Knee grinding or: Crepetance, is by itself, of no unique significance. This is present in asymptomatic knees as well. If you and your doc are satisfied with your x-rays, and know what you are treating, and responding appropriately, I wouldn't worry about this grinding too much. Be sure that your treating physician is aware of this finding though, just to be safe. ...Read more

Discharged from physio as they don't know what's wrong. Pain in right knee when squatting or extending also crunching/grinding sound. Help?!

See/talk to a doc: This may be patellofemoral syndrome, where altered biomechanics create abnormal tracking and "grinding" of the patella & its cartilage when moving in the groove of the end of the femur. Try a knee brace that supports the patella. Strengthening the quads & gluteus medius are important, + IT band stretching. If I can help, join my care team and virtual practice at

Inflamed: Something has become inflamed in the knee, especially if you feel warmth or see redness. Resting your knee and applying ice for 10 minutes three times daily will probably only help a little so I would plan on seeing your primary care physician. Some orthopedic offices have same day urgent appointments. The doctor will need to determine if it is a cartilage or tendon problem. ...Read more

Osteoarthritis: I wonder if you are or were involved in a lot of contact sports in your youth. Osteoarthritis or oa can cause the grinding symptoms that you are describing due to degeneration or breakdown of cartilage in the joint and loss of menisceal fluid that helps to lubricate the joints. An x-ray would be helpful to get an idea of how your joint space looks and to look for osteophytes (bony overgrowths). ...Read more
