The neck crunches, because the destruction of the intervertebral discs occurs. As a result of the fact that the intervertebral discs are destroyed, they become covered with cracks, and they lack hyaluronic acid. Why are they destroyed? Because most of our compatriots do not know that they have flat feet.
Any woman by the beginning of the second trimester of pregnancy always has physiological flat feet of pregnant women. This diagnosis exists in the 11th revision of the WHO diagnostic list.
And not one of our gynecologists tells pregnant women that they will have physiological flat feet during pregnancy, unlike European doctors who always warn about wearing insoles .
For two million years of human existence, nature has formed the arches of the feet: transverse and longitudinal. These are shock absorbers in the form of a ligamentous apparatus of 56 foot joints. Pregnant women always develop flat feet and there is a hard blow. The normal stride is 1.6g. Starting from the second trimester of pregnancy, a stepping beat from 2 to 3g. And the weight of the uterus, fetus increases, and flat feet increase, because the center of gravity is shifted. And this shock wave rushes upward, destroying the menisci of the knee joints, the hip joint and the intervertebral discs. The higher the intervertebral disc, the thinner it is, because the shock wave reaches a lesser extent. There are seven cervical vertebrae in the cervical spine, and their task is to make the shock wave on the way to the brain die out. As the impact intensifies, the discs begin to flatten in an attempt to contain the impact, reaching a rocky density. Nature comes up with such bone outgrowths and salt deposits and seeks to surround the intervertebral discs in an attempt to save - and this is the reason for the crunch. And people go to chiropractors, masseurs and think that the problem will be solved - no, it will not be solved until the root of the problem is cured.
Pay attention to how many of our compatriots go with hallux valgus when shoes wear out unevenly when the feet are turned outward. And the stronger - the greater the deformation, the more the spine is destroyed, and in women, the more dangerous it is, because the blow with flat feet also falls on the area of the genital organs.
A little strange answers of doctors ... In the first one does not explain anything, and in the second about the crunch of spasmodic muscles ... again without an explanation of the mechanism, and it sounds doubtful that muscles can make such a sound ...
Let's just say that in my small world it is actually not a crunch, but the sound of collapsing cavitation bubbles that are formed in the synovial fluid that fills the joints of the joints. With a sharp turn of the neck (or when we crunch our fingers), the volume in the spaces between the joints increases sharply, and since the space is closed, gas bubbles (like nitrogen) are formed in the liquid, which immediately burst. Why it is so loud, no one knows for sure, but the fact that the vertebrae are linked to the skull, and in a solid environment, sound is transmitted very well, adds to the sound power with the neck.
Returning to the first comment, it is worth noting that we can consider completely different things to be the same "crunch". Sometimes, it is a sign of illness or injury. Such a crunch will most likely happen every time you move, while the bubbles burst only after a certain time, during which the gas has time to dissolve in the liquid.

A crunch in the neck can be present in a patient suffering from osteochondrosis and in a healthy person.
If the crunch has accompanied a person since childhood and does not annoy him with anything, do not panic. It's ok.
When there is tension in soft tissues, especially muscles around the spine, they begin to roll and crunch when moving. If it were bones, a person would fall from painful shock.
Spasmodic muscles crunch.
It started 5 days ago. She turned her neck sharply, and it began to hurt, the ointments do not help.
