Does cracking your knuckles cause arthritis?
Old wives tale. It does not cause arthritis. It is just annoying to some people, like me;)
Cracking your knuckles does not cause arthritis. It can only result from a negative pressure that pulls nitrogen gas into the joint. However, if cracking is accompanied by pain, then there could underlying abnormalities of the joint. See http://www.webmd.com/osteoarthritis/guide/joint-cracking-osteoarthritis for reference.
im pretty sure it does.
I have heard it does but I am not sure...I crack mine all the time.
I'm cracking now, and it's a habit. But i will say, it hurts to do it now, not like that release of euphoria like before.
yes it does
