Shoulder-blade cracking

  • anybody experience cracking the shoulder-blades (scapula)? I can crack both sides and it feels so good. I just make a fist with both hands and place my fist on the medial side of the shoulder-blades…but its an odd place to crack.

  • no , i wish i could do that

  • Yep. I do that one when I'm REALLY nervous or annoyed about something. I used to have to touch my shoulder while I did it but I don't have to anymore. Some people were real jealous of that, some were disgusted haha.

  • I do it real easy, but I wish I didn't.

  • I'm not sure if the bit i do is the one you are talking about, but when i am lying in bed with my arm down, i kind of pull my arm down and put pressure on it and get a satisfying crack which i can do repetitively i think. I haven't done it a lot as i would have to keep moving to get my arm into the same spot.

  • The scapulothoric joint. This is an interesting one to crack. I crack it daily, often several times a day. any time it feels ready. I usually can get it by simply elevating my shoulders toward my ears. sometimes also cracking vertebrae at the same time.

    But can you please explain how your cracking it again.
    Are you saying you use the fist of the opposite arm to push the medial border lateraley.
    Sounds fun, I 'd like to learn your technique.

  • What is the medial thing?

    How do you know all of this?

  • not sure why that link doesn't work.

    toward the midline of the body (example, the middle toe is located at the medial side of the foot).

    away from the midline of the body (example, the little toe is located at the lateral side of the foot).

  • Ah thank you doctor MC lol
