What Happens When Your Neck “Cracks?”
When you move your head from side to side and hear your neck “crack”, it doesn’t hurt but it is loud. Should you be worried by this?
The sound you hear is called “cavitation.” Cavitation is caused by gasses in the fluid between the joints being released by a sudden change in the pressure on the fluid. Think about it. When you pop your knuckle, you 
can’t immediately pop it again. That gas needs time to build back up. This change in pressure can obviously be caused naturally and be simply incidental, just like when your chiropractor works on you. Excessive popping of the joints can also tell you that you have an issue which may require your attention.

Other reasons for excessive popping are over stretched ligaments, arthritis, or a locking together of the vertebra.
