The clicking noise is caused when a burst of air enters your joints. When you pop your knuckles, air enters the joint and causes a popping sound. When you walk, your joints might pop themselves to destress. It is the same feeling your back gets after a good pop from a Chiropractor, the joints are destressing. Joints are supported by a complex arrangement of muscles and tendons. These keep the joint stable, allowing it to function properly. Some people have slightly lax joints and when this is the case the joint may click. Minor trauma such as a sprain may cause the joint to start clicking because inflammation and damage disrupts the stability and organization of the supporting muscles and tendons. Once this has healed the clicking disappears. In fact, more often than not the person won't even be aware that the injury has happened.

I think this is very fun, when you hear your own joints are clicking. I think the air getting into your joints will participant the bone metabolism. So that we can get the fresh bone right?

Why do knees pop?

Why do my joints click and crack? The painless noise in your joints or ligaments is both common and quite normal as called Crepitus. The synovial fluid lubricates and protects the joints. Over time, gases can build up in these areas which are released when the joint is being used. Thus, the pops and cracks. It can also be from tendons and ligaments sliding over bone. Sometimes it can also be from arthritic conditions where the bone rubs on bone. Most of these sounds are harmless and nothing to worry about if there is no swelling or pain. #joints #injuries #jointpain #strains #workoutpain #sportsinjuries #moorestown #haddonfield #waynepa #lowermerion #weighttraining #strengthtraining #horsham #balacynwyd #personaltraining #homefitness #gyms #lafitness

What are the criteria for classifying joints?

There are several ways in which joints are classified. The main classifications are in regard to how much they move. The classical terms are Synarthrotic, Amphiarthrotic, and Diarthrotic, where the Diarthrotic are the most movable. The diarthrotic joints are also called freely moving, or synovial joints. These can be classified by how they move. There are monoaxial joints, which move in one plane, or around a central axis. Then there are biaxial joints that move in two planes of movement. And, finally, there are the multiaxial (sometimes called triaxial) joints that move in more than two planes. The monoaxial joints can be subdivided into hinge and pivot joints. The biaxial joints can be subdivided into ellipsoidal and saddle. And, the multiaxial joints can be subdivided into gliding and ball-and-socket joints.
