Crack Your Back, Knuckles, Toes, Knees, Hips, Shoulders, Elbows?

Be Still

Recommended Posts


My whole body cracks! It drives my husband crazy.

It's mostly when I haven't done alot of movement like when I wake up or watch a whole movie without getting up.

My legs hurt when I don't move them ALL the time, so I don't sit still very often.

In the mornings you could put milk on me and have me for breakfast.

I am always crackeling too. I also have sore joints my knees and elbows are the worst. Not sure what is up... maybe some day some thing will show up. I also have extreeme pain in these joints too, along with weakness. Love the humor in these posts,no sneeking up on any one, ha. So true!

my husband sings the little jingle from Rice Krispies to me, "Snap! Crackle! Pop!.... Lulu stretching!" or ".....Lulu walking!" or "....Lulu moving!" :ph34r:

It's to the point that if I don't crack knees, hips, ankles, wrists, shoulders, and neck--oh, big time on the neck---I hurt. I've just always been like this.....

Wait, this isn't something else I need to worry about? :ph34r:

Cute thread. One ankle cracks when I walk uphill and the other when I walk downhill -- weird.

I have read a bunch of theories on cracking joints:

Joints are too dry

Manganese is low

Ligaments too long

Ligaments too short

Scar tissue

Bones "out"

Muscles imbalanced, causing shifts in capsular fluid when they rearrange on movement

Subclinical or clinical inflammation

Rough places in bones that soft tissue is moving over

None of the above

Some of the above

All of the above
