Lateral knee pain under patella & pressure within joint when bent for a long time no pain bearing weight heard loud pop when squatted once what is it?
Kneecap slippped: Please see my previous answers on patellofemoral pain/ subluxation. Your symptoms suggest your kneecap cartilage is causing you pain... When you squatted your patella( kneecap ) subluxated transiently and 'reduced' spontaneously. That's the 'pop' you felt or heard. See your orthopedic surgeon for definitive diagnosis and treatment. Best of luck! ...Read more
While brushing my daughters hair I heard a loud pop from her scalp, why did it make a popping noise? She said it didn't hurt her at all.
Static electricity: Had to be static electricity discharge. If the hair was dry it can build up a charge and that small arc will make a popping sound. There isnt anything else i can think of that would give a pop. The hair is too flexible so had to be a small shock. That is my best explanation. ...Read more
See Doctor: First try nsaids like ibuprofen, aleve and you can even add some tylenol (acetaminophen) to help with pain. Ice the area for 20 min at a time and see if these help reduce the pain. If this persists longer than a few days, consider seeing your doctor for stronger medications to help. Typically most people get better within a few weeks of an injury. If not better consider further imaging studies to evaluate. ...Read more

Agreed as the : Pneumonic goes rice. Rest, ice, compression and elevation. Nsaids or tylenol (acetaminophen) may be helpful if symptoms warrant. If it doesn't improve in 3-5 days or if you are having pain or mechanical symptoms such as locking or buckling at the knee, you may need imaging studies (x-ray's MRI or both) and may require physical therapy or surgery. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Could be bad.: A loud pop in the knee after a sudden movement (especially a pivot or cut) raises red flags for a ligament tear and/or meniscus injury. If you didn't have any swelling, significant pain or instability in the knee after hearing the pop, i'd worry less. If you had swelling and pain right after the injury, see your family doctor! good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Six weeks ago I did the side splits without stretching and heard a loud pop. My hamstring has been tight since. Is there irreversible damage?
Hamstring: If it is still hurting 6 weeks after the injury i would suggest having it looked at. If it is a hamstring injury is in the muscle, they usually do well with rest and therapy. If the hamstring tendon has pulled off the bone, they will occasionally need to be repaired but most of those also do well with nonoperative treatment. ...Read more
