What is the sound I hear during an adjustment?

Chiropractic adjustments often, though not always, produce a sound. It can be described as a popping or cracking noise, which can make people who have never had an adjustment nervous. However, it not actually the bones cracking. Instead, it’s the release of a small gas bubble containing oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide from the joint capsule. This natural process is known as joint cavitation, and it is exactly the same as the sound you hear when popping open a pressurized can of soda.
