Although self-adjusting may produce temporary relief, you should avoid the temptation for several reasons. 👇

Resist the temptation to pop your own back, or have a friend help you. Self-application of a crude generalized force to an entire region of the spine rarely frees the restricted culprit, but rather further loosens an already mobile segment. Over time, repeating this could lead to new problems from creating excessive motion.

Consequently, spinal manipulation should be performed only by chiropractors or other highly trained doctors who can recognize when an adjustment is appropriate and when it is not.
