How to get joints "in the mood" to crack?



  • How do you get joints (especially spine, neck, back) in the mood to crack? By this I mean ready to crack, like sometimes you want to crack and it just won't go.
    Thanks



  • Inhale, exhale, try to relax. Tension makes it hard to crack.



  • Sometimes pulling on it the other way - the opposite direction you wish to crack it in - helps "prime" the joint.



  • I find that my joints are more in the mood to crack after my muscles have warmed up a bit. Like after soaking in a hot bath.



  • I find that first thing in the morning is worst, specially for my neck
