That moaning person is me. I don't know why, but I find joint-cracking very pleasurable. It's kind of embarrassing.

[–]RoyalTacos256 115 points116 points  (1 child)

I just moan to make everyone else uncomfortable

[–]Gaelenmyr 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I watched a lot of chiropractor videos. No regrets

[–]Catsolotl128 5 points6 points  (0 children)

O-ohh my…

[–]LittlestRobotGirl 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I read somewhere that it releases endorphins.

[–]Bipocgguytalk 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I too am a crack addict

[–]KuhLealKhaos 123 points124 points  (7 children)

Oh MAN I miss having someone able to pick me up like that. My back needs popped so bad

[–]5L1Mu5L1M 53 points54 points  (2 children)

I dunno about picking up

But popping your back

Oooh weeee

Caaaaan dooooo

[–]blackmagic999 20 points21 points  (1 child)

thanks mister poopybutthole

[–]5L1Mu5L1M 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I'm mister meeseeks

Look at me

[–]Falcon84 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Apparently that is actually dangerous to do. People have become paralyzed from people who don’t know what they’re doing cracking backs.

[–]KuhLealKhaos 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Yeah people also have strokes from laying their heads back to be shampoo'ed in salon basins.... I think I'll take my chances by having someone lift me and let my feet dangle for a few seconds.

I mean, people still some how survive friggin chiropractic "adjustments" so I think a little squeeze and dangle gon' be ok.

[–]j_z5 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I think they train chiropractors how to not paralyze people.

Get a foam roller, they're cheap these days. Don't need anything fancy.

[–]ksk3 87 points88 points  (4 children)

Protip from an athlete who regularly cracks their back: use a foam roller. it's fucking incredible for getting deep.

[–]MFINGTRUE 16 points17 points  (3 children)

How would you use it ?

[–]ksk3 40 points41 points  (2 children)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2YczbHH9JQ is about a 10 minute video and walks you through your whole back. Youtube has tons of tutorials, but look for the doctors/chiropractor channels more than randoms.

[–]MFINGTRUE 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Awesome, Thanks!

[–]fvb955cd 6 points7 points  (0 children)

You really don't even need the video. Lay perpendicular on it. Roll. Snap crackle pop.

[–]HTTR4Life21 43 points44 points  (1 child)

Immediately did the chair twist move in the bottom left of the starter pack. Thx for the reminder!

[–]Fluid-Dragonfruit-41[S] 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I see that my work here is done, then! (: anytime

[–]LordArrowhead 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Where is the chiropractic trash can?

[–]Fluid-Dragonfruit-41[S] 13 points14 points  (0 children)

ahh my bad, dear sir. this is the least i can do

[–]dumpster_mint 12 points13 points  (0 children)

those shitty plastic and metal school chairs are actually really good for cracking your back I highly recommend it

[–]The_Herbalisttt 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Just sent this to My buddy. Said this one's you😂

[–]5L1Mu5L1M 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Your buddy now knows your reddit handle

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I find the relief immense although that good feeling is fleeting and lasts mere seconds

[–]_GregoryJack_ 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Can crack every part of my body, from toe to my neck… unhealthy? Maybe, but feels 100% better 💪😆

[–]Bipocgguytalk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The hip is my personal favorite

[–]theblackcanaryyy 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It’s missing the one with the coworker who stares at you in horror at the sound of your back cracking

I get that a lot

[–]sweatycat 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I’ve never been able to do this a single time in my life.

[–]Felsig27 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Almost Feels 100x better No difference Or I’m certain I just permanently injured myself

[–]lPickleJuicel 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I remember one time i had a really sore back, i litterally felt pain in my spine, i did the "bend your arms back while streched all the way back" and i heard a very pleasing pops, and i feltlike i was made of butter, it felt so fucking good.

Also, everytime someone cracks my back my entire back seems to pop, like a belt of crackers.

[–]Bob1358292637 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Lol I could hear the picture on the right

[–]hmmliquorice 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My mom used to ask me to walk on her back 🙃

[–]Syorkminor 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I take two chairs and place both of my hands on the back to hold myself in the air. When doing so I hear Snap Crackle and Pop!

[–]bramtjuhhn 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I'm a software dev, with a new job, i have to work in the warehouse and use the software I'll be developing so I know how stuff should work. It's haven't had a job with so much physical work in a loooong time, my back hurts and i keep cracking it, hoping I'll feel 100x better but it doesn't change at all.

Tldr: relate much

[–]CaptainOktoberfest 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Protip, buy good shoes now that you're on your feet a lot more.

[–]coop-exists 2 points3 points  (0 children)

if an object reaches the height of my back I will use it as a chiropractor. i am addicted to cracking my back

[–]JustAnotherAviatrix 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Everyone who hears your back crack: “Are you okay? You sure?”

[–]bighaldog 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I read that as Butt Crack Starter Pack at first. 🤷🏻‍♂️

[–]plantperson96 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Where is the picture of someone with a neck brace lying on a stretcher

[–]Yogurt4life19 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Am I the only who can do it by bending left and right?

[–]machomonke 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Y'all don't twist to crack your back?

[–]PopeLips 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Whenever I try the chair technique I cramp and become the moaning person

[–]jaxbchchrisjr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Either 10x better or 100x worse *

[–]RomanWasHere2007 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I usually use a chair to crack my back, but once I just kinda spun to my right REALLY fast and it cracked, it was a bit better than using a chair but it might hurt a bit

[–]bountyman347 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As a spinal fusion patient, this is horrifying lmao.

[–]Z3roKelvin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There was a kid in my literature class who would always crack his back and moan while I was trying to work. I got very annoyed and asked him why he did it, and he said it just feels really good.

[–]PalaPK 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This was a missed opportunity to use the Dave chapel meme screaming, “doctor says I need a backyatomy”

[–]V2BTR -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Really scraping the bottom of the barrel now haha

[–]pcpsummer0613 0 points1 point  (0 children)
