Common Questions and Answers about Knee joint clicking

Avatar f tn I just found out when I bend my knee in there is a small clicking sound. There is no pain but I can feel the click vibrating in the knee area. Should I be concerned?
Avatar m tn Hello, The various possibilities for popping, clicking joints are a cartilage tear or rotator cuff tear that is rubbing with the joint, arthrosis or degeneration of the joint and arthritis esp osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. The exact cause can be found out only after x-ray or blood tests. Please consult an orthopedician or rheumatologist for that.
Avatar n tn Looks like a healthy knee. Sunrise/merchant view would be helpful to look at your patellofemoral joint. Are stairs your problem or prolonged kneeling? If so, then patellofemoral joint arthrosis. If you have locking/catching/clicking and pain on the inside/medial of your knee then likely meniscus tear. If the pain is bad enough, I'd see your PCP who can get an MRI to rule out other things such as meniscus, ACL, OCD lesions, PVNS, etc. Try nsaids, home pt, quad stretching/strengthening.
Avatar m tn Hi thanks for your reply to my question regarding the clunk in my knee joint replacement, it set my mind at ease Thanks once again.
Avatar f tn I have this clicking or may I say popping sound when ever I put weight of my left knee, or even if I am laying in bed when I straighten out my leg, it seems to make this sound. It really doesn't hurt, just a little uncomfortable. If I place my hand on my knee and swing my leg forward a bit, I can actually feel the bones rubbing and clicking against each other.
Avatar n tn Hello, The various possibilities for popping,clicking joints are a cartilage tear or rotator cuff tear that is rubbing with the joint,arthrosis or degeneration of the joint and arthritis esp osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.More harmless is clicking of joints due to relatively lax joint capsules, that allows more than a usual amount of movement. Try stretching your joints if you don’t like cracking them as often and pls do stretches that stretch the ligaments around those joints.
Avatar m tn Orthopaedic surgeon did McMurray test - was not sure at first whether he heard the clicking sound in my right knee. He did this again and said "yes, i can hear the clicking sound" I did not hear the sound. 2. Bit of discomfort when I start running - Once warmed up it goes away I then saw a biokeniticist. Also recommended knee procedure. They also gave me strenthening exercises, which I am still doing. Run twice a week and some runs are better than others.
Avatar m tn An orthopedic sx preforms a knee arthroscopy and debrides or cuts out the tear/smoothing the area. Popping,clicking and pain are symptoms of a tear. OTC anti inflamatories and elevating the knee reduces the swelling and pain.but will not heal the condition. If tear/damage is severe enough arthritis develops as menisci acts like a cushion between the knee joint.
Avatar f tn 1. If there is an obvious clicking noise in the knee, or your dog occasionally collapses on the affected hind leg, than is it highly probable that there is a meniscus tear. Your vet probably palpated (palpation = diagnostic touch) the knee and was able to feel crepitus (crackling) and clicking. 2. Maybe it was only a partial tear and not a complete tear. These can on occasion get better. Osteophyte formation can also stabilize the knee a bit. 3.
Avatar m tn Symptoms include pain along the inner or outer side of the knee, stiffness, swelling, and sometimes “locking” of the knee. A piece of torn cartilage may get caught between moving parts of the knee joint and causes the sound. A clicking sound may be heard when moving the knee. The pain may be worse when squatting. I hope this helps.
Avatar n tn I had arthroscopic surgery on my left knee almost 3 months ago. The medial and lateral meniscus were repaired along with scraping under patella for some arthritis.The medial was much more damaged than the lateral. Surgery seemed to go well. No pain at all. After some weeks with therapy the knee still feels unstable laterally. Front to back movement was very good, Pain developed on medial side of knee and the patella tendon when walking.
