I hold mine firmly and pulll… It's more reliable, I find.
Have you guys noticed that temperature can affect how much you can crack your joints? Or at least, I think so.
A couple of thoughts I'd like to add to this before I sign off for today:
Can you generate pressure feeling in a new joint by learning how to crack that joint and keep cracking it for a while?
This would be an interesting find. If true, it means one of the following:
- the pressure feeling is imagined and a sign of a new addiction in cracking the learned new joint
- by cracking the joint it gets looser and thus more suspectible or sensitive to pressure build-up
If false, it can only mean that either a joint is sick or it is not. You cannot make it sick by tick-like behavior.
Why is it the pressure is felt more stronlgy in some joints than others? Why is it the most afflicted joint can vary over the days? Today I felt annoyed by my bent knee joints again which I have not felt for quite a while. Then again I had little desire to crack my spine today compared to most other days.
Maybe it could mean that once the joint is cracked, pressure builds in yer' fluids or something.
The wonders of psuedo-science.
Bleh, atm I'm trying to compromise my strongly anti-psyhcology beliefs with the fact that some disorderes and cures seem to happen/work. I wouldn't be quite that quick to diagnose it as a disorder, though it can be (very) annoying at times.
Maybe there is a physical pressure?
I always click my fingers and jaw (since I got braces, it seems to click more) and have recently started clicking my toes.
By 'clicking' I mean pulling at the finger/toe just below the first joint (above the knuckle, the last joint just hurts when it clicks) until it clicks. It's less antisocial (I think) and more fun . My jaw I just move in a certain direction. >_>
But yeah, jaw is a pain, but I honestly do feel a rpessure building up. 'tis weird.
Toes are just for fun. :lol:
I'm weird, I know. I'm posting on a community about joint clicking, for chrissakes.
Oh, just for laughs… I had OCD as a kid! lol, the depth of the coincedance!
Is hyper-flexivity (sp?) where you can stretch further? I've heard it on one of the posts...
