Cracking your own back, or self manipulation of the spine, that

is repeatedly performed may result in a hypermobility of the spinal

joints. This means that the joints are less stable and move

excessively, which may perpetuate pain and instability in the

spine. If you spine feels like it is tense and needs to be popped

or cracked, seek out a chiropractic physician or osteopathic

physician who specializes in manipulation of the spine in order to

have your back adjusted correctly.
