Should You Crack Your Own Neck?

We’ve all done it – rolled our neck from side to side until we hear that satisfying crack or pop.

Did you know that cracking your own neck could actually be making your neck tension or neck pain worse?

If you’re not supposed to crack your own neck to relieve tension, what can you do? First, you should see a specific structural chiropractor to make sure there’s not a serious injury.

Even if it’s not serious, regular adjustments can relieve tension and pain.

Second, recognize that tension in the neck is a result of tight or weak muscles, which in turn are a result of abnormal structure. Either way: a visit to the chiropractor is necessary.

Visit our website to read about some other reasons you could be experiencing neck tension and how to get relief!

Prevention of a Bulging Disc is Key!

If it’s impossible for you to avoid some of the flexing movements that can lead to a bulging disc, there are some key ways to prevent the injury even while at your desk job.
  • Exercise regularly. Strengthening the trunk muscles helps stabilize and support your spine.
  • Keep good posture. Remind yourself to keep your back straight and in a neutral position, especially when sitting at your desk for long periods.
  • Take breaks to avoid sitting for hours on end, and remember the old adage: lift heavy objects with your legs, not with your back!
