Everyome has a tfcc: unless its been removed or there is a congenital difference. Cracking a joint is typically just making gas bubble appear out of joint fluid, but it can be a sign of tendon snapping or joint motion due to ligament injury. making wrist pop may feel better transiently. not y actually be better long term. The corrollary of " if it hurts dont do it " isnt if it feels good do it.. be careful

U have a long life..: ...ahead. Best 2 have it repaired. All U R doing is releasing it after it becomes trapped or impinged. This can decrease the quality of the tissue.
