In brief: Safe, if no pain!

Safe, if no pain! if you have pain, you are only hurting yourself, you may be injuring your self.
As a wrstling coach, my players freuwntly strech their backs for flexibility. It works, but there are "pops'" generally safe! you are simply cracking the knuckles of your back!".
