Wrist popping: Some have normal popping as tendons or bones shift. The carpal (wrist) bones shift as one flexes/extends or deviates and some just have looser ligaments that allow their bones to move more. Others can have injury or fatigue of ligaments due to different issues such as trauma or inflammation. Sometimes pain has nothing to do with popping, just the same motion gives both.
