RE: Time Warp on Discovery Channel
Its a good idea, but honestly no one wants to see an ugly guy cracking, for an hour or even a half an hour. There would have to be;
crack protesters (people who hate crackers)
Thats my take on it.
RE: How unfair is this?
In looking at this situation as objectively as I can, the only thing I can say is that I'm not sure if it is a good idea for you to blame a single instance for your problems with cracking.
Although, the unprovoked physical harm is itself reason enough to question the person's attitude towards life. Bullies and spazes are difficult to deal with and if they find attention in someone elses harm they can cause a lot of damage. If you can avoid this person and maintain a "you got me, your probably just better than me" attitude towards them, its probably for the better.
As for cracking, eating a balanced diet with all the food groups is the easiest thing I can suggest.
RE: Mis-alignment of the spine
I think that spinal alignment could very possibly have an effect on cracking. But the mis-alignment might be more-so a precursor to the actual cracking. Strength training lead to more frequent cracking for me, and I have a slightly mis-aligned spine. So I think that there is a connection but is only noticed in the rehabilitation of the injury not at the onset.
When I used salmon oil to reduce my back pain, the resulted problem was far, far worse then when it had started. Since then I haven't used anti-inflammatories just out of fear of waking up and not being able to move. I think the pain is somewhat helpful unless its overwhelming, then other things like drugs might be necessary. Just this past week I had some excessive neck pain and a period of about two and a half days of constant dizziness. It was starting to worry me but then after a bunch of cracking the dizziness went away and my neck wasn't quite as sore.
RE: Is there an advantage to jointcracking?
Im curious of the effect on the interior cells within the bone, and the bones ability to produce stem cells. Perhaps more cracking leads to a higher number of living cells within the joint area. Oddly enough my left hip cracks a lot more than anywhere else, and it seems as though it is the area that most often is affected by arthritic pain. So I am wondering if that means there are more osteoblasts in the affected area, leading to more frequent overgrowth of the joint.
RE: Any supplements you know that help prevent cracking?
Ive been looking at large tree nuts like almonds, brazilnuts and pecans trying to consider their possible connection with ligands as well as other calcium bonded compounds.
this is not a joke. Ok.
