Why is there a ‘popping’ sound when I’m being adjusted?

When your chiropractor is adjusting a joint in your body, this may result in the release of a gas bubble between the joints. This results in the popping sound that you’re hearing! The same popping sound occurs when you “crack” your knuckles. The noise is caused by the change of pressure within the joint, which results in nitrogen being released. Don’t worry, though, there is usually no discomfort involved!
