Can I Adjust Myself? Can my Friend Just “Pop My Back?”

No. Since a chiropractic adjustment is a specific force, applied in a specific direction to a specific joint, it is virtually impossible to adjust oneself correctly and accurately. It is possible to turn or bend or twist in certain ways to create the same “popping” sound that sometimes accompanies a chiropractic adjustment. Unfortunately, this type of joint manipulation is usually counterproductive, often making an already unstable spine even more unstable, and sometimes can be dangerous.

Dr. Radspinner is a specialist in performing these adjustments correctly to prevent further damage and encourage better health. Check out our special, no obligation new patient offer and start solving problems instead of causing them!

Is Chiropractic Care Addictive?

No. Your body contains everything it needs to heal, now and in the future. Chiropractic care is just a method to help your body do so more quickly and more completely. Many people see chiropractors every few years, and some attain the health they desire and maintain it on their own! Of course, once people experience the health benefits and freedom of movement that come as a result of frequent, skilled adjustments, many people choose to keep life-long relationships with their chiropractor.
