Unfair :(



  • More of a philosophical point, I was just thinking, don't you reckon its unfair we have cracking joints and some people are fine and will never have cracking joints in their life?



  • Depends on whether you like cracking or not?



  • That's life for you. Unfair. Imagine how it must feel to get one of those really horrible diseases like cerebral palsy or to be one of those people who is allergic to 100 different foods. That would feel unfair too.



  • Yeh that is much worse.



  • It's completely unfair that there are some people who don't crack…for them!

    lol i wish i just never got punched though… are you aware of my story sieveboy?



  • No, being new here, I haven't perused all the threads…...do tell!



  • @Sieveboy:

    basically when i was 14 i got bullied and a guy punchde me in the back of the neck.
    ever since then i've had problems with my neck :cry:



  • Sorry to hear about that. Is the cracking a result or do you use the cracking to alleviate stiffness or pain?



  • @Sieveboy:

    i dont know really.
    i went to see a physio who said perhaps its a result because muscles adapt to injuries and traumas. the physio has given me some exercises which i'm disappointed with, i hoped there was more that could be done.

    what is your professional opinion on this?



  • Don't know, my degree is not in medicine or physiology, so take anything I say with a grain of salt.

    How long ago was this? Did the scoundrel use fist or some object?

    Were you x-rayed at the time to determine if any bones were broken?

    6 years i think.
    i'm not sure actually, it was in a tech lesson, so could have been an object, although i've assumed it was his fist.
    nah i wanted an x-ray but the gp said because there's no real pain there was no need.
    i have since asked for an x-ray again, but they reject me because x-rays are "dangerous"
    wtf?



  • Joint cracking is an amazing thing, it feels so good!

    I'm glad that I can crack nearly every joint in my body.

    I'd love to be "professionally" cracked by a chiropractor or such

    so would i - it costs a bomb though…



  • I've thought about going to a chiropractor due to the stiffness I have in my back and I really can't crack my own back.. never really been able to much… but my insurance at work doesn't cover chiros, so I have been holding off until things are financially better or until the wife and I return from vacation.

    well in england we have to pay for private stuff, i dont think chiros are on the NHS are they?
