The only caveat would be that sometimes a joint that is frequently popping becomes hypermobile because it is trying to compensate for another joint that is not moving.

If you are concerned, it would be worth a visit to a chiropractic physician to see what's what.

Hey Avery thanks for writting back. I'm just curious. What can a chiropractor do for me? Will it solve the popping permanently of is it something I'll have to keep doing? With all the stretches we do. Does that eventually make the popping go away?
