Learn How To Stop Cracking, Grinding, or Crunching Sound In Your Neck When Turning Side to Side?

Lots of people get cracking, grinding, or cracking sounds in their neck as they age, especially if they're over 40 years old and starting to develop arthritis.

These sounds aren't dangerous, and if they're not painful, then it's there's really not too much to worry about.

However, cracking, grinding, or crunching sounds in your neck when turning your head can be a sign that things aren't moving optimally. If you're not already having neck pain, making habit changes now may help prevent neck pain in the future.

And if you ARE having neck pain, it's definitely time to make a change.

Use these tips to STOP cracking, grinding, or crunching sounds in your neck when turning your head side to side:

  1. Nod your head SLIGHTLY
  2. Think about turning chin toward shoulder, keeping your chin down as you turn.
  3. Imagine an axis running vertically through your head and neck.  Try to rotate around that axis without moving the axis.
  4. This helps align the joints of the neck better to prevent popping, cracking, grinding, or crunching sounds in you neck when turning.
