The “cracking” you feel in the knees, shoulders, jaws happens every day. But, are you concerned about it? It’s been said that it’s nothing, but if it happens often, maybe it’s time to visit your doctor.
Shoulders: The sound of “popping” in shoulders is associated with age. If you are less than 35 years, it is a sign of instability and stiffened tendons. It often happens in the workplace, but with several months of physical therapy it can completely disappear.
Elbows: If your elbow “squeaks”, while you move and hurts, or it can even “block”, there is a chance that a piece of bone or cartilage is “walking” on your wrist, the size of a grain of sand. To prevent damage, it is best to make a medical examination.
Palms: Parents advised not to crack the knuckles, because our hands will tremble when we grow up. However it is not. With stretching of the fingers small pouch with a protective fluid located in the joints gets rid of the pressure and gets a relief.
Ankles: The “popping” of the ankle has several explanations, but usually it is from old injuries, such as sprains or similar. Weakened tendons hold our foot so hard that creates greater efforts. Very loud “popping” and pain on the side of the heel is possible if you interrupt the “Achilles’ tendon.
Elbows: Why your knees crack when bent. Because bending the whole weight falls on them and they “protest”. The best solution to this problem and to preserve the knees with body exercises that strengthen the muscles around the knee.
