Many people think of chiropractors and they imagine some quack who’s going to snap and jerk your body in such a way that it cracks and pops your joints, but this is certain not the case… not always anyway. It is true that much of chiropractic work involved sharp jerks that create a popping sound followed by increased flexibility and a reduction, if not a vanishing, of pain. But a great deal of the work also involved extended periods of stretching and muscles exercises that can also have these positive results. What type of technique is used by your Hopkins chiropractor will depend on your specific need.
