Is It Safe to Crack Your Own Neck?

Patients sometimes ask us if it’s safe to “crack” or “pop” their own necks. You’ve probably been there; you’ve been sitting at your computer all day and your neck feels stiff and tight. Then, you roll your head and you experience a relieving “pop” in your neck that makes it feel better. But any manipulation should be carried out by a professional chiropractor.

Our experienced Stoke on Trent chiropractor warns that forcefully moving your neck beyond its normal limits can potentially cause damage and that is crucially important that ONLY a professional health provider performs manipulation techniques.

If you’re experiencing neck pain or discomfort then a good chiropractor can conduct a thorough examination and if necessary, formulate a safe treatment plan based around your specific needs.

Cracking your own joints may feel good in the short term, but all manipulation should be carried out by a qualified professional after an examination has taken place.
