I’m At A Fork In The Road. What Should I Do?

Many patients suffering from a long term health problem walk the “no” results road but still have a sense of not giving up.

Eventually, some find that path and end up in our Beverly Hills Wellness Center office. Many call it luck, coincidence, or some sort of intuition that guided them in a particular direction. How intuition works is being studied and can be seen in a paper: Intuitive decision making as a gradual process: investigating semantic intuition‐based and priming‐based decisions with fMRI.” Link Here:

When it comes to our health we may arrive at a serious fork in the road. We are confused and can’t decide which intuitive message is the right one. We feel stuck and can’t move forward!

We may need help connecting with that inner process to make a decision.

In Asian medicine this is a weakness in the Fire element. Supporting this element with Fire Element homeopathy is an effective approach to help balance that mind body connection in these types of situations.

I “Pop” My Own Neck, Is This Ok? – “Self Adjusting”

Pop My Own NeckMany people turn or twist their own heads to “pop” or “click” their own necks; sometimes because it feels good, sometimes for the “sound” effect or just out of habit.

“Did you know there are now soft tissue techniques called Tui Na?  No twisting, no turning, “cracking” or “popping” of joints; instead, you receive gentle, specific corrections to your spine and structural system.  Most are done with you standing or sitting.

The need to click one’s own neck is potentially a sign of an underlying problem.  Often the feeling to “self-adjust” is due to too much stress on the joints in the spine.  As a result the joints eventually become restricted and uncomfortable.  If this “self treatment” continues, an irritated nerve with pain may result!

When you twist and “pop” your own neck you are mostly ‘clicking’ either the wrong joint above or below the restricted one that needs to move properly.  Remember there are new ways to adjust the spine…

Old Healing = Joint Popping

New Healing = Soft Tissue Tapping


Why A Professional?

The proper procedure is to adjust the right joint in the right way (see image below).  This relieves the restricted joint and frees up irritated nerves.  In fact, the new healing style of adjustments does not involve the popping or cracking sounds anymore.  The new technique is of a soft tissue approach which the patient feels only a comfortable tapping sensation.

Is There A Problem Popping My Own Neck?

The danger of doing it yourself is you’re not specific to the correct joint that needs to be adjusted with the right amount of pressure.  This is guessing and will cause damage either immediate or over time.

When a joint is restricted or not moving properly, the joints above and below work harder to compensate for the lack of movement in the stiff joint.  So these joints are moving too much already and when you self adjust you are forcing them to move even further (see below).

Pop My Own Neck


This can, over time, cause stretching of the ligaments that support the spine and lead to instability and future problems.

Take a look at the spinal chart below.  What part of your spine are you trying to adjust?  What body parts are you affecting through your spinal nerves?



So What Should I Do If I Always Pop My Own Neck?

From what we’ve mentioned so far, you potentially have an underlying problem and are causing damage to the ligaments of your spine.  The first step is to take a look at your posture to prevent unnecessary stress on your neck and shoulders.

The next step is to assess the movement and function of the joints of your spine.  A doctor specializing in this area will recommend stretches, postural advice, and, if necessary, a course of targeted adjustments to restore the correct movement to your spine.
