Well Cacking our knuckles Some people thing it causes arthritus, but actually the sound is caused by a various form of gasses that are being let off by the cracking sound, cracking your knuckles can also make your knuckles swell or puff, So it doesn't do anything to your BODY but it does do something to your knuckles!
