    So many of my joints pop and I’ve been cracking my knuckles since before I was 10. Is it bad for me? Am I going to get arthritis or something?

    I don’t think there’s any research. I was watching  a YouTube about that a cuople of months ago and I think the only research they did was some doctor cracked knuckles on one hand but not the other for a huge number of years and didn’t have arthritis from it. That said, there was a decrease in overall hand strenght and grip. So it may have an effect but they really don’t know I guess.

    Really, @envirotodd? I’m surprised there hasn’t been more long-term research and even more surprised that someone would keep that up for so long!

    I’ve cracked my knuckles for probably 20 years.  My hands are definitely not as strong as they used to be with grip.  I can’t open the jars I used to, which makes me very frustrated.I don’t know if they’re related though or if it’s just that I’m not in my twenties anymore
