RE: Hypermobility versus clinical instability
I was told to keep doing it, hypermobility was better than hypomobility.
what's the difference?
Hypermobile - too loose. Your joints sound like rice krispies and you can bend them in strange directions.
Hypomobile - too tight. Restricted movement, pain.
RE: Crackable joints you're pleased you don't yet crack
Top of the spine, where it meets the skull. Done it once, by accident. Ouch.
RE: Possible correlation between double-jointedness and cracking
Well, my back is hypermobile (double jointed) and cracks basically every time I move it. shrug Doubtless you can crack joints that aren't hypermobile, but mine are and they crack.
RE: Hello! List of cracks
I've got a hypermobile spine. Every single joint in my spine cracks. My ribcage, shoulders, clavicles, hips and ankles crack, also occasionally my knees, elbows and wrists. My jaw cracks. If I stay too long in a bad posture, I occasionally hear a hissing sound, like bubbles moving. I can totally believe bubbles are the cause of cracking joints.
On bad days, when I walk it's like rice krispies in my spinal column.
The joint between my skull and spine once clicked and gave me pins and needles in my entire body, that was scary.
I can just about cause nerve pain in extremities by assuming bad posture.
I crack my knuckle joints in my fingers, mostly because it worries my wife.
