Back Cracking in Young Children
I was wondering if it was normal for a young child’s back to crack frequently. My younger son’s back cracks (not a single pop, but a whole series) several times a day when I pick him up. It has done this his entire life (he’s just over 2 right now). Since I have rarely heard my older son’s back crack the frequency of my younger son’s concerns me. He is otherwise in perfect health and is actually very advanced in his motor skills. He is also large for his age, at the 100th percentile for stature. I appreciate any insight that you can give me on this.
