My wrists crack when I rotate them as part of my warm up exercises. It doesn’t hurt, but should I see a Doctor?

Cracking or popping of the wrist, as long as it is not accompanied by pain is fairly normal. Occasionally our joints just crack for no obvious reason (although soft tissue in the joint is generally the culprit). In fact most people experience cracking or popping of some joint, as they age. However, if the cracking in your wrist is accompanied by pain, you should certainly see an Orthopaedist to determine the cause.
