When you get a chiropractic adjustment, it feels amazing, euphoric in fact. But why does your body feel so good right after a chiropractic adjustment? We already know the long-term benefits of chiropractic. An optimised spinal function that allows the nervous system to work at the highest level.
One of our top rated and best Chiropractors in London, Dr. Anika, provides some answers to the question of “what causes that instant relief that we feel from one single adjustment?”
What does a chiropractic adjustment feel like?
To help you understand the feeling of a chiropractic adjustment, first, you need to know why we do it.
Tension and stiffness build up in the joints of your spine from injury, poor posture, stress and day to day life. This causes the muscles and nerves to become tight and sore. A Chiropractic adjustment aims to release the tension in these joints by quickly and gently moving your joints past their restriction.
Why do you feel so good straight after a chiropractic adjustment?
The adjustment is a very quick process that is over before you know it has happened. The immediate feeling is often very relieving and euphoric. This is because an adjustment causes the body to release endorphins, feel good hormones from the brain, and your muscles respond by relaxing. It is similar to the feeling of a good stretch but much faster. If your body has spent a long time out of alignment then being aligned again will feel good, and you might feel more relaxed and flexible afterward as well.
Chiropractic adjustments have been shown in studies to be extremely safe and are associated with minimal risks. Mild soreness can occur in some cases but is often not long lasting and can be a part of the healing process.
It is good to know that the relief you feel may not last. It may take a few adjustments for your muscles to be trained to hold your joints in proper alignment. So don’t be discouraged or think it’s not working if the relief doesn’t last.
So, what is the popping noise?
Nitrogen gas is located in between the joints of your body. The adjustment moves the joint and this changes the pressure of gas inside, causing the clicking or cracking noise you hear. Just like the noise bubble wrap makes when you pop the bubbles.
