Elbow Needs to Crack

October 11, 2012 at 01:56 AM · Hi everyone,

All day today, my left elbow has felt like it needs a good crack. When I extend it all the way strait, it's get that feeling (there's really no way to describe it, but I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about) that it really needs to pop! However, there's absolutely no pain, no decrease in mobility, ect. Does anyone have any advice? I don't want to force it to crack, but I really want it to feel normal again. I've ruled out tendinitis because there's no pain.
