    Now about that “joint popping”. What is it, exactly?

    Adjustment (or manipulation) of a joint may result in the release of a gas bubble between the joints, which makes a popping sound. The same thing occurs when you “crack” your knuckles. The noise is caused by the change of pressure within the joint, which results in gas bubbles being released. There is usually minimal, if any, discomfort involved. (American Chiropractic Association)

    Oh, and by the way, as far as neck adjustments go, that sound you hear is MUCH louder in your ears than it is in the room. Don’t let it scare you! 🙂
