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?

Joints that have a joint capsule are usually called synovial joints. They are sometimes also referred to as freely moving joints, and the medical term for them is diarthrotic joints.

Ribs don't. Joints sometimes do, and this includes those between the vertebrae, but the ribs have nowhere to pop or click. You may want to visit a doctor, as it could imply something wrong with an internal organ or the body cavity.

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.

The joints between finger bones are condyloid (hinge) joints called interphalangeal joints. The thumb has just one, so it needs no other description. The other fingers have two, called the proximal interphalangeal joint and the distal interphalangeal joint. There are sometimes abbreviated "PIP" and "DIP."
