X-Ray


  • Community Lead

    Numerous x-rays have been done of my joints throughout my life. None ever showed any abnormality suggesting a problem with my joints.

    I conclude x-rays are no means to diagnose Jointcracktitis.



  • I agree. I got my neck xrayed because of the problems I have.

    The xray came back fine. I believe it only shows bone, and I have no idea who even looked at it.

    I have conclued my neck cracking causes inflamation my spinal area. This is from my personal research and tests.

    Although Im sure ther must be cartelage damage or something as well. I do over streck my neck quite a bit in search of pain relief



  • Hmmm…. i thought that an x-ray would show any problems and that, to me, would make it worse, seeing the damage i have done to my neck lol (nearly wrote necks) and fingers.

    However i guess there might be some x-ray that can tell and if not at the present time, then in the future.



  • interesting… yeah i thought that an x-ray would show something up. i've heard an MRi scan can help, but i dont know if that is dangerous or not..



  • MRI scans require you to stay very still etc.



  • are they the ones where you get put into this tube thingy?



  • Yeh think so.



  • hmm. i might have to have one of those if it helps diagnose



  • Might not though

    That sounds pretty conclusive - did you ever get any medical "help" for your cracking joints apart from x-rays?



  • As many people have pointed out, doctors are ignorant and themselves don't know the answer or do not classify jointcracking as a problem.



  • hhhmmmm..
    x rays show no problems
    ignorant doctors saying it's not a problem
    i conclude that…..self diagnosis is not a diagnosis... and is a problem

    neckpain man
    neck pain is VERY common
    every see an aspirin commercial
    even people who don't crack their necks experience neck pain
    I lose ROM almost every couple of months for a day or 2 from 'sleeping the wrong way'
    Massage therapy is GREAT for neck pain

    MFT or MFR - Myofascial Therapy or Myofascial release is great modality for when pain is involved.



  • massage therapy?

  • massage lol



  • google myofascial therapy and tell me

    You youngsters laugh now, you think you have neck pain now?

  • What the ….?
