'Cracking": your neck probably resulted in some "slippage" of the vertebrae one upon the other! In most cases this resolves with ICE and rest ...(Sometime HEAT is better and sometimes ALTERNATING HELPS! In any case if your symptoms continue A Chiropractic physician may help but GET A REFERRAL FROM YOUR PCP TO A CHIRO THEY work with!!!! Hope this helps! Dr Z
