Cracks in a racquet

Does anyone know how to test if there is a crack in the frame of the racquet? And what is the impact of playing a cracked frame?

Cracked frame will probably get worse as you string the racquet. I had a cracked racquet and it kept getting worse and worse with every string job.. Finally I sent it back to the manufacterer and got a replacement free.

I was wondering if playing with a cracked racquet would affect the consistency/accuracy of the shot, or worse still, cause injury?

Most likely. Similar to alignment problem of your car. Even 1/2-degree different camber will cause unbalance response for right and left, and uneven tire wear for long term use, although that half-degree difference can't be easily detected by your naked eyes.
