So I have a question regarding pain and linking it to a structural issue. Does the fact you are able to provoke an audible crack in your neck/back in the area and same side of your pain indicate some kind of structural problem w a joint etc. Is it possible a joint is damaged or there is some sort of instability there? If you can consistently cause a cracking sound or a feeling like something’s slipping by applying pressure in the painful spot If your neck while putting your ear to shoulder, can TmS or tension cause something like this? A facet joint problem or instability etc is said by many Drs to not show up on mri/ct scans! Any feedback on this would be cool!
