Post Back pops a lot

My back pops when I stretch left and right. It pops a lot. What does this mean? Can a chiropractor help this? My back doesn't hurt other than a lower back discomfort when activity level is high. No paid when it pops.
Appreciate any feedback, I am concerned. - 48yy

I would see an orthopedic doctor before a chiropractor just to be on the safe side. I am not to fond of chiropractors

Thanks, JohnnyBravo. Hope you are feeling better. Don't think I'll put off seeing a doctor any longer.