547181 tn?1255146506 I have noticed a strange thing after TX that some time when i bend my knee, a clicking sound came from knee joint (i used to have that sound before TX but that was very rare, now its became more frequent).Moreover some time that sound also came from shoulder joint. It seems that the fluid to reduce friction in my joints has reduced or become thinner. I want to ask if this happen because of Tx (Interferone/Riba) or anything else? has anyone experianced the same feeling or not????
Avatar m tn A bakers cyst is usuallt the result of a problem with the knee joint such as arthritis or a meniscal tear. Both cause increased fluid in the knee that can lead to a cyst. A physical exam is always done to check for medial or lateral knee pain. Popping or clicking in knee, this indicated cartilage tear and MRIs are not always full proof. The underlying problem is usually treated first and may require a diagnostic arthroscopy.
Avatar f tn So far my rehab has been going well, however today after sitting my damaged knee crossed over my good knee during a meeting, i stood-up and my knee has started clicking and feels really uncomfortable. Do you think that i may have indadvertedly caused some damage to the graft (I don't usually sit in that position...)?
Avatar m tn As a result of this, I now have clicking and grinding in my knee and it feels like all the ligaments are gone and there is friction from bones rubbing against bones; the tibia is rubbing against the femur without the cushion of ligaments. This condition has caused my quads and my upper thigh muscles to atrophy and I am in constant pain.
Avatar n tn The pain was really bad, both the front and back of the knee. I never experienced clicking/popping in that knee prior. But suddenly it was happening all the time. As the pain subsided the clicking/popping got worse. It has been a couple months, the clicking/popping still very much there. I tried working out again for the first time in months last Wednesday, and felt nothing during the workout or afterwards.
Avatar f tn tear in the meniscus is the commonest reason for clicking in knee.you better get MRI of your knee to confirm the diagnosis and then onlyplan the line of management. Dr Punit www.drpunitjain.
Avatar f tn So it is now almost 6 mths since i fell,there is still slight swelling over the joint,the knee locks/stiff when i get up in the morn or i have been sat for while,i can still not straighten it completely(painful and feels like something is stopping it),still can not turn over in bed,catches me on certain movements,although stairs(up or down) are not a problem. It does not give way but i sometimes get the feeling the joint is out of sync so i wriggle/twist it a little and that helps.
Avatar n tn I keep getting this weird crack in my leg when I move it. It sounds like a joint being cracked (such as knuckles, etc) but it's on the front side of my lower leg, slightly to the right, directly between the knee and the ankle. It will crack pretty loudly simply from me tensing the muscles in my leg and pushing downward (like when I get up after sitting). What in the world is this? There's no joint there so I don't know what's making that noise.
Avatar f tn 4 weeks later, I developed a low grade fever and sudden onset severe pain in my knee joint and muscle aches in legs. It was quite severe and though i managed to walk about, was unable to stand for long. There were also pains in smaller joints of my toes and fingers. On movement there were clicking sounds, but no pain in shoulder and wrist joints. I also had pain in the skin of my soles and fingers, a left side tinnitus and weakness in the muscles of my left hand.
Avatar n tn Burning Left Ear, Crepitus in Left Jaw, Popping sound on Left side, clicking when I open my mouth, The constant burning and tingling in my Left ear, sometimes wakes me up at night and I can sleep.
Avatar f tn Then that joint quit clicking but the next joint down was somewhat tender to the touch. The joint where the thumb joins to my wrist was unaffected. I also noted this thumb was 25% larger than my left thumb (especially in the section between top and middle joints). I take no medicines. Only recent occurrences: 1. root canal end of Sept after cracking a tooth, followed by a temporary crown being put on the day the click began. 2.

Avatar f tn I have had knee and elbow pain for years, possibly resultant of many years of horseback riding and injuries. About 12 years ago I had a bout of tendonitis in both arms ( I owned and walked 2 Great Danes daily and did lawn mowing, tree and shrub trimming). I have suffered with this is greater and lesser degrees over the years, depending on what I am putting my body through. About 5 years ago I began having pain and weakness in my thumbs.
