sternum makes popping sound

My chest pops quite often and if I lean back or turn a certain way it will pop loud enough for everyone to hear. This started about a year ago and has progressively gotten worse. I see a chiropractor once a week but it still hasn't gotten any better. Is there anything that I can do to make this better? It's extremely tight until I pop it by leaning back real far, then it feels better temporarily. I have small shoulders, and I am a 38D size in my breast and I am wondering if this is what's causing it? I have gained alot of weight in the past few years. I recently started jogging though about 3 miles, 3 days per week and I sit at school all day and cut hair in the evenings so I am sure none of those things are helping....What's a gal to do?
