Back Pain due to sciatica Grand Rapids MI

"Is it bad to 'crack' my own spine?"

I wrote a blog about this on my LinkedIn page (read original blog) back in November but the question gets asked every week. Although it seems like a simple and gentle movement with a little sound, a lot goes into an adjustment that you probably don't realize.

Each time I evaluate your spine there a few things going through my head:

  • subluxation analysis
  • palpation skill
  • movement quality
  • X-ray interpretation
  • instrumentation readings
  • line of drive consideration
  • muscle tone
  • swelling/edema
  • force quotients
  • contact points
  • vertebral level selection
  • contra-indication assessments
  • family history
  • patient positioning
  • breath control
  • purpose
  • intent
  • timing

It took years to develop all of these skills individually, let alone tying it all together. So if you think you can handle all that, give it a shot (at your own risk). But I would recommend leaving it to the professionals who dedicate their lives to delivering a safe, effective adjustment.
