Neck "crunchy" but no pain, possible inversion table injury?

About a year ago I used an inversion device and ever since then I've had a problem with my neck. The top of my spine/back of my neck, for lack of a better description, makes a very loud "crunching" noise when I turn my head to the left or right. I can hear lots of little bones rubbing together. It's worse upon waking. I do use an orthodic pillow at night and this helps a little.

I haven't had pain from it, but for the past few weeks I've had a bit of a headache and I'm wondering it's related to the noise becoming worse.

What the heck is wrong??



  • Perhaps its time to schedule an MRI. Mystery solved.
    Good luck
  • Probably a good idea to be checked out. There are lots of "normal" reasons for these sounds. But if you are getting headaches it's time to find out if there is anything going on.

    An orthopedist is probably a good place to start. They can do xrays usually in office. And if they think there is something more they can send you for an MRI or CT.

    Good luck and let us know what they say.
