Could having cadaver bone be causing my neck to crack frequently?

Could having cadaver bone be causing my neck to crack frequently?

Doubt it: Cracking has nothing to do with whether the graft is cadaver or not. It may have to do with the way it is positioned in your neck and the way your adjacent structures relate to it, but there is so much chance you would have had cracking had it been a different graft put in.

My neck and upper back is always very stiff. And I turn my neck a lot to "crack" my bones to losen the stiffness. Will there be any bad effect for such habit?

No : There will be no issues with this and you are just self manipulating your neck causing a temporary reflex relaxation of the muscles. Keep on crack in'.

My body is always hurting. My arms, neck, back, knees, and shins. My bones always crack, especially my back and knees, should I be worried?

Aches all over: The most common cause of muscles aching all over in an otherwise healthy person is fibromyalgia. There is no cure for this condition, but fortunately it tends to go away on its own after 10-15 years. There are, however, medications that really help the symptoms. You should see a doctor to discuss if this is what you have and what you can do to help these symptoms.

Neck pain and Fall: A number of things could have happened; most importantly, have yourself evaluated by a qualified physician you trust, which should probably include imaging with x-rays and an possibly an mri. From our distant perspectives online it is hard to determine what the exact reasons are, but if you still hurt and had appropriate trauma, find a local doc... And be careful!

Dizzy alot yesterday had a panic attck but now today had headaches and the back of my neck feels sore and almost weak try to crack but bones hurt?

Interesting: Your doctor would need alot more information, and perform a physical as well as check your vital signs. Dizzy, panic, neck sore, headache, and weak make me wonder about hypotension; neurocardiogenic syncope; and migraine, but there is no way to be more sure without a careful history and exam. Please dont hesitate to seek help!

What could cause your breast bone to crack?

What could cause your breast bone to crack?

Rib-breastbone joint: Cracking a joint moves the parts of the joint, with the cracking noise coming from cartilage surfaces sliding, from movement of a little air-space from one place in the joint to another, or from some other non-traumatic event. A person with no joint pains before or after cracking a joint is probably not damaging the joint. A doctor can evaluate pain or stiffness associated with cracking noises.

I have bone spurs in my neck, a friend told I should not take calcium as it would cause them to grow more?

Calcium: Is involved with bone mineralization. Theoretically too much calcium can translate to more robust mineralization leading to bone spurring. 500 to 1000mg/day calcium is reasonable as your kidneys clear excess.

My girlfriend has chronic neck pain and cracks her own neck. It makes a very loud pop, and sometimes causes "shocks" down her arms. Is what she is doing safe? If not, what problems could arise?

My girlfriend has chronic neck pain and cracks her own neck. It makes a very loud pop, and sometimes causes "shocks" down her arms. Is what she is doing safe? If not, what problems could arise?

Possible arthritis: Popping neck may be ok since many do it without ill effects. But, "a shock down arms" means that the pop irritates her nerves going to the arm. Look up "brachial plexus" on the web. I worry disc injury or herniation. It is unclear if she has arthritis. I would keep back and neck straight and supported most of time. Avoid awkward position reading or watching tv. Would quit popping. See doc for xray.

Neck discomfort: This is usually due to poor neck posture. Repetitive poor posture will make you neck feel, "out of line". Stretching can help. So can active range of motion exercises regularly, maintaining proper posture, using a good supportive cervical pillow.

I'm not sure: what you're question is. Can you re-submit and ask an actual question, please? Then one of us can properly answer. Neck pain can often lead to headaches; the sound may not be related to any underlying problem. Please see your doctor if you haven't already and as I said re-submit your question.
