What's Causing Popping Noises in My Joints?

By    |   Friday, 15 Nov 2013 10:07 AM

Question: When I walk up and down the stairs I hear popping sounds in my ankle, hip, and knee, and then feel pain in those areas. I am over 60 years old. What can be causing this?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:
 
Popping noises in weight-bearing joints that are accompanied by pain should be checked by your doctor. If you had no pain when your joints pop, it would not be a cause for concern.

But pain in joints should always be physician evaluated for preventable and treatable conditions.
 
You may have advancing osteoarthritis that may need no specific treatment, but you should be checked for other joint-related disorders that may need early treatment to delay onset of chronic continuous pain, joint destruction, and disability
