Should I be ‘cracking’ my own neck and back?

Well, we certainly hope you don’t ‘crack’ your own spinal joints! But if you are releasing them by having someone stand on your back, or twisting heavily or even leaning back on your chair we strongly encourage you to stop. You are moving your joints in a non-beneficial way and will accelerate joint dysfunction. What you’re doing to yourself may feel good, but it is doing you harm. Chiropractors are the only trained health professionals able to detect and correct joint dysfunction through mobilisation and manipulation techniques.
