when you hear that same cracking sound in your knuckles, your back can react the same way to an adjustment. Basically that cracking sound is just gas being released from between the joint of the bones. No, the bones aren’t being “cracked” together! Just like your knuckles aren’t cracking together, it’s just gas pressure that is being relieved. Maybe you’re been a bit freaked out about trying chiropractic and you just don’t know what to do for your back and neck. May we suggest that you read up on our office and Dr. Becerra, and then make an appointment for a free consultation to discuss your situation with Dr. Becerra. If we can’t help you, we’ll tell you. Give us a call!
