You Are Making the Whole System Worse

No. You may be able to get your neck to click or pop but you are only moving the hypermobile segments, ie the areas that are already moving outside their normal range of motion and are highly irritating the nervous system.

To begin with you may feel temporary relief, however, ultimately you are making the whole system worse and eventually you will cause yourself more pain and when you do come and seek care it will take longer for us to correct and stabilise your spine.

When we examine you we take a great deal of care to find the subluxation, the joint that needs correction, and then we apply a specific thrust in the correct direction to restore normal function.

Even a Chiropractor who is highly trained to find and correct spinal subluxations cannot adjust themselves.
