A visit with your doc will help figure out more details. A physical therapist can offer a great deal of useful advice, exercises, and therapies. Massage may help as can a good chiropractor. ...Read more

I can crack my ankle really loudly. Why is that and is that bad?

I can crack my ankle really loudly. Why is that and is that bad?

Burst outloud: Typically cracking of the joints is caused by bursting of gas bubbles in the joint fluid. The gas is normally dissolved in the joint fluid. When the joint is stretched, the pressure is lowered in the joint. This lowered pressure causes the gas to come out of solution violently causing a "pop" or "crack". I know of no evidence that this is bad. In fact, it usually makes the joint feel better. ...Read more

Playing sport all together and my ankles have begun to crack all of the time, why could this be?

A few reasons: Ligamentous laxity, decreased joint space between the bones, previous injury...Hard to say definitively.

Continue workouts, but pay attention specific areas that are achy. If still concerned, see a foot ankle specialist for evaluation. ...Read more

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 have a pain in my ankle. Second time this year. Feels like it needs to crack back into place. Is it gout?

It is usually seen in people who have a lot of alcohol and red meats. A good evaluation by a physician or podiatrist can determine if your symptoms are from gout (unlikely) or from tendonitis, ligament laxity, or mechanical/functional cause. ...Read more
