Is cracking your neck bad?

I always do it and someone said it could hurt you?

Cracking it is not bad. People say that cracking your knuckles causes arthritis but that's a myth. Cracking your fingers or necks releases gas from between your bones. That's the sound you hear when you do it

It may be bad because when you crack your head the pockets in your neck pop relasing pressure and will lead to pain or arthritis, that's what i heard

Not true, the popping you hear in bubbles (nitrogen) between the joints.

It could be very dangerous if someone else, someone who isn't a chiropractor cracks your neck for you. Someone who doesn't know what they're doing could very easily, and accidentally break your neck.
Cracking it yourself...? I'm sure nothing terrible will happen to you. Been cracking mine from time-to-time all my life & nothing "bad" has happened to my neck. :)

It depends on how you pop it....... like yanking your head back is bad but maybe twisting it left and right would be fine hope this helps:)

No. This is how chiropractors earn their living.

Only if you can put 60 pounds of torque behind it when you crack it. Aside from that, it is perfectly fine and natural, if cracking the air pockets in your bones was actually bad, chiropractors wouldn't have jobs.
