SUNRISE presenters Natalie Barr and Matt Shirvington sent goosebumps down viewers’ spines after having their necks professionally broken on set.
Sydney-based chiropractor Dr. Cody visited the TV stars to relieve them of back and neck pain or joint stiffness.
Natalie, 55, sat upright and closed her eyes while Dr. Cody slowly began to release the tension stored in her body.
Then he broke her neck very quickly.
Natalie’s eyes shot open and she seemed startled and even uttered a profanity.
Dr. Cody, whose Instagram bio reads “The Best Crack in the World,” also took a dig at presenter Matt, 44, telling him his upper thoracic spine was “leaning too far forward,” which was likely a “postural issue.”
After the chiropractor broke Matt’s back, the co-host declared, “I feel like a new man.”
“I feel like I’ve just gained an inch in height.”
Sunrise and Dr. Cody shared a video of Matt’s treatment on Instagram, much to the delight of viewers.
Australian Olympic diver Sam Fricker commented: “Two legends.”

News presenter Edwina Bartholomew was also present and was accompanied by Dr. Cody looked after.
The chiropractor massaged her neck and had her open her shirt collar to allow better access and then tilt her neck to the side.
The mother of two relaxed for a moment before Dr. Cody moved her head lightning fast, making a popping sound.
Edwina screamed, “Jesus Christ!”
She covered her mouth with her hand and laughed.
This comes after Natalie gave a rare glimpse of the Sunrise squad enjoying a day of fun at the AFL grand final.
