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 more

I sprained my ankle 7/4/15,never saw a DR, (no insurance),I can walk on it but still have pain,n when I make circular motion,it cracks.wat do i do?

This far out, home remedies may not be as effective (ice, brace, rest) and you may be able to find a foot/ankle specialist that can see you /treat you for a reduced fee. 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 more

Left ankle cracks quite a bit when I walk all of a sudden, doesn't hurt but annoying feeling. Anything to help it from cracking? Food, supplement or?

Varies: It varies a little based upon the cause of the "cracking". If it has some degree of instability, it can help to strengthen the ankle. You can buy a resistance band and strengthen your ankle and it may potentially help. Also, don't hesitate to be seen if you are having enough trouble with it for an accurate diagnosis. Supplements unlikely to be if any benefit. ...Read more
