@closet-cracker i found it by google too! my mom told me stories about how my father always blamed sam bodmer for all his troubles so i googled his name and i thought i had found his twitter account but he blocked me lol and then this site popped up (no pun intended)! and i'm pretty sure dj100 is the man i'm looking for!
Hello! I really like to crack my right thumb and index because it is super loud, i crack my knuckles or fingers in general all the time. The neck and back are typically the most satisfying for me, however
I do this, too. I refer to this as "cracking my butt". It's very satisfying. It usually happens when I'm sitting at my desk at work. I slouch down, stretch my legs out, and squeeze my butt. I do sometimes, like some other joints as well, get the feeling that it needs to crack, but can't quite get it done. I don't think I've ever felt pain in this crack, though.
I crack all the same ones as you, along with both ankles (my 2nd favorite crack, so deep and powerful!) and I can only get my left shoulder occasionally (like twice a year by accident, I can't do anything to make it happen), but I have SUCH a hard time getting my back to crack! My sister is the only one who can do it, and she puts so much force into it that she's nearly hurt herself on several occasions. Even chiropractors can't get the same multiple, deep cracks in ONE spot that my sister can - it's truly like 6 cracks. I do the regular laying-on-the-floor and she pushes up and down my spine, and nothing happens. Then at about the bra strap area of my spine, she uses all her weight into the push - thrusts down and then wiggles it up and down a bit without lifting up. Seriously, 6 cracks that change my mood and comfort for days. Chiropractors will get a few tiny cracks from my back because they just won't put in the same amount of force that my sister will. I've had several chiros say that the little cracks are just as important as the big cracks - sorry, I don't buy that.
Anyway, welcome to the forum! I'd love to hear how you get your back to crack - I'm always trying to figure out a way to do it myself!
