Do Your Joints Crackle or Pop? It Doesn’t Mean What You Think
When Joints Crackle and Pop
If you’ve ever felt your joints crackle and pop during exercise or even daily activities, you’re not alone. These sounds are common and certainly worth paying attention to, but do not mean your joints are “wearing out” or that you are sentenced to arthritis.
In fact, as long as pain or discomfort is not associated with these crackling sensations, then you’re almost surely fine. These painless joint pops are a sign, however, that your joints could use a little extra love.
Here are some strategies that can actually reduce or completely eliminate these crackles, ensuring you increased joint health for the long haul!
Good Or Bad Noise? How To Tell The Difference
Caution! If you experience pain, grinding, discomfort, or excessive strain during a movement or exercise then stop immediately! This is not harmless. You have pushed your joints too hard and need to scale back or stop completely. These are not the sensations we are discussing in this article and should be looked at by a medical professional as soon as possible.
The painless “Rice Krispie” crackles and pops, on the other hand, are what can be reduced and, oftentimes, completely eliminated. Thanks to GB joint prehab and mobility, improved joint health is easy to achieve!.
In fact, when adults first begin Gymnastic Strength TrainingTM, many of the exercises can result in some funny sounds coming from the joints. Within a few weeks of training, however, most students notice the sounds significantly diminish.
This reduction in joint noise is primarily due to the fact that because GSTTM mobilizes each joint from a variety of angles. As a result, your joints end up getting more blood flow and lubrication. This improves their health, reduces the creaking, and even helps to prevent age-related wear and tear!
For most students, what they thought was inevitable joint degradation due to their age was actually a lack of use! Proper movement and prehab will actually protect and care for your joints, keeping them healthy for the long term.
