popping spine

hi everyone I have osteoporosis of the spine & hips as some of you know ... the other week was my birthday and my son ( bless him) picked me up & gave me a bear hug ..there was a lot of popping noise coming from my spine but no pain , now I know the theory is that the popping noise is just air being released from the joints but the question I have is this a good thing or not?.........should I be getting a lot more bear hugs ?

Re: popping spine

Happy birthday a bit late Myth!!! Mine is today. What day is yours? I don't know an answer to your question, but i would think if nothing hurt then and nothing hurts now that it was just air. Just remember it happening so if in the next few weeks or months you have back pain you can tell the dr. about the hug and popping. Personally i don't think a person can ever get too many hugs, so go for more, but tell your son to be a bit more gentle. We're off to the movies..have a good day. take care, phyllis

I have been researching the popping of the spine & found some say its a good thing and some say its not , I dont think anyone really knows but since theres no pain Im not going to worry about it.

Re: popping spine
