I Crack My Knuckles Constantly

    It's My Need.

    After hours of typing or writing in college or at home, I can't help but relax my joints. And hence I constantly crack my knuckles. People around me don't like it, so I manage to not do it when they are around. Its not that I like it or anything, but its just a need I cannot let...

    Gas

    I read somewhere that cracking your knuckles is just releaseing gas in between your joints. Awesome. I am a girl and I just called knuckle-farting awesome, lol (though real farting smells, so it is not as awesome). So I'd just like anyone who didn't know that, to...know that...

    Don't

    I don't, but at Midnight Mass last year we were late so I sat next to a friend while my Mum and Nana found seats elsewhere. It was only then I noticed how much she cracks her knuckles, every five minutes she was at it, despite being told off by her mother each time. I'll admit I...

    I Am Double Jointed.

    I can bend my middle two fingers on both hands back til they touch. I swear part of this is from me popping my knuckles for half my life. My grandma and my mother both told me I'd get arthritis (sp?) from popping my knuckles. Later in life I learned about chiropractors and their...

    Bad Genes

    I started cracking my knuckles in middle school...actually, I remember the very first time that I did it.  I was on the track with this girl in my gym class, and I saw her crack her knuckles...I thought it was disgusting, but she said it felt really good.  I joked...

    I Don't Even Notice When People Are Watching

    It feels SO good!  The endorphin rush is so relaxing. I've been a massage therapist for 7 years.  I can crack 27 out of 28 joints in my hands about twice a day, plus resetting (and cracking) both sets of carpals in the wrists. And no, I'm not going to get arthritis.

    I Can't Stop

    I used to do this when I felt like I needed to somehow relax the joints in my fingers.  Now, I constantly crack my fingers all the time to the point that it is now a bad habit.  The knuckles of my pointer fingers have actually started hurting now from cracking them so...

    I Don't Know Why I Do It.

    I've cracked my knuckles for as long as I can remember.  I also pop my back and my neck.   I try not to do it as much but half the time I don't realize I'm doing it until I've already done it.  It seems like the more I do it, the more I need to do it.

    I Can't Help It Either.

    It started when I was a teen.  I'd be writing something (notes in class more often than not) and my finger's end joint would basically get stuck.  I'd have to crack it to get it to work normally again.  Now I crack the end joints of my fingers allllll the time (by...

    Just A Habit

    I cracks my knuckles on average eight to ten times to day. Usually do it once when I wake up, once when I go to bed and once at about noon. The other times I do, just occur sporadically throughout the day. I don't even know why I do it, I just always feel the need to for whatever...

    It's Bad

    I pop my knuckles probably 20-30 times a day. I mostly do it unconsciously. I pop my neck sometimes, I pop my hip, my knee, my elbow, my back. It's pretty bad. Sometimes my ankles too. And definitely my toes.
