onestr8: 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!
