Was lifting last night, and I was on my 4th rep of my 5th set of military presses...

Heard something pop, sort of like a bone cracking, right around my lower neck area. What could have it been? :noes:

Woke up this morning and it was just a little stiff, I can still feel it a tad when I turn my head side to side.
 

Mr. Pelham

I'm guessing that if you've done anything major you'd know right away. I'm going to say that you did the equivalent of popping your knuckles, which is pushing your finger in and out of the normal position and causing pressure on the fluid in your joints to reduce and form a bubble which pops. Now you don't have joints on your neck but the same would apply for the pressure created and essentially creating the pop that can be uncomfortable and even sore today.

If you're that concerned about it, see a doctor.

Nah, I'm near 100% certain it's nothing serious. It's just the fact I've never heard anything "pop" in that region before :noes:

The kicker would have been this morning, if I woke up and wouldn't have been able to move my head/neck.

What are you doing asking medical advice on a forum? Go see a doctor, point out where you heard the noise and explain any associated pain/stiffness whatever.

there are lots tendons, ligaments, bones muscles, etc to make noises in a lower neck area, and since none of us are you, or were there, i don't think you can safely assume we can diagnose it properly.

just saying :dunno:


we have experts here

I'm sorry, but telling someone to go to the doctors and get something checked out is far better advice than taking the little information thread starter posted and trying to diagnose him.


how much do you bench / squat / and deadlift again young lady?

there are crossfit girls out there right now that are warming up with triple times your max :nono:

macro knew more than my endrocrinologist

sorry man but even if the intertubes have good information, you can't do better than an in person diagnosis

plus if we were dishing out medical advice and somebody got fucked up, it could eventually come back on Faz-lay
