Popping...: Popping is common and is not always associated with something being wrong. If you have no pain, discomfort or locking i wouldn't worry too much. Popping can be caused by fibrous bands of tissue sliding across the joint, cavitation from pressure changes in the joint and from cartilaginous structures in the joint. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Varies: There are a number of potential causes, and an exam can usually degermine the cause. There is a condition known as snapping hip syndrome, for example. A contracture of the tensor fascia lata, which is a tendon on the outside of the hip, can cause the hip to pop as the hip is flexed and extended. A slight instability of the hip can also cause it to sublux in and out as well. Thank you. ...Read more

If : If you have not had an MRI i recommend you request one. It sounds like you may have a tear in one or multiple tendons, ligaments, or meniscus. If so, you will need surgery to clean the knee out so to speak and repair the damage. In the meantime you can request a steroid injection for the pain and inflammation. Best of luck. ...Read more

Popping, : Popping, clicking and locking is usually from a trigger finger or in this case a trigger thumb. The tendon that moves the thumb is held inlace by pulleys or slings of thick tissue that hold the thumb down against the bone so that when you bend your thumb the tendon does not "bowstring" out away for the thumb surface. Think of belt lops on pants or the eyelets on a fishing pole that guide the fishing line and keep it in place. The tendon can get inflamed form wear and tear, injury, or just because it can. The pulley can get a little less flexible and take on stiffer characteristics when these factors get to a certain point the tendon may then not glide as well as it ionce did and you get triggering the range of symptoms can be pain , pain with a little click, no pain with a lot of click , even a t times locked down and not moving at all early morning or may be worse. A lot of times once you get going int he am the symptoms go away a hand surgeon will generally try to inject a trigger finger with corticosteroid to reduce the swelling. Splinting may not work in that the finger may get stiffer but for thumbs in those who do a lot of hand intensive daytime activity, a soft neoprene guard or splint that is flexible may help get through the day if conservative treatment does not work a surgical release may be offered. The assh has a good brochure on this problem ( see below). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Why does my wrist make popping sounds when rotate it? I did have a bad fall and landed on my hand a couple of years ago. It also hurts ocassionly.
Post traumatic: arthritis can occur any time after an injury involving the joint. When you landed on your hand, you may have caused a tear in the cartilage. Over time, joint fluid works into the cartilage and wears it away until you have bone against bone, a torn TFC, or tiny fragments floating in the joint which can cause popping. Xray or MRI might answer the question. ...Read more

May need an x-ray: Treatment for a jammed finger includes: rest, cold packs, & elevating that hand up to the chest. Motrin or Advil (ibuprofen) for 3 days helps reduce the swelling & pain. One can "buddy splint" by taping the injured finger to the finger next to it for a few days. If the pain is severe, the finger crooked, or the range of motion significantly decreased, a primary or orthopedic doctor can evaluate & do an x-ray. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
