Crunchy Knee Sounds
Sep 19, 2006
WHen I bend my knees, I get an annoying crunching sound. I mean, its a loud crackling sound. When I go up and down stairs, people around me can hear it. I dont even have to squat, I can just slightly bend them and get this sound.

Im only 23. Im also 5'9 and 235 pounds, yeah thats over weight, but people bigger than me dont have this...sound comming from them.

I dont have any knee pains, but my father had knee problems. What Im wondering is, is my knee actually grinding against the cartilage by my patella, or is something else making that sound? Theres no pain, my knees are not weak, and I do not do Knee intensive/knee shocking exercises because of the sound.

I want to start jumping rope but all that crackling doesnt sound good at all.

Am I eventually going to become handicapped?
any abnormal sound should be checked. Generaly a crunching sound is either a damaged kneecap, torn cartilage or degeneration of the knee also known as Osteo Arthritis.
I really suggest you see an Orthopeadic surgeon for appropriate testing.
