If you’re looking for back pain relief or neck pain relief, you might
try stretching to pop your joints. Upon being stretched, it’s common
for joints to make a cracking or popping sound. This noise may sound alarming,
but it’s harmless. This sound is commonly heard during treatments
from a chiropractor.
As you’ll learn by watching this video, your joints are lubricated
by synovial fluid produced by the synovial membrane. Stretching causes
the bones that meet at the joint to pull apart slightly. When this happens,
the synovial membrane also stretches, causing a drop in the pressure within
the joint. The reduction of pressure causes the gases within the joint
to become less soluble, which causes the formation of bubbles. It’s
the formation of these bubbles that causes the popping sound.
