Is cracking your fingers bad?
***I heard that it makes your fingers fat if you do it a lot.***
***its very bad for your fingers... you can get arthritis in your hands...***
***yes, eventually you can get athritis***
***I heard it was bad to crack them...***
The most common form of arthritis is caused by genetic predisposition, NOT from cracking knuckles. The research that has been done has found NO definitive link between the two. The most common long-term effects of regular knuckle-cracking are a loosening of the ligaments, and a minor reduction in hand strength.
Captain assassin once again...sigh :-/...is right
it DEFINITELY does NOIT cause arthritis and doesn't make your fingers fat, but it isn't particularly good for you either.
Plus I have been doing it for about my whole life and my fingers are still thin, I don't have any pain whatsoever.
Cracking your fingers is NOT bad. I have been doing it for years. It is not necessarily beneficial, but it is not bad. And it is a myth that it causes arthritis. Trust me, my sister has arthritis in her fingers, but the doctor said it was not because of cracking them.
I watched something on tv once that talked about myths and the truth one question was does cracking your fingers and/ or knuckles because arthrits .. to set the record straight IT DOES NOT
I asked my doctor once if cracking my fingers was bad and if it would make them hurt or get fat and she said not the cracking sound is just from the fluid in your joints moving around.
I have noticed after doing it for over 10 years, that my joints hurt when it is cold outside. Sometimes when it is warm too that happens.
I heard that it makes your fingers fat if you do it a lot.
plus, the sound creeps me out
I heard it was bad to crack them... so ya! but I don't know bout the arthrits thing...
its very bad for your fingers...
you can get arthritis in your hands...
yea... when you get older your fingers will start to hurt occasionally
Why do they hurt? And how do you make the pain stop?
Finally! Someone else who knows this!
I don't know but I do know its gross
yes, eventually you can get athritis
Thanks Imma try not to do it again
