Does Cracking Your Knuckles Cause Arthritis?

iStockphoto/WiseBrothers

Growing up I always would crack my knuckles and neck. My mother and grandmother would yell at me and say “Stop doing that, you’re going to get arthritis!” I’ve heard that my whole life from people saying if you crack your knuckles you will end up with arthritis. My daughter Alexis is always cracking her knuckles and it drives me nuts and I always tell her she will end up with arthritis when you’re older.

Well guess what?! We were all wrong! It’s just an old wives’ tale! Actually when you crack your knuckles you’re  just air bubbles so your not messing with your joints at all. So if you are a knuckles cracker then this is good news for you! I’m still going to lie to Alexis and tell her otherwise because I can’t stand the sound it makes!
