Ankle popping a year and a half after ligament tear. Should i be worried?

Popping: Popping sounds could be from several reasons but worry only if there is pain or instability. Popping isn't necessarily bad, but if its associated with you tripping more oftern, constantly spraining the same ankle, or annoying pain that won't go away, then definitely see a podiatrist to get reevaluated. ...Read more
