If you crack your knuckles, you may be asking the same exact question as the title. As a knuckle cracker myself, I experience people telling me that it’s not good for you, and can harm your joints, and mess up your hands (which is probably why I have ugly hands haha). While it can be a bad habit, for me at least, I don’t know about the rest of you, no one really knows if it’s actually bad or good for you, I’ll be covering that for you today 🙂

OK, when you crack a knuckle, you’ll hear a popping noise, if you don’t, you’re doing it wrong (keep trying). This occurs because between your joints, there is a substance called synovial fluid. This fluid acts as a lubricant to reduce friction when your joints move. Whenever you crack your knuckles, nothing is broken or actually cracked, but the sound comes from a cavity in the fluid forming in between the joints. Cracking your knuckles doesn’t increase the chance of having arthritis as well. Dr. Donald Unger, a medical doctor in Thousand Oaks, California, decided to crack his knuckles on only his left hand for 60 years. Both of his hands are normal and the knuckle cracking didn’t affect them in a negative way at all.

So, if you are a knuckle cracker, just know that it isn’t terrible, and it won’t affect you in a bad way! I’m not making any promises though, so continue doing it at your own risk. BYEEEEEEEE.
