Aye. Anything that cracks can or will lead to some form of long-term pain. Sure, most of arthritis and whatnot
is caused by plain longterm use, but cracking them just makes it strain more.
Cracking knuckles and wrists really are just a bad smoking (I plead guilty to that). Anyways..
if your worried about it, I suggest you quit cracking your wrists and knuckles, if possible. Don't wanna ruin
a hobby or potential career early, buddy. -Don

: Lately(within the last year or so), I've developed an obsession with cracking my wrists.
: Much like cracking knuckles. But my wrist cracking has begun to worry me because
: I have been told that it can cause conditions from early autheritis to CTS to tendonitis.
: I would be so grateful if anyone can tell me if there are any truths to these claims.
: Thank you so much for your help.
