Question: I have osteoporosis and hear a crack now and again, but have no pain. Does that mean my bones are breaking?
 
Dr. Hibberd’s answer:
 
Do not worry. Your bones are not breaking. An occasion crack here and there is not a bone noise. It is actually soft tissue structure moving or relocating itself.
 
Bone noise is followed by pain and deformity that remains there until the bone is healed. Bone healing time is 4-6 weeks and sometimes longer.
