Chiropractors go through years of training to learn highly specific adjustment techniques for a reason – an improperly administered adjustment can be dangerous. While many people attempt to get that “pop” of relief on their own, the relief they feel, if any, is usually very temporary. And they may make the problem worse.
Performing self-adjustments takes the body through non-specific motions which can force a joint or muscle into harmful ranges of motion. It is strongly recommended you let trained and licensed experts address your healthcare needs.
