RE: Hello! List of cracks
Until today, I didn't know there was a network of jointcrackers out there, but it will feel good to talk about this addiction with people that truly understand it. My girlfriend often looks at me funny when I try to describe everything that I can crack. The numbers in parenthesis following each body part indicates the number of cracks total for that part. I sure hope that the old saying, "you'll get arthritis if you crack your knuckles," isn't true. Enjoy:
cartilage on nose (2)
mid back between shoulder blades (4)
mid-lower back (4-5)
lower back by pelvis (2)
sternum-cartilage joints (1-2)
both wrists (2)
both elbows (2)
both thumbs at both joints and thumb/wrist joint (6)
both index fingers at three joints (6)
both middle fingers at three joints (6)
both ring fingers at three joints (6)
both pinky fingers at three joints (6)
right and left hips (2)
top of both ankles (2)
outside of both ankles (2)
both big toes at two joints (4)
both 2nd toes at three joints (6)
both 3rd toes at three joints (6)
both 4th toes at three joints (6)
both small toes at two joints (4)
Total cracks = 85-87
I do most of this several times a day, whenever I feel slight pressure building up in any joints. I should probably stop - any cures to this?
RE: All About BACK CRACKING
anonymouscracker - there is a normal inward curve at the lower part of your spine. the entire spine is S shaped when viewed from the side.
I have to crack my neck/midback/lowerback before I can fall asleep. horrible addiction, but it feels so good..
I have heard from a family friend (chiropracter) that it is harmful to twist your back, like jstephens4 mentioned the "exorcist style." But not too bad to crack it front to back (like leaning over the back of a chair, or pushing your back with your fists). I do the latter, and it feels great. I used to twist my back a lot, but I had a lot of sharp back pains (nerve). after I stopped, they all went away.
