Can I Adjust Myself?

Since a chiropractic adjustment is a specific force, applied in a specific direction, to a specific spinal joint, it is virtually impossible to adjust oneself.

It is possible to turn or bend or twist certain ways to create a “popping” sound, similar to the sound that sometimes accompanies a Chiropractic adjustment. Unfortunately, this type of joint movement is usually counterproductive, often making an already unstable area of the spine even more unstable. Adjusting the spine is not for amateurs.

The best way to enjoy the helpful benefits of Chiropractic is to receive an adjustment from your qualified Doctor of Chiropractic.
