You name it, I can crack it

  • hi guys! new here.

    I can crack:

    my jaw on both sides;
    my neck (at full left/right rotation, then looking upwards);
    both shoulders;
    both elbows (as many times as I want - this is my favourite one to do because it makes a really loud noise and freaks people out :lol:);
    both wrists;
    both thumbs;
    all my proximal interphalangeals;
    all my distal interphalangeals;
    some of my metacarpophalangeals;
    my back (not sure which vertebrae :?);
    my left hip;
    both knees;
    both ankles;
    my right foot;
    all my toes!

    I'm currently trying to develop a rhythm from the cracks so I can whip it out as a party piece. I study medicine and have trawled the journals and spoken to orthopaedic surgeons, but they don't know anything about it! It's so much fun to crack my middle finger in a quiet lecture or exam hall and hear it echo.

    Any other crackers get stiffness that is only relieved by cracking? Such a relief…

    good to meet fellow crackers/poppers/clickers


  • Haven't thought about it, but I guess I'll give it a crack:

    Many, many finger knuckles
    All toes, probably all joints in all toes
    Neck, frequently and most often specifically to make non-crackers cringe
    (yes, I called myself a cracker; if you have a problem with that I'll come down off the porch and fight you, just as soon as I finish eating my possum and drinking my mason jar of corn liquor)
    Back (upper, middle and lower)
    Nose, as a novelty
    Hips (thought I'd lost it but I just did it by accident trying to crack my knee)
    Sternum, but always unintentionally

    …and when I can do my eyeballs, I'll let you know.

  • I crack pretty much everything too. If your knuckles are hurting, you could try these exercises:

    1. With your right hand, hold all 4 fingers in the left hand with it, and "mush" them together, possibly producing a crack or snap. Switch hands and do the same with the other hand. This straightens out those finger tendons.
    2. Lock the hands in a prayer like motion with all fingers "overlapping" and the thumbs connecting while pointing towards your face. Then lock all the knuckles simultaneously as you bring the palms together and the thums naturally point straight up. This loosens the knuckles in both hands without putting significant stress on them or tightening tendons.
    3. Right after doing this put both hands straight together, in another prayer like hand stance so each finger is straight up against the one for the other hand, including the thumbs. Then push the palms away so the fingers are still next to each other but the thumbs separate. This way the finger joints are effectively bent backwards, so that the whole tendons in both hands are loosened up. This may well not produce any pops or cracks, but isn't meant to. It's meant to bend those fingers back so they loosen up and the tendons are flexed/stretched/limbered.

  • I can crack:

    All of my fingers
    My thumbs
    My wrist - occasionally
    My toes - mainly just the first three
    My neck - I LOVE when I get a lot of crack out of it!
    My back
    My elbows - occasionally
    My knees - when they've been bent for a while

    I can also pop my jaw, which I don't know is a form of cracking, but it's similar. I don't do it as much, but it happens occasionally.

  • each finger 5 times
    thumbs 4 times
    wrists 4 times occaisonally
    elbows 1 each
    shoulders 1 spot but multiple x's
    neck 2's each side
    left jaw 1
    spine top to bottom
    knees 1
    ankles 2
    feet 3
    each toe 3-4
    big toe 2

    and other parts of my body i cant name, i use to be able to crack my ear lobes but cant anymore dont know why either.

  • I crack the following:

    -Upper Back
    -Lower Back
    -Fingers in 3 places each
    -Thumbs in 3 places each
    -Knees in 2 places
    -Each toe in 2 places

    My fav. would have to be my big toe. I can do it over and over again and it makes such a loud POP that I LOVE!

  • I can crack everything but my nose. (i cracked my jaw once, I didn't like it, same with sterum) I cracked my ears once too.
    It always shocks and amazes.

  • I can crack:
    all my toes- not as frequent in my big toes though
    all my fingers in 3 diff. directions
    knees- mostly unintentional
    one of my wrists
    elbows- rarely works
    thumbs- in 2 diff. directions
    so thats like 48

  • can anyone crack your ears

  • Ok ok ok, I will name something, umm… tips of your fingers. Very easy to do, Just twist by your nails.

  • Some guy here can crack his you-know-what and you haven't said that Laughing

    No way! How is that possible!?

  • I will confirm. It IS possible, though I don't know if is a really "cracking", but just like normal cracking, once you do it once, you can't crack it again for a while. Don't ask me what joint it is, though…

  • How does he go about doing it? :?:

  • I can crack soooo many things.
    Both ears, (SUPER LOUD and nobody can see how I do it. I dont know either. I'm the only one I know that can)
    My jaw.
    My neck.
    My upper back,
    lower back,
    that one bone that connects the bottom of the thumb to the hand,
    all my fingers,
    Both sides of my pelvis,
    My knees and all my toes. xDD
