Is It Bad To Crack My Own Neck?

Healthy TV Episode 078

Do me a favour and comment below if you crack your own neck – no judgement 😃, I totally get why you do it – it feels good, right?

And when your neck is stiff, sore and tight, whatever helps it feel better is a welcomed relief… But let me guess:

You’ve wondered: “Is this actually good for my neck?”

In this week’s Healthy TV episode I cover:

  • Why your neck feels stiff, sore and tense in the first place.
  • Why it feels stiff, sore and tight again about 20-30min after you crack it.
  • What’s actually happening when you crack your own neck.
  • How to solve the problem once and for all!

The short answer is no, it’s not good for your neck…

You’re definitely better off breaking that habit by doing some specific mobility exercises for your neck.
