Simply stated, no. There's a reason that Chiropractic is a doctor-level degree. Never confuse activity with accomplishment. Moving something and making a noise doesn't mean that you've move the right thing or that it went back to the right place. over time, self-cracking can lead to significant spinal degeneration.
These kinds of forces include things such as falls, car accidents, repetitive injuries or any other type of physical trauma that can cause a misalignment. Chemical forces – Chemicals impact your muscle tone, and the alignment of your spine is dependent upon your muscles to help support it.
There’s no such thing, in many ways. Sorry.
Get adjusted by a Chiropractor on a regular basis till you’re pain free then go once a month.
There are plenty of stretches and exercises available with a simple google search for tight muscles, however, self realignment is not recommended. It is very easy to do more harm than good.
Depending on what’s wrong, realignment can be done via postural exercises and chiropractic adjustment. It’s too broad a scope to just say realignment. Scoliosis realignment takes months to years. A neck or back minor issue can take days.

Go consult with a doctor of chiropractic. He or she will perform an exam of your spine. He or she will properly adjustment any offending segments of the spine with ease and precision. You will feel better and better the more reps you get in at the chiro!

You don't. It needs a professional eye to do this.
Chiropractic adjustments are the quickest and most effective ways to realign your back.
I don't like the term "alignment". In my opinion treating the spine is about function. Everybody's spine is different and responds differently. The goal is to make the spine work well with in it's own structural parameters. The exception of this is diagnosis and treatment of Scoliosis in youth and elderly. In the young and during the degeneration of old age it is possible if the diagnosis is early enough to modify, slow down and in a few cases stop or reverse the scoliotic process.
It is not possible to safely realign your own spine if you do not have the proper training in spinal anatomy, spinal physiology, and biomechanics. Chiropractors have this training and can absolutely realign your back safely and effectively.
You can't. You need a trained Chiropractor. (I can't adjust myself. I go to my Chiropractor regularly.)
