What Can Patients Expect a Chiropractic Adjustment to Feel Like?

One of the most common questions we get from first time patients when they come in for treatment at Wilbeck Chiropractic is what does a chiropractic adjustment feel like? This can be a difficult question to answer because every patient that we treat is different, spinal alignment and misalignments are unique to each patient.

Some patients hear or feel a loud “crack or pop” when the spine is manipulated back into proper alignment and pressure has been alleviated. Some patients don’t experience this audible crack or pop during an adjustment, but can feel the gentle release of pressure as they are adjusted it really just depends on the patient.

Chiropractic adjustments are very specific and when we treat a patient for the first time, we administer a full exam with digital x-rays if necessary so that we can better diagnose and better treat the specific areas of the spine that are lacking or lost mobility completely.

During a chiropractic adjustment doctors locate the immobilized areas of the spine and work them back into proper alignment, patients can expect to feel a gentle buildup of tension followed by a soothing release of pressure. The sensation or feeling of a chiropractic adjustment has been described in a similar fashion to the cracking of knuckles.

The best way for you to experience the natural sensation and relief of a chiropractic adjustment first hand is to schedule an appointment with one of our top rated Doctors of Chiropractic.


Are Chiropractic Adjustments Painful?

Absolutely not, sit back and relax chiropractic adjustments offer safe natural relief from spinal misalignments that cause neck or back pain. Chiropractic adjustments are one of the only treatments for spinal misalignments or pain that don’t require painful surgery or recovery. Chiropractic treatments are safe for those of all ages including infants, expectant mothers, and elderly patients. We can use multiple degrees of force to safely manipulate the spine ranging from gentle to deep disc decompression depending on the body type and severity of the spinal misalignment. Most patients leave our chiropractic clinics relaxed, rejuvenated and most importantly pain free.
