Popping upper back/ spine.
I was having trouble popping my uper back the other day, until it finally gave– what relief! Anyways, for all those who had the same problem I did, try and take these tips into account:
Alot of popping my upper back comes from utilizing my shoulders-- pull them back and shrug, and try to push one down while pulling another up. Tilt your head gently towards either side... this helps me get those nasty pops out.
to crack my upper and mid back, I sit in an office chair that is rather short and only comes part of the way up my back. School desk chair works great, especially if they are hard chairs.
I then simply lean backwards, bending my back over the chair. Many loud cracks usually result.
School chairs are defiantly the best.
you got that right, jenna.
At my job, the training/conference room has old chairs that are the perfect height for back cracks. I get excited at the thought, I give my back a good workout, cracking all day long during training!
I used to love the upper back pop I could get from school desk chairs but I haven't sat in those in years so I have to resort to other measures. I can easily pop my lower back just by twisting, either while sitting or while lying down. The only way my upper back will pop is if I have help. Thankfully my fiance is willing to pop my upper back for me by hugging me and lifting me up.
