Cracking Joints in Your Spine, Mesa Arizona
Let’s say your car is running rough and you decide it needs some work done. You have a good friend who really likes you but doesn’t know a thing about cars who decides to open the hood and start pulling wires and twisting screws. What’s the chance that the engine will run any better? What’s the chance that the engine will actually have more problems when they are done messing around under the hood? We call this approach to popping and cracking joints in your spine a gross manipulation. This is what many people (health care professionals and lay people alike) do and the poor unsuspecting client thinks they just received an adjustment. This is in fact very far from the truth.
Doesn’t it make sense to take your car to a certified mechanic so he can use his knowledge, experience and state of the art equipment to pin point the exact problem with the engine and correct it? That’s what millions of people do at their Chiropractor’s office on a regular basis to keep their spine tuned up and functioning at 100%.
Walking or pushing on someone’s back until it pops does NOT correct spinal subluxations. You may indeed crack joints in the spine, but it is not removing subluxations – it is actually causing more short-term damage and long-term stress to the health of the spine and nervous system.
If you feel you need to have your spine popped, or if you have cracking and popping in your spine for no apparent reason – you should schedule a thorough spinal check up from a doctor of Chiropractic. In our office we use state of the art equipment to measure spinal ranges of motion, nervous system function and stress and we deliver specific adjustments to the correct areas of the spine.
