I guess I started around 10 years old, after watching my Dad pop every joint in the human body. He was (and I suppose still is) the undisputed master.

If you don't pop your joints, does it annoy you when those that can...do?

I've become pretty creative, in this endeavor. I can actually pop my wrists. One good crank downwards on the 'ol wrists, and they snap like a thick branch. LOUD. Most satisfying.

Knees? Please. Best feeling "pop" ever. Grab the cap right on a bent leg, cup it tight, then rotate straight. SNAP! Neck? Shove your lower jaw to one side, hard. Yeah, baby. Back? Grab the sides of a chair, and crank over as far as you can to one side, then the other. Mmmmm. Feeling limber, after every pop? Yessir. Elbows? Sounds like the crack of a good break, in pool. Hold your arms out straight, then bend them babies back and forth, with some muscle tension. Ooh yeah!

Fingers? Big upper knuckles are best by bending either up or down. Middle knuckle? This is best by twisting. Lower knuckle? Pressing is the best route to take on these. The exception on the middle knuckle is the thumbs, which work best my "snapping" the joint, by placing your index finger on the tip of your thumb, and snapping your thumb joint out.

And then there's toes. They pretty much follow the same rules as fingers, but the big toe works best if you snap it at a sideways angle. For one more good pop, you can bend it down, them twist. That'll get the middle joint.

Pop a hard dick? This takes some doing, but if you press down while trying to bend it outwards (away from you) in half, you'll get a nice pop, down low. It hurts at first, but with practice and acclimation, it's pretty cool.

Here's to all the joint poppers in this crazy world.

I pop everything that will pop...knuckles, neck, back, elbows, knees, shoulders, hips, toes, ankles...
Link Posted: 10/2/2011 11:26:58 AM EST
Fingers yes, everything else no. I tore some tendons in my knee, so now even thinking about "popping"anything just makes me cringe. And those that do their necks every time they do that I picture some B-class hollywood assassin scene and wait for their body to fall to the ground dead.

I started out popping my knuckles.

Then I got into tae kwon do.

Now I have pops in places where I didn't even know I had places.

Knuckles, toes, ankle...yup.

Neck popping is almost an OCD thing with me.

The dick thing... that was a new one for me.
Link Posted: 10/2/2011 11:40:28 AM EST
Knuckles and knees. Straighten your leg until it starts to bend the other direction, then snap it back. Ahhhh.

I have a PHD in popping...

I can pop my ribs along my sternum. All thanks from some a-hole horse that tried to send me into a tree. Wait try? He did.

Not intentionally. But as I get older, things just pop on their own.

I'm all about expanding the scope of popping. Turns out, you don't even need bones!

I have to crack my shoulders due to rotator cuff injuries, otherwise they lock up and I can't lift my arms above my head.
Other than that, no, the sound gives me the heeby-jeebies.

I constantly do it. If there's a part on my body that can make that noise, I'm going to do it. It drives the wife crazy, so I've been doing it even more lately.

Although my knee cracking is unintentional (and painful).

I forgot about the ankles. Best way on those, is with a sideways crank of the foot. Ahhhhhh.....

Knuckles. All the time.
Link Posted: 10/2/2011 11:58:19 AM EST
Only my knuckles.

I really don't know what physiological implications there are for popping joints, good or bad, but I don't generally have any need
to pop anything. I have excellent range of motion and flexibility and I see no point in picking up yet another habit.

Link Posted: 10/2/2011 12:07:03 PM EST
I only routinely pop two things in my body; not by ambition but because they pop on their own if I do a particular movement.

My right thumb locks itself at times and pops when I bend it into full range of motion. My chest pops whenever I expand/stretch it usually during exercise or right before.


Everything else is a rare incidental.
Link Posted: 10/2/2011 12:25:39 PM EST
No i do not pop.
Link Posted: 10/2/2011 12:31:01 PM EST
I crack my knuckles and my neck pretty regularly. I try to do the chair twisting to pop my lower back too, makes it feel better. If it's been a while since I've cracked my knuckles, I can make a fist and if I do it tight enough my knuckles will crack.
