What happens when we click our shores? Our current belief is that the sound is a wave of nitrogen flowing in the joints as they open. This can happen when we apply forces to our column together, but rarely has any benefit except for the slight and temporary relief brought by the release of endorphins, the natural painkiller of our body. Professional treatment (chiropractic, physical therapy) for misaligned vertebrae can rid you of this daily need to manipulate your spine.
Method 1 : Medical Council Recommended
1. Get an alignment with a chiropractor.
A chiropractor manipulates the neuromusculoskeletal system to bring any joints or sections of the spine back into alignment. Although the adjustment made by the chiropractor to be seen by some as a pseudosciência, is almost certainly safer than administering a chiropractic care at home without the supervision of a licensed professional.
2. Understand that popping your back can not help with chronic pain.
Many people click your back to help relieve pain. If you feel chronic back pain and is popping them to ease the pain, you are treating the symptoms but not the problem itself. Chiropractors, physical therapists and orthopedic surgeons use techniques that have been studied and played with good results. If you or someone else whose backs are chronic pain, visit a licensed professional that will not only treat pain, but will also diagnose the problem causing the pain and fix it.
3. Know the risks associated with clicking the back and neck.
Although most patients receiving administration of spinal manipulation do not report any side effects, there are risks associated with the act of snapping back. Doctors are concerned particularly with tear suffered in the lining of the vertebral artery in the neck that can happen when someone clicks it. This can lead to a stroke.
4. Know that none of the methods described here is necessarily recommended medicinally.
The methods here, although highly effective, are not recommended by doctors. Visit a licensed professional if you have any questions on how to crack someone’s back.

Method 3 : Raising Behind
- Ask the other person to cross your arms on your chest.
- Ask the person to breathe deeply 10 times.
- Go behind the person and hug, holding the top of her chest.

- Gently lower the person back
Method 4 : Lying On Floor
- Ask your friend to lie face down with your hands beside the body and the head turned to the side.
- Sit lightly on the person and both hands, palms down, on each side of the column, about 5cm away from each other.
- Starting at the bottom of the column, follow up the back of the person.
- Apply enough pressure with the palms of your hand until you hear a popping sound.
- Slowly go up the back of the person.
