Have a habit of popping neck? Beware, You may die soon

Stretching the neck sideways or rotating regularly can cause serious injury in the neck region. According to sources, neck popping has to lead to strokes in some cases.

Two major arteries are present in the neck join together to form the basilar artery which is responsible for blood supply to the back of the brain. Regular popping weakens the ligaments thereby leaving the arteries present in the area at a greater risk.

Neck popping can increase the risk of injuries inside the artery which can lead to blood clots. Although, blood clots dissolve by themselves but sometimes they can also travel and cause blockage in artery downstream leading to ischaemic stroke. In laymen language, ischaemic stroke means blood supply gets cut off in the brain. If left untreated, ischemic strokes can lead to death.
