A 28-year-old guy from Oklahoma cracked his neck the other day, as many of us do, and actually caused a stroke!
Apparently he tore an artery that led to his brain, causing the stroke.
He could have died, but he pulled through after wearing an eye patch for a hot minute, having the hiccups for a week and now re-learning how to use his left leg.
His doctor says if you want to pop your neck safely, just do it slowly, side to side. Don’t twist it sharply to the side, then up and back (like most of us do).
