Knee pop: If you have popping grating or creaking sounds in your knee, at times it can be physiological. Pathological causes are meniscus tear, knee arthritis or an injury to the ligaments. To make it better you can use RICE: Rest, ice, compression and elevation. Proper mobilization and rehabilitation exercises will also help. Finally the best advice is to see a orthopedic surgeon. I hope it helps .
