Question Clicking Knees

Hi. I've had a 'clicking knee' for years. My knee makes this noise when I just walk around. It doesn't happen all the time, but since I've started my Leslie Sansone 'Walk Away the Pounds' in-home walking program, it seems like my knee is clicking all the time now. There is no pain though. Do any of you ladies have a knee that clicks, know what causes this, or how to relieve it?

My knees pop. It doesn't hurt. Sometimes I can feel that it needs to pop-- kind of like a knuckle cracking, and if I bend my knees I can ususally do it.

I don't know why exactly. Does mine sound similar to yours?

My knee clicks too. It is called crepitus. You can look up the causes on google. There are a couple things that can do it. Mine is just a ligament popping over the bone, similar to if you cracked your fingers. For me, it is not a terrible thing, and I shouldnt really worry about it. It can cause arthritus later on in my life, but other than surgery there isnt a way to fix it. Mine is not where it needs that. I keep saying 'mine' and 'for me' because it can be caused my a number of different things, and therefore can create different problems depending on its source. If you are worried about it, I would see an orthopedic doctor.

I hope this helps!

PS I have found as the muscles in my legs are getting stronger my knee is cracking less. I believe that the muscles are taking over for the ligament. Your body always reacts better when it is in shape.
