In brief: Hard to say

I would schedule a followup appointment with your doctor just to ensure everything has healed in a good position.

In brief: Yes if you broke it

cracking the back by yourself unless you are a chiropractor. or a message therapist is not a good idea in a good healthy back nerveless in a broken one, even if you feel better after, stop before you cause a major neurologic damage and it will be too late
