"When we talk about medical complications, they can be really small, say one percent," says Marks. "But if it happens to you, it's 100 percent."

ODDS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!

Electric_Banana: I used to be able to crack my neck really loudly. Over the years, it just stopped cracking. Same deal with my knuckles. Could pop and crack them at least 3 different ways, but now they won't crack at all and it actually hurts if I try to crack them.

I always argue with my wife over whether or not it is bad for you. Many doctors say yes, others say no.


It is not bad, and a scientist cracked the knuckles on only one hand every day for something like 20 years to prove it.

His hand was fine.

Kind of just skimmed the article but I have read others on the subject, specifically a study conducted years ago by the Canadian Ministry of Health or whatever they have up there.

The key word is "violent" as in violent neck manipulations, the kind where the chiropractor forcefully and violently twists your neck beyond where most people could on their own. This can pinch arteries and potentially cause a scab or clot to form and travel to the brain.

Just casually cracking or popping your neck was not found to cause problems, at least in that study.

STOP THE VIOLENCE!
