Crackling noises in neck after adjustments!!!!!!?????

I started seeing a chiropractor for tingling, numbness and pain in my feet and some back issues. Along witht he treatment, I receive a neck adjustment. About a week into the adjustments I started noticing my neck makes a cracking noise moving from left to right and also when tilting and stretching. This never happened prior to the adjustments. Does this indicate I now have a hypermobile neck due to stretched ligaments or is this just a normal the neck? My Chiropractor says this is nromal and it will resolve and get better, but I guess I have natural fear of doing damage and getting worse. I was even going to travel several miles to sit in on a Chiropractor Q&A to ask this question for a second opinion. Are there any D.C.s on this board to put my mind at ease???
