- What’s the popping noise?
Escaping gases. Scientists explain that synovial fluid present in your joints acts as a lubricant. The fluid contains the gases oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide.

- What is the education of a chiro?
Students begin by fulfilling undergraduate degree requirements, with a strong emphasis on the core sciences such as chemistry, anatomy, physiology, and physics. They then receive a Doctor of Chiropractic degree which is very demanding involving pathology and biochemistry at a highly detailed level. They evolve into advanced clinical studies such as orthopedics, neurology, examination procedures, differential diagnosis, and x-ray interpretation. They refine their technique in classes, and all students must complete clinical internships before graduating. The final step is the rigorous national board exam and state exams.
- Can I adjust myself?
No. Hearing the popping noise does not mean you are adjusting yourself. A chiropractic adjustment is a specific force, applied in a specific direction, to a specific joint, with the intent of restoring normal alignment and function. This in turn allows the nervous system to communicate between the brain and body which allows us to return to our normal state of being. It is impossible to apply such a force to yourself, especially on the back! A chiropractor is highly trained to employ the proper techniques to make sure you are aligned safely and correctly.
