In brief: Evaluation
There are many possible causes of painful popping of the knee (chondromalacia patella, meniscal tears, intra-articular loose bodies and instability of the joint secondary to ligamentous injury) and the appropriate treatment will be determined by the diagnosis.
A visit to an orthopaedic surgeon should give you an answer.
