Knuckle-Cracking: Good? Bad? How do I stop?
June 6, 2005 4:32 PM Subscribe
As far as my Google-fu will take me, knuckle cracking is "probably not" associated with arthritis, and "maybe bad for other reasons" over long periods of time. I'm addicted to cracking my knuckles, and I'd like to get more info on the following: 1. Any new or particularly informative studies on the subject? All I can seem to find are medical studies using ridiculously few numbers of people. 2. Any more info on the non-arthritis side effects of knuckle cracking? 3. How on earth do I stop? My hands hurt when I don't crack them, and I do it unconsciously in movie theaters, operas, everywhere. Toes too.
