Is Chiropractic care safe?

Chiropractic is a safe, non-invasive, drug-free treatment for neuromusculoskeletal disorders. There’s very little risk involved with Chiropractic treatment. Pain relief is often immediate for conditions suited to Chiropractic care. Occasionally, stiffness, soreness, and aches may follow a treatment, as though the patient has done some form of exercise. These effects typically dissipate within a day, and the treated condition sees improvement.
Some people are uncomfortable about the sound or feeling of the “cracking” associated with spinal manipulation. This noise, called joint cavitation, is sometimes a byproduct of spinal manipulation. Bubbles of nitrogen gas are released from spaces between joints, creating the sound. The cracking sound isn’t needed for an effective adjustment, and there are many treatment techniques that reduce the chance of joint cavitation occurring.
