Does a chiropractic adjustment hurt?

Trying anything new can be a daunting task. 

If you've been to YouTube, you can find volumes of videos of people getting their backs "cracked." 

Some people think it's the coolest thing since slided bread, while others think it looks terrifying!

I frequently see patients who have conditions like osteoporosis, spine fusions, and severe disc herniations. I also see patients who have perhaps had a bad experience with chiroporactic in the past.  While it seems most people prefer the old school chiropractic techniques, there are other chiropractic treatment methods that don't involve the traditional "twisting and popping" of the joints. 

In all honesty, a properly performed chiropractic adjustment is low FORCE and high VELOCITY.  This means it is very quick, but not forceful.

Nonetheless, in this age of technology, we are blessed with different instruments that are incredibly mild and involve very little force applied to the spine. 

So if someone isn't too crazy about the old school chiropractic adjustment, we have other options!
