Why do joints pop when they are adjusted? Will it hurt?

When two surfaces of the joint are moved apart rapidly, as happens in a chiropractic adjustment, there is a chance of pressure in the joint space. This may sometimes cause a bubble of gas to ‘pop’ – but this sound is not significant and does not hurt. Skilled spinal manipulation should not be painful.
