Most common injuries that we tend to see in our office are traumatic injuries – injuries that happen on the playing field when an athlete twists or gets hit in a certain way. The most common areas or body parts are affected are the knee and the shoulder. In the knee, fortunately most of the injuries are sprains or strains that can be treated non-surgically but sometimes we see those injuries to a certain ligament that require surgery.

Why is there a popping sound when a joint is adjusted?
American Chiropractic Association answeredAdjustment (or manipulation) of a joint may result in the release of a gas bubble between the joints, which makes a popping sound. The same thing occurs when you “crack” your knuckles. The noise is caused by the change of pressure within the joint, which results in gas bubbles being released. There is usually minimal, if any, discomfort involved.Helpful? 2 people found this helpful.
