A lot of people crack their joints habitually. They do it on their hands, knuckles, fingers, legs, toes, and even on their necks. Commonly, people do it to release pressure, tension and stresses -- a quick relief in some ways. But are we really doing the “cracking” correctly? Or is it even safe to crack those joints purposely?
Chiropractic Adjustment works by manipulating the vertebrae that fail to function normally causing pains to affected areas. A highly skilled and precise movement is then applied by hand to a specific joint in your body -- this manipulation will then loosen the joint and restores its proper movement and function.
Subluxation, commonly known as pinched nerves, is a common type of misalignment in the spine area, resulting in nerve pressure or irritation. Even the slightest misalignment can produce pressure and the irritation of the nerves, which results in the improper communication of important nerve impulses to the different organs, cells, and tissues of the body. The greater the misalignment, the more severe it will result in pain, discomfort, and illness.
