Hey there! If you're wondering whether you can adjust your own spine or if you need to visit a chiropractor for an adjustment, the short answer is that it's generally better to leave it to the professionals. Chiropractic adjustments involve adjusting the spine and joints in specific ways to improve their alignment and range of motion and to reduce nerve interference and pressure.
While it may be tempting to crack your own neck or back, doing so without proper training and technique could potentially cause more harm than good. When someone is stretching or bending in certain positions, they may feel or hear a “crack” or “pop” sound. A frequent question is… am I adjusting myself. The answer is no, it’s just joint noise (audible) and is NOT the objective. The process of reducing spinal alignment, taking pressure off the joints (and soft tissue), increasing range of motion along with reducing nerve pressure is the objective. The adjustment is done so in a specific direction based on a chiropractic exam.
A chiropractor adjustment is a safe and effective way to address pain, stiffness, and other issues related to spinal misalignment. So, if you're experiencing discomfort or mobility issues, it's best to seek the help of a qualified chiropractor.
