So why does it lead to the fattening of fingers (the soft tissue)? It's very easy to tell who has a history of popping joints to those that don't from that.
I have cracked several times daily for most of my life and can find no effect from it. Can you expand more on this fattening issue, I've never heard of this.
Some Dr cracked joints on one hand daily for years and never on the other hand. Zero medical effects on the cracked hand. Pretty sure he won a Nobel Prize. I can't remember the whole thing because i heard about it years ago but thats the jist of it.
EDIT: I got curious and googled it. It's a parody Ig Nobel Prize which is a prize for frivolous scientific achievement. Donald Unger was the persons name.
Just compare the hands of someone who frequently pops their knuckles to someone that doesn't. Those that don't look more boney--the skin is wrapped tight to the fingers. Those that do have a lot more play in their skin (feels like a fluid inside). I'm not talking the joints themselves; I'm talking about between the joints.
