We have all had that feeling to want to crack our own neck or back. It is normal to feel that way and have a desire to relieve the pain associated with it. However, just because it is normal, does not mean it is a good practice. In fact, it can do damage to your spine and muscles. It may even increase the chances of a stroke at some point in your life. We urge those that do this to try to break the habit. So, what can you do instead? The best way to deal with back and neck pain is to see an upper cervical chiropractor.
