Hi, I was wondering if anyone can help me with a problem that I have been dealing with for some time. Everytime I extend my legs I hear a pop sound from both my hip area as well as my from my knees. It sounds like my hip and my knees are popping or snapping with every movement that I make.

Hi,
     Thanks for writing in. Popping or snapping with out any accompanying symptoms and no loss of function in the joint is normal and there is nothing to worry. But associated symptoms like pain, swelling, deformity if present then complete evaluation is required. The common causes could be arthritis, fractures and ligament tears. Is there any trauma preceeding this? If, NO then the cause for arthritis should be evaluated and treated accordingly.
Best.

Hi

I was diagnosed with a medial menicus tear according to my symptoms. X-rays taken but this had not revealed any injury. Based on my symptoms an Arthroscopy was recommended .
Symptoms:1. Orthopaedic surgeon did McMurray test - was not sure at first whether he heard the clicking sound in my right knee. He did this again and said "yes, i can hear the clicking sound" I did not hear the sound.
2. Bit of discomfort when I start running - Once warmed up it goes away

I then saw a biokeniticist. Also recommended knee procedure. They also gave me strenthening exercises, which I am still doing. Run twice a week and some runs are better than others.

However, My knees make a loud popping sound when I extend the leg (sitting on a chair and extending).The popping sound bothers me.When I put my hand over knee I can feel the "mechanics" of the knee.

I suffer no discomfort other than when I am running.

I am trying not to have the operation as I have heard some good and some about knee operations.
