Cracking Your Knuckles

Tips for ParentBy Onlymyhealth Editorial Team / Apr 17, 2010
Is cracking your knuckles a sign of arthritis? Dr Dhananjay Gupta tells us how the urge to crack knuckles is due to a tick or the urge you feel to do something which you would not do normally. It becomes so serious that you do not feel satisfied unless the knuckles are cracked, after which there is a feeling of satisfaction. Learn about the various studies done on this phenomena and how it relates to the problem you have or someone you know has. It may not be about arthritis disorder and may actually be due to some sort of anxiety disorder the patient is suffering from.
