Wrists Popping?

Hey guys
This is not a "new" injury per say but it did start at the start of this season as I kept falling on my wrists and arms while in the park trying new tricks.

My wrists when moving around up and down make this loud popping noise. It is about as loud as if someone was obnoxiously cracking their neck or back. I can feel something in my wrists pop every time the sound is made and it causes me pain to flex my wrists in certain directions.

Here is a video of my wrist popping. Wrist Popping Sound - YouTube

Anyone have any ideas?

Emerica should make snowboard boots

Start wearing wrist guards and don't use your hands to stop your fall, it's okay to use your arms to absorb a bit of the impact, but not all of it. It's normal for joints that have been repeatedly abused, my ankles pop when walking up stairs, my wrists when I move them in a circular motion, my right shoulder can come partially out of its socket if I move it a certain way....I could keep listing things and I'm only 26, but none of it causes any pain or limits my activity unless I've recently re-injured that area.

I agree, nothing to worry about..

I sound like a bag of popcorn every morning caused by playing high impact sports growing up(Hockey, Football, Lacrosse, Motocross)

I have calcium buildups in my wrist that cause a great deal of pain.. I can move them to where they dont hurt by massaging the inflammated area.. I'm only 23 btw, just wait till I'm 40..
