Why are chiropractic adjustments done?

Chiropractic adjustments are performed to relieve pain and improve your overall function, the Mayo Clinic states.

 

The adjustments involve a chiropractor moving a joint past its typical range of motion, but not too far as to cause damage to the joint, according to the Mayo Clinic.

 

During an adjustment, you might hear cracking and popping as the chiropractor works on the joint.

 

You and your chiropractor will set up a treatment to discuss how often you will need adjustments.
