Why do people even crack their knuckles in the first place?

“There’s both a mental and physical component,” says Suk. “From a mental standpoint, it’s almost a nervous habit for some people, much like drumming their fingers or biting their nails. I think to some degree, there’s a feeling associated with doing it as a mental stress reliever.”

Meanwhile, “from a physical standpoint, I think what this study shows is as you create space in the knuckle, you’re decompressing the joint,” says Suk. “In many cases, that can result in greater fluid movement in the joint itself, so your finger feels less constrained.”

Are some people just not capable of doing it?

Although it seems like some people can crack their knuckles without an issue and others can’t no matter what, that’s likely not the case. “If we understand joints to be what they are, everyone has the potential to crack their knuckles,” says Suk.

“The difference is that some people have a lower threshold of pressure for separating them, but others require much more force to create the separation.” Don’t take that as license to apply a ton of pressure just to hear the pop, though.

“There have been some reports that people can tear or stretch tendons based on how they crack their knuckles,”says Suk. “Some people pull, while others bend their fingers. Depending on how forcefully you do so, you can injure your hand.”
