What's that Popping Sound?



Is it a snap?

Is it a crackle

Or is it a pop?

None of the above.

The sound made during an adjustment is called a cavitation (cav-a-tay-shun).

This sound is just air being released when the joint space is opened. Not all adjustments will make a cavitation but that does not mean the joint has not been mobilized.

So the next time you are adjusted you now know what that sound is called! #nocrackingallowed #chiro101
