If you are not having trouble, you do not necessarily have to do anything. The most. Ommon cause of creaking in the knees is a softening of the cartilage underneath the knee cap known as chondromalacia, which if it is not causing trouble does not have to be treated. Thank you for your question.

If there is no pain involved, it is probably nothing of consequence in a 22 year old.
