In brief: Only theories

Why joints sound like Rice Krispies Cereal (snap,crackle, and pop!) with no pain & normal functioning is a topic of debate.
If your back does not hurt and you have no other symptoms like numbness, tingling, weakness, loss of bowel or bladder control, then don't worry. Try stretching before hand and "get the kinks out." first. My kiddo can twist and all her vertebra would pop sequentially! Ew!
