Causes Of Headaches When Neck Cracking?
Hello Kany, thank you for the question
Neck cracking is a habit in the form of manipulative action in the joint area, in this case the joint around the neck, which causes a person to feel a more comfortable sensation after doing it, so the habit will be carried out continuously.
The audible cracking sound occurs due to the negative pressure exerted when the joint is moved or pulled, causing the gas content in between the joints which also contains lubricant, forming a kind of microscopic bubbles which then make the cracking sound, like when we are about to open the seal of a soda drink cans.
This action causes the joint to expand and the joint fluid becomes more dispersed, giving rise to free joint movement that is felt as a soothing and comfortable sensation. However, this condition only lasts for 10 minutes because the joints will immediately return to their original position.
In several medical scientific sources, it is said that there is no significant relationship between the cracking habit and the incidence of joint inflammation. However, it should be watched out if the maneuver is done incorrectly, too tightly, too often, and too forcefully because it is feared that it can interfere with the structures around the joints, especially in the neck area because there are many nervous systems, blood vessels, and the cerebellum. Mild symptoms include stiffness in the surrounding muscles, pain, and pinched nerves. Severe symptoms have been reported to cause a stroke, although it is unlikely.
If you experience symptoms like the above, it is better to rest for a while, and in the future do the maneuver slowly and in the correct position until you start reducing the habit by means of good self-control. Although until now it is not clear the exact impact this habit will have, it would be better to prevent the possibility that bad things will arise.
So hopefully it can help you
