Can constant cracking joints/bones be related to posture? i notice more of my bones crack as I am getting older

Hello -

It could be related to posture issues that then result in additional stress on the bones, then causing degenerative changes (e.g. arthritis).

Hearing the joints "crack" is a common issue, and arthritis in the joints can make this more common as you get older.
