Can You Get Arthritis from Cracking Your Knuckles?



“Will I get arthritis from cracking my knuckles?”

This is a very common question, urban legend and myth and a topic that has many people perplexed and worried.

No, cracking your knuckles will not cause you to have arthritis in your hands and fingers later on in life.

A recent study concluded that “in persons aged 50 to 89 years, a history of habitual knuckle cracking does not seem to be a risk factor for hand osteoarthritis”.
