    Default joint popping? good or bad?

    I want to get to the bottom this. This question has probably plauged my mind for years and years.

    Is joint popping (ie cracking nuckles, back, neck) bad for you, good for you, or does it make a diffirence.

    I can make my neck pop in really discusting ways and it would be nice to know if i should stop or not.

    I heard, when you pop em, that's releasing carbon (or summtin) out of your joints, so its good.
    So you broke down, trying to leave town, I broke down crying on your return. You left me feeling hopeful, I'll never see your face again. You made for a bad lover's liver. You stole all the covers and busted my head. You made me such an asshole, I wish we'd never met. I'm tired of being bored. I'm through with the headaches.

    I tend to believe this. I've cracked my knuckles (and even my big toes) for years and they don't feel the same anymore.

    I sound like a ricketty old man every morning when I get out of bed. In my first few steps, both my knees and ankles pop, then I usually get a few pops out of my toes. My body is falling apart....

    No study has shown that it causes any problems. The only thing that it tends to do is make your ligaments more limber. Therefore your grip might not be as strong.

    Personally if I don't crack my knuckles before playing a guitar I can't play well.

    I think if there was a health crisis about it, they would be prohibiting kids in school from ever developing a bad habit.
