Myth on Cracking Knuckles

There is a myth that cracking your knuckles can cause arthritis or make your fingers grow larger; I was frequently told this since I had a habit of doing so.

  1. Hi
    I think I have heard this myth before. However, it does stop me from doing so. It’s always nice to know that I am not the only one who wonders about this myth.

    I totally agree. I have heard this myth before. I have grown up with my parents stopping me to crack my knuckles but it so addictive.
