Knee joint popping

Common Questions and Answers about Knee joint popping

knee

The discoid meniscus can cause problems, usually a popping sensation with pain over the outside part of the knee joint. If there is a popping sensation, then conservative treatment consisting of exercises and stretching can be performed. If these treatments do not relieve the symptoms, arthroscopic surgery on the discoid meniscus would be helpful. Best.

Hi , my joint (knuckles, ankle, knee, hip,neck) have been frequently popping/cracking, though its no pain. But its very disturbing. Been having this for the past 1mth +. Any idea what causing this ?
It really matters what kind of noise it is in your knee and if it is accompanied by pain. If it is just occasionally popping with no pain, it could be nothing and some exercise like knee bends could strengthen your knee. On the other hand, it is painful too especially with swelling you may want to see a doc. If your knee is making a grinding noise for example it could mean that the cartilage is wearing down.
But recently I am facing that my knee joint is paining and feeling some noise form last year when I walk or stand for some while. But I do not lift heavy weight things or carry. I have visited number of doctors but all of them suggested calcium 500 mg once or twice daily for 2 to 3 months, but Still I have the problem and found or felt no improvement. I don't know what to do. I am a teacher, so I have to stand before white board to take classes for 2 or 3 hours daily.
An unstable knee joint can be the result of an injury or an underlying medical condition that causes the knee joint to give out on. It is also called as a trick knee. The major problem is osteoarthritis of the knee joint where there are changes in the smooth cartilage or through damage to the ligaments. This can be caused by an injured or torn knee ligament, such as a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the knee. The condition can be treated either by wearing a knee brace or surgery.
Sometimes when I eat my right jaw pops Really loud and does this for like five minutes what Causes this ?
The popping knee may be due to Discoid meniscus which is an abnormally shaped meniscus within the knee joint. The discoid meniscus can cause problems, usually a popping sensation with pain over the outside part of the knee joint. If there is a popping sensation, then conservative treatment consisting of exercises and stretching can be performed. If these treatments do not relieve the symptoms, arthroscopic surgery on the discoid meniscus would be helpful.

Last year I had a bi-lateral root repair(rt knee in Feb & then the left knee in July). I still have some mild pain in the right knee, even though I still can't squat or do some activities the pain is tolerable. But the left knee has me concerned. I did really well in therapy after the surgery & even w/the at home exercises once I was released from therapy, but now I'm having ALOT of pain. I feel a popping across the top of my knee when I straighten it(if on my back) & some pain.
Hi, about 3 months ago i think i overextended my knee while dribbling the ball in a game of basketball. Its not that much of an injury, there was no pop or swelling. I was even able to continue the game. There was pain when it happened, but it quickly subsided. I was able to walk and put weight on it. I played basketball sporadically for the following months and it did not bother me. Last week I decided to go back to running after a long hiatus.
but since then i cant go due to this right knee. starting to crackle when i move it like the joint is loose? i start my sock on my knee again hoping it will strengthen up. will i get my knee back to top shape again the cracking looseness feeling i feel. it happened to feel tight but the cracking/poping loose knee socket came back? i started drinking milk and taking some joint supplements. well as using a sock brace again. i want to go back exercising and running hard again.
A torn cartilage in the knee or a loose piece of bone or cartilage in the joint can do this. Once a joint is stuck in this way, it may need to be wiggled around to unlock it. This may also cause a pop.Finally, joints that are arthritic may crack and grind. These noises usually occur each time the joint is moved. This noise is due to the roughness of the joint surface due to loss of the smooth cartilage.
i get headaches, my joints have started getting really stiff in the last 6+ months which also only makes the pain worse. i have pain in every joint except my jaw but i have NO inflammation or swelling. my joints have started popping every time i move; big loud pops. bright lights and loud noises bother me, i have ringing in my ears. i have problems remembering and concentrating.

Meniscii too if torn or injured, result in joint instability—that is you are not confident the knee joint will take your weight. Often the person feels a popping sensation on moving the joint. It can also be tendinitis due to inflammation of tendon at the knee joint. Since I cannot examine you and know other related conditions you may be having, nor is a detailed history possible on net, I have listed the various possibilities that should be looked into.
Hi, Thanks for writing in. The knees are the most commonly injured part of the body. The largest joint, the knee is used for everything from standing up, sitting, to walking, running, etc. It's a weight-bearing joint that straightens, bends, twists and rotates. All this motion increases your risk of acute or overuse knee injuries. As you already have a history of trauma there is a chance of ligament injury or meniscal tear or tendinitis.
Problems with the patellofemoral articulation, the joint between the kneecap and the thigh, frequently present with pain going up and down stairs, and craqcking and popping in the knee. The cause is usually a combination of malalignment of the patellofemoral joint, quadriceps weakness or imbalance, and wear of the cartilage behind the kneecap.
Meniscii too if torn or injured, result in joint instability—that is you are not confident the knee joint will take your weight. Often the person feels a popping sensation on moving the joint. Pain worsens on walking. It can also be tendinitis due to inflammation of tendon at the knee joint. You will need X-rays and MRIs of the knee to find the exact. Treatment will follow correct diagnosis. Do consult your orthopedic specialist at the earliest.
this was about 3 months ago,although the joint is becoming more stable i have noticed what appears to be a flicking of the ligament/tendon on the outside of the knee when i bend it forward and backwards whilst the knee is turned so my toes point inwards.it also makes a popping noise.i saw a physio and he said it may be the ligament going over some swelling in the knee.
This also causes pain on bending the knee, a grinding or popping sound and a feeling of knee giving away on walking. This happens due to overuse of joint, excess weight on joint, muscular dysfunction, foot deformities causing wrong weight transmission to knee and some biochemical changes. First physical therapy is started.

I think what you're experiencing is called Runner's Knee (Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome) The knee is a complex joint. It includes the articulation between the tibia and femur (leg and thigh) and the patella (knee cap) and femur. The most common knee problems in running relate to what is called the "patellofemoral complex". This consists of the quadriceps, knee cap and patellar tendon.
Since then I always experience a small pop in the upper right corner of my right knee (if you are facing it) and a shocking pain that shoots up and down from the joint. The popping, if you put your finger on it, feels like a ligament or muscle sliding sideways off the bone. I have consulted an orthepedic surgeon who basically told me he can find nothing physiologically wrong with my knee and he says surgery will not help.
