Does popping your joints really cause arthritis? My ankles and knees pop very easily. Standing on my tip toes will pop my ankles, squatting down on the floor can pop my knees. My fingers get really stiff and often feel better if I pop them. Same with my back and sometimes my neck. I'm only 20...How much damage could this be doing? I seen a bone and joint specialist when I was younger and my knees and ankles popping were blamed on being knock kneed. They said both of my knees would to be broken and realigned to correct the problem...and I'm just not ready to do that.
Part of me thinks the popping cant be doing any good. But I've seen my doctor popping her fingers, so part of me thinks it cant really be that bad either!
