Nothing,it just feels good to pop and stretch your fingers,its also said it suppsto give you arthritis earlier in age, but i don't believe that.

Nothing really. All that cracking noise is, is air trapped in the ligaments and tendons 'popping'

its a bad habit, really. i do it all the time and i wish i didnt. i really dont know what it does, ive heard that it gives you arthritis, and ive heard that it doesnt harm you at all. all i know is that its loud and sometimes it hurts.

It's a fact that if people that do it as a habit do it up until their adult hood it can later cause arthritis.
