It's just releasing trapped air between joints
It isn't good or bad for you
It's great when you don't do it too much
My dad keept saying that it wasn’t good for my fingers. Since he works at a hospital one day I went with him to his job. I went and asked a “hand doctor” and he said: As long as it dosent hurt there should be no problem cracking fingers.
It's a bit bad and you should try to avoid it. What you're doing is basically releasing gas, which is harmless, but it links to some build up issues. Doing it will worsen the problems (can often become a habit tic), and it's not unusual that it eventually becomes painful. Some people think it can build up to arthritis, but there's not much scientific support for it being that severe.
It's not a consequence of playing CSGO. It's associated with things like drinking a lot of alcohol, smoking, and doing manual labour.
Ive been cracking my back, my wrist, fingers, my neck for forever and i'm all good, somedays when i crack my neck my whole spine shivers i think i might die soon :x
This has been broken down into details already, but all that sound is, is gas being released through the skin, making a "cracking" sound. It isn't bad for you personally, but over-repeated use of every single finger of every single joint can cause some structural damage overtime.
The causation of arthritis is purely mythology-- more akin to an "old wives tale", if anything. If your joints feel locked or stiff, then cracking the fingers is actually healthy in this situation... as the gas releasing helps straighten the joints back in place. Cracking your fingers all of the time, every time without stiffened joints is where the issue lies with repeated use.
nobody care theres WW3 already so we all have only 5 years +/-
one man only cracked his left/right hand for 60 years and there was no difference between the one which he didnt crack
All the doctors I've talked to says it's not dangerous, but in my personal experience my joints hurts a lot if I don't crack them, so it may be a addiction thing. I would not recommend starting if you haven't, and if you're early in, I'd recommend trying to stop before it's too late.
