Question: Does cracking your knuckles cause arthritis?
Answer:
The myth that cracking knuckles will cause arthritis has been perpetuated for decades. Although it might not cause arthritis, some researchers do think this annoying habit can cause joint issues later in life.

Most people like to crack their knuckles because it feels good. While it might stimulate nerve endings and stretch the joint, over time it may cause reduced hand function.
