For about 10 years now I have been clicking my back, like I do my knuckles! It doesn't cause any pain, but if I don't click my back my muscles get rather tight. My friend suggested I get it checked out, my GP says there's nothing wrong, what do I do? Another friend told me it is because I am a former dancer, but I have no idea to be honest!
When I do click my back I have to sit down on a chair, bench or even the floor just to relive the tension. No matter where I am I HAVE to click my back. I pulled a chair out this morning just to sit and click my back in my mother's lounge, she says I should get it checked out, but I already have! Also, earlier today I was in the shopping centre and needed to click my back, there were no chairs, so I sat on the floor and did it. A friend said I was embarrassing, and I got a lot of strange looks from other shopping and even some people asking if I was ok, and needed and ambulance.
I really don't like this, why do I do this? Does it do damage to my spine? And what can I do to stop this? Or do I just suffer with drawing attention in public? I would like an answer as soon as possible!
And thank you for taking the time to read this!!
