Neck cracking feels good but may cause strokes, study says

Before you let that chiropractor crack your neck, consider the latest warning published in the British Medical Journal. A new study suggests that manipulating your neck with those quick jerks that feel so good may lead to serious complications. The study’s author calls cervical spine manipulation “unnecessary and inadvisable,” saying it can lead to an array of nightmarish issues, including stroke and tearing of the lining of the vertebral artery, which carries blood to the brain. Other experts insist the technique can be excellent therapy and that studies like this do nothing but instill fear in patients who are already suffering enough.
