Ok, i luv 2 crack my joints, i crack my shoulders, wrists, double jointed in all my fingers, neck, elbows, jaw, but y dud my hip crack wen i walk?

Cracking: First , there is no such thing as double jointed. Flexible , yes. Double jointed , no.

Either way, seeing your orthopedist will dispel more myths and help get you the answers you need. And try spelling better - it helps . Good luck. ...Read more
