Joint cracking is not a sound we want in our audio files, right? But it happens, often with the slightest gesture or ankle shift. 

Experts may disagree about the cause of popping, snapping, or noisy joints.

They do agree that it is harmless, unless accompanied by pain, redness or swelling. They also agree that cracking your joints on purpose does not cause arthritis. They also agree that more movement in your daily life may reduce the cracking.

Do your joints snap, crackle and pop?
