    Hey all, I'm a junior tennis player who plays tournaments regularly and at least 3 hours of tennis each day. About 2-4 months ago, I felt as if my neck always needed to be cracked by turning my head around. I thought it would die off shortly but then I realized whenever I woke up and went down the stairs my knees and joints around it would pop and crack. It didn't hurt, but it worried me. Now, my back always feels like it needs to be cracked. Sometime my wrists and my ankles do, too. I haven't visited a doctor yet, but I'm getting more and more worried. Is it too much strain on these joints from playing tennis or is it something else? If you know something please reply and it would really help if someone knew how to treat it. Thanks.

    Go see a doctor. This is too much to ask of a forum.

    Only based on your description above, it's obvious that something has changed in your body.

    When my patients tell me that all of a sudden things are cracking and creaking where they hadn't before, that's a sign to me that either something is off posturally, or there are some soft tissue restrictions that are compressing the area.

    Loosening up the soft tissue around those areas allows for things to "flow" better so to speak.

    So, if you're still worried, yeah go get it check out by your doctor.

    Perhaps its time to start looking into and starting a generalized flexibility program.
