    Knee clicking is nothing to worry about (unless you get swelling, pain, collapsing of the knee or it gets stuck in one position and needs moving around to get loose again). Almost everyone has experienced this. It is not related to arthritis.

    Hip clicking is usually caused by tendons snapping over bone as you move around. Again this is usually nothing to worry about, although sometimes the tendons can get irritated. To avoid this some strengthening/stretching work usually helps.

    It is possible to get arthritis young, but clicking of your joints would not be your main complaint!

    Both. My school didn't have its own field, so we shared the football field with the boys. Then they got a small patch of turf opposite the school gym, but that was mainly for skills practice.
    Then make sure you get a good set of astro trainers to protect your knees. I've got a trashed cruciate from Rugby, and turning hard on astro does NOT help it. Hockey is not a good sport on knees, but its bloody good fun

    People always say that joint clicking/cracking causes arthritis or is due to arthritis, but that's not really true. All clicking/cracking is is bursting a bubble of lactic acid that has built up next to your joint. If it just happens naturally and you're not forcing it, then there's not really anything to worry about.

    I get that every single time I bend my knees
    I'm glad I'm not alone. I went the doctors over it as it sometimes hurts, he said me for an X-Ray even though I'd told him it wasn't my bone but my cartilage. Of couyrse the results came back ok, but I've not heard nothing from him since... and that was two years ago :mad:

    Thanks for clearing that up. Not sure strengthening has or would make any difference to me - I'm a 100m sprinter so my general leg area is already pretty strong as it is. As long as it's not going to cause any long term damage I won't worry.

    Sprinters and footballers usually have very tight hip muscles. Stretching would probably help if you wanted to do something.

    It has taken me 10 months: a bout of physio, numerous x-rays and an MRI scan...and they still aren't 100% sure whats wrong with my knee...I had a 2nd MRI a couple of weeks ago...get the results on monday...Finally the Dr agrees with me that it is a cartilage injury(just needs confirmation), not runners knee or anything else they have tried to diagnose it as! It's done my head in, and made it impossible to play sport for nearly a yr...and if it is cartilage then they have to sort it, so at least another 2months lay off after that! ...end of rant!

    Runner's knee = patellofemoral syndrome = chondromalacia patellae = cartilage injury (of patella)

    But you probably meant cartilage in the knee

    Hope you're fixed soon!

    I've got fibromylgia, its chronic pain syndrome, and all my joints are constantly clicking. I brought it up at an appointment at Nuffield Specialist Hospital in Oxford with my pschio, she said there is nothing wrong with it. So don't worry. Just only do it if you really need to, don't always do it.
