Nitrogen bubbles. It is common for joints to crack. The noise is secondary to bursting of nitrogen bubbles. Without associated pain, it is very normal.
Arthritis. This could be a sign unfortunately of osteoarthritis. I would go see your pcp and start with physical exam, diagnostics with family history. It should be treated sooner then later.
Joint cracking. Cracking of joints is common and probably nothing to worry about. Ligaments can make these noises as they get tight rapidly when the joint is moving. Crackimg may be due to a tendon snapping over or around the joint. Or nitrogen bubbles in the fluid inside the joint may be rapidly brought into or out of solution when the joints are moving.
Tendons, ligament! Numerous causes for squeeky knees. Most common in your age is chondormalacia, which gives a "grinding" feeling to your patellae when arising from a kneeling position, which is caused by improper motion of the kneecap with "fraying of the cartilage." however, some gases can be released, tendons and ligaments can snap. One important question: do you have pain?
May be normal! Lots of people have joints that pop or crack when they move them, and most of the time if it's not painful, it's not a problem. If there is pain when they make noise, see a podiatrist or an orthopedic surgeon.
My ankles and knees pop and crack everytime I stand up or move from a seated position. Is there any way to reverse or stop the popping?
Strengthening. Working on flexibility (yoga) and strengthening the muscles around these joints can be beneficial. However, not everything that pops is necessarily a problem.
Painless popping. Painless popping is not a pathologic condition it is not a disease.
I have knocked knees is there any excersizes to align my knees? They crack each time I bend them or squat my knees and ankles touch when I closemylegs
Knocked kneed. This condition cannot be corrected by exercises alone. Inserts in shoes are used to help improve the condition but neither can cure the condition. Seeing an orthopedist to get evaluated and getting options for treatment would help you get the best corrective course.
Why does it take so little to hurt myself? I could move my arm the wrong way and it'll crack and it'll be painful for a wk, same with knees ankles etc
Complete physical. Your question is too broad to be answered. Seek a physician who will perform a comprehensive physical examination, blood and urine tests. You have multiple arthritic issues and you should consult a rheumatologist.
Mythighsdont touch, my knees do but when they touch it prevents my calves from touching and makes this ->) and cracks when bent, my ankles do touch help?
Genu Valgum. Genu Valgum is a condition where the knees are 'stuck together' or when a person is 'knock kneed.' This condition may arise from deformities stemming from the hip, the femur, or the tiba. It may come from muscular problems and weakness, as well as alignment problems of the bones and joints. Regardless of the reason, problems may develop as you get older. See an orthopedic surgeon.
What causes ur body to b stiff specifically after a workout? Why would my joints crack so much when I workout? Knee/ foot/ankle painful after wo.
When we. Exercise...especially without the proper "stretching" og our muscles prior to the exercise we "break" microscopic blood vessels and they bleed a very very small amount of blood! This is like an INTERNAL bruise!!! We call it a "charliehorse" or STIFFNESS! Your joints are YOUNG and have CARTILAGE which is LIVING TISSUE!! Same rules apply! Hope this helps! Dr Z.
I'm an average 17 yo male with a BMI of 22, and I've noticed my bones in my leg mainly my knee and my ankle crack? What could this be?
Common/normal. This is common and normal for a young man of your age. It doesn't predict any type of disease or injury.
Ligaments. What you are sensing is likely the ligaments as they move over one another. It has no medical significance.
