28-yr-old Claims "Cracking" His Neck Caused a Stroke

A 28-year-old guy from Oklahoma popped his neck the other day, somehow tore an artery in his neck that led to his brain, and suffered a stroke. 

He could have died, and now he's 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.

CNN reports:

Josh Hader had a sore neck, so he tried to stretch it out, accidentally popping it. The next thing he knew, the left side of his body started to go numb.
He went to the kitchen for an ice pack but couldn't walk straight. "I kept walking at almost a 45-degree [angle] to the left," he said.
Hader, 28, from Guthrie, Oklahoma, had a serious stroke by cracking his neck.
Dr. Vance McCollom, who treated him at Mercy Hospital, said the stroke was life-changing but could have been worse.

Yikes! That's horrible!
