Joints crack due to loss of protein,iron and iodine. mostly when we do not get enough nutrients essential to our body. eating fish bones and drinking milk daily can cure this. Old people get this joint cracking a lot.

but sometimes when we these problems some times cannot get cured because it was too much.

What happens if you crack your joints?

Bits of cartilage are torn away every time you crack a joint. When you feel like you need to crack a part of your body you often dont crack the right place. The only reason you feel good is because there is a chemical release in the body that tells your brain "that feels good." the effects of cracking joints are injury of the ligaments surrounding the joint or dislocation of the tendons ( attachments of muscles to bones) which improved with conservative treatment. also studies have been shown that people who crack their knuckles have reduced grip strength than people who dont.
