Male Ankles Crack Walk Barefoot
19 year old male, and my ankles crack whenever I walk barefoot, but the don't hurt, what should I do?
Ankle crack: Often times it really is not the ankle joint that is "cracking" but the joint just below the ankle - the subtaylor joint. This is most often in patients with flat feet (heels are outside of the leg). A good arch support can help, sometimes a custom orthotic or brace. Sometimes surgery is required to realign the foot if that is what you have. See you local podiatrist and get to the bottom of this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Definitely call around. ...Read more
My ankles continuously crack when i walk or twirl them. It doesn't cause pain but it makes a loud sound and its been happening for a while. What is it?
Unknown: I don't believe anyone knows for sure what exactly causes certain joints in the body to crack or pop. Theories include snapping of tendons or negative pressure in the joint fluid pulling in nitrogen gas. If it begins to be painful, i would then suggest evaluation by a physician. Simply popping the joints in the absence of pain won't cause any long term problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
