I never could imagine there would be a forum on joint cracking, but i am very glad that its there and i found it
I feel all those Nev has mentioned. Plus i also feel pain moving my neck around till i release it by various clicks(or explosions :D) around my neck. More so when i get up in the morning, the urge to crack my neck is immense. Especially if i dont get good sleep and was tired the previous day.
i am 28 year old and have been cracking my neck for couple of years now.
off late if stay relatively still for some time like, reading, looking at tv or pc, then i have to crack my neck for free movement else i feel this restrictive pain. the most i like is using a table and my hand to push up my neck side ways. i keep doing small and big cracks on the neck all day!.
But i must agree the crack is sweet music and the release after click absolute bliss.
But really worried these days as to what it might lead to and i am getting more and more needful and addicted. Please help me on this. Will it damage my neck or it already has? how bad is it, should i use all my will to avoid this guilty pleasure? Enlightenment really appreciated.
