I agree with the other guy who said your chiro is stealing from you.

Rice Crispy Joints are usually a result of joint hypERmobility. Too much movement (ie: joint laxity and functional instability).

If this is the case, please don't let a chiro stretch your joints out more. Because that's all he's doing. He is taking already hypermobile joints to the very end of ROM, then applying a high-velocity low-amplitude shove PAST that end range. He is merely stretching those joints even more.

Do you stretch a lot? Ever feel like you can't stretch enough, no matter how much you stretch you feel like you need to stretch more? This is usally indicative of hypermobile joints and joint laxity/functional instability.

Re: Snap, Crackle, Pop

Either way, you need a functional assessment by a physical therapist who specializes in orthopedics (OCS behind his/her name) with lots of experience with athletes.

IF your joints are too mobile, functional rehab/training can tighten them up (but this takes a long time--months for people predisposed to joint laxity/hypermobility, and in some cases, may have little effect)

If it's something else, they'll be able to tell you and point you in the right direction.

Good luck,
Scott

Ooops. Didn't look at where you're from.

Get to a good sports physiotherapist. OCS is specific to the USA brand.

Get the beers in!

Yes, yes, and yes. That's good stuff to know, because I've always considered it being a lack of flexibility.
