Knuckle Cracking Ireland

hypnotherapist cork

Hi, my name is Paul Hunter. If you’ve been googling “knuckle cracking” to find help to stop doing it, you’ve come to the right page.

I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist, CBT Practitioner and Life Coach. For the past fifteen years, I have been helping the people of Cork overcome their bad nabits with great success.

First of all, what is knuckle cracking? To understand this fully, let’s have a little anatomy lesson. In between all joints in the body is a thing called synovial fluid. The purpose of this fluid is to stop the bones rubbing together and wearing down.

Gas bubbles build up gradually in the synovial fluid. When you “crack” your knuckles, what’s happening is that the gas bubbles are”popping”. 

Many people who crack their knuckles either

  1. Get a bit worried that they may be doing damage to their joints and want to stop for that reason, or
  2. Have a partner who is grossed out by listening to it and insist that they do something about it.

If you’ve made a decision that you want to stop, I can help you. If you’d like to find out more about my Habit Reversal Therapy, click on the button below now to arrange a FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION.

Why Cracking Knuckles Is Bad For You

There was a study conducted in 1990 into knuckle cracking and one of their questions was “does knuckle cracking reduce grip strength?” They produced scientific evidence to suggest that depending on the frequency and intensity of the cracking, that it does indeed directly cause a reduction in grip strength.

Another thing that this study cleared up was the misconception that knuckle cracking causes arthritis. In this and other studeis, there has never been any evidence to suggest a greater risk of arthritis.

If you crack your knuckles because of tension or stress, there are better ways to alleviate tension or stress. Click on the button below to find out how I can help you.

I used to do very loud knuckle cracking. My girlfriend told me her stomach churned every time she heard it. Eventually I decided to stop. Your help was invaluable. Thank you.
