Is it Ok to crack ones Knuckles/neck/arm/fingers/legs?

Is it ok for one to Crack their knuckles?
 I seem to see everyone doing it where ever I am.. is it the normal to do that? If yes where can I get classes on how to Crack your knuckles? ;)

 On a serious note is it ok for one to Crack their knuckles?

Knuckle "cracking" has not been shown to be harmful or beneficial. More specifically, knuckle cracking does not cause arthritis. Joint "cracking" can result from a negative pressure pulling nitrogen gas temporarily into the joint, such as when knuckles are "cracked." This is not harmful.

Eta; I seem to got some info here about cracking your knuckles.. and tips on how to start cracking them. ;)

Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Interesting..
 Just a side point I don't think one can judge from only one scenario.. I'm sure it depends on the person as well..
 Whether one did exercise and whether one ate healthy and...
 But interesting to know that as of now there seems no harm with cracking the knuckles.

What's wrong with just cracking them yourself?

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

I always get confidence when a study done with a whole 40 people can prove something wrong. That said I don't think it's a problem either.
