if your spinal column was rigid, then a vertabrae out of place would probably kill you. but it's not. the vertebrae are sandwiched between disks and fluids allowing you to move and bend and twist and walk and carry and all the rest of the actions you take for granted. when someone says the vertebrae is out of place, it means the bone has slipped

LOL tryska, you felt the bone in your neck that was out of place and didn't treat it quickly? You must be inhumanly tough, because when I have bones out of place in my body I tend to be in incredible amounts of pain. Like if you have a dislocated shoulder most people are told to lay down, and not move and are taken to emergency rooms, I guess though they were wrong and being pansies, because your freaking neck can have bones out of place and you still live your life very well.
"sometimes, by cracking my midback or around my hips it pops everything else back in place. as it stands now, this particular time, i'm most likely gonna have to have a professional perform a cervical adjustment, since it's not goign away."
When you move around bones you damage tissues severely, I don't see why this is hard to understand, you can't just pop everything back into place without causing extreme damage. Second of all you're saying that your chiropractor didn't help you, only relieved pain.
