A chiropractic adjustment is a precisely gentle movement. This movement is applied by the hand to a joint within the body. The goal of a chiropractic adjustment is to restore both function and movement to the body. This can be likened to a soda can that has increased pressure within. In the same way, a joint will often have increased pressure within its joint capsule. This is similar to how when you “pop” open a soda can, you hear the pressure releasing. This is what happens when a joint has been adjusted, similar to “cracking” a knuckle. Therefore, the sound we hear is gas releasing from a joint within the body. But it should be noted that the noise of gas releasing is not necessary when an adjustment is performed. It is, however, a common experience.
