Hello,

mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

mysticdoc :

This is a good concern.

mysticdoc :

There is no firm evidence suggesting that cracking your knuckles will cause any damage to the joint on the long run.

mysticdoc :

The cracking sound comes out due to the release of the trapped air in the joint.

mysticdoc :

This is not supposed to cause any damage to your joint.

mysticdoc :

Best wishes,
