Adjusting my back

Several years ago, while receiving a massage, a girl used a technique to "pop" some of my lower vertebrae by pulling on the skin which covers each vertebrae. I've noticed this is quite easy to do, and does relieve lower back pain quite a bit.

My question is: Have you ever heard of or tried this? is this method regularly used? is it fairly safe?

It's a matter of curiosity for me, as I've never seen a chiropractor do it. However it seem much easier than most home adjustment methods.

Silicone inserts leave radius and ulna pressure-free and provide intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
