Is It Okay to Crack Your Knuckles?
Ever heard the old wives' tale that cracking your knuckles will ruin your fingers when you're older? Or that it will give you arthritis?
It's all a scam! Well maybe not a scam, but I'm sure your parents told you these myths to get you to stop popping your fingers. I know mine did all the time. I'm 32 now, and my fingers are fine -- no arthritis. Yet.
This video sums it up quite well, and it even made me pop my fingers. Maybe people would tell you this lie because they can't crack their knuckles and it secretly annoyed them. Whatever the reason, it is completely false, so pop those fingers, toes or anything else that pops without worrying about any damage.
