According to the Mayo clinic, chiropractic adjustment helps remove pain and improve the function of specific parts of the body. This practice is done by a chiropractor and involves moving joints beyond the range of where they are supposed to be. During an adjustment, it is common to hear cracking noises.
As far as results, people hope to feel less pain in their bodies. According to the Mayo Clinic, the most common reasons for seeing a chiropractor are lower back pain, neck pain, and headaches.
Chiropractors do not give out prescription medications. They believe that the human body can heal itself when it is properly balanced.
