Over a month ago, after a day of skiing, I noticed that my left knee started to crunch/pop/click when I would extend it. It is still making these noises, and it makes extending my leg very uncomfortable. However, there is no pain, no swelling, and no instability. I have been skiing like normal. I am going to see a doctor when I get back to the land of freeish healthcare (Canada), but has anybody experienced something like this?
Im not a doctor so dont take what I say too seriously but Ive been told that the cracking and poping could be from a lack of flexibility which could lead to more serious problems such as the osgood schlaters that I have but at the same time it could be absolutely nothing. Either way see a doctor and see what they say about it. If there is no pain it cant really be that bad.
Welcome to being a free skier who is over 16. As you age, you will notice that many of your joints start to sound like a bag of popcorn. There are advantages though: If you are ever in the all too common situation of being challenged to a break dance fight, you can drop your own beat.
I dunno, my hips and knees pop once in a while (not often) if you did anything unusual that day, maybe try to see a doctor?
get the foucault
this happened to me after i skied for 2 weeks straight, take a few days off and you will be fine
my knees pop every time i bend down.. have done for a few years now, but just recently when ever i sit down and stand back up again i can't extend my leg properly for a good 5 minutes. Hello arthritis!
yea my knees hurt so badly when i ski. osgood slatters blowssss. I used to tear it up when i was younger but i'm now 21 and my park skiing days seem limited.
half the game is 90% mental

Get it check out soon. I unknowingly tore my acl on thanksgiving playing football. No pain in at all so I thought it was fine and went out and rode on it and screwed it up even more. Have a fully ruptured acl and severely torn meniscus and have surgery scheduled in a few weeks. Three days on the snow this year and two hits on jump will be the extent of my season. Good luck with that knee brah!

dont want to scare you but i had the same issue last week. day later i couldnt extend my leg so i went to a doctor:partially broken acl. no skiing next 6 weeks://
I'm not a doctor but if it keeps up you definitely need to go see one, something similar happened to me and it sounds like an issues with patella tendon off MCL. but again, GO SEE A DOCTOR
Pray for snow
Get a Dr's opinion, there's so many things it could be. Might as well be safe then sorry.
Oh, I'm sorry....WHAT'D YOU SAY!?!?
The crackling is called crepitus. If your knee doesn't hurt, it's not something to be immediately concerned about. If it does hurt (for more than about a week), you should see a doctor.
Skiing puts a lot pressure on the knee so anything you do ski wise could make it worse. Better to get it checked out and know for sure.
All The Best.
roll out every muscle with a foam roller until your leg is totally relaxed. I was having similar problems. Roll out everything f, ice a little, elevate, and make sure to stretch a ton and do this for a few days you should be back in no time.
try swimming. I strained my MCL and had fluid in my knee and have been swimming for a little over a month. I usually go either once or twice a day and swim between 20-100 laps depending on how i'm feeling. I've also noticed it's made me so much more flexible. I could never touch my toes and now i can put my whole palm on the ground
I would definitely get it looked at. Torn meniscus can keep your leg from fully extending and can lead to some more serious problems you dont want to deal with down the road. I've torn my meniscus 3 times and the second two only hurt for a few minutes and went away but they later cause some serious stiffness and irratation to stand on for long periods of time. A torn meniscus can also rub away at your articular cartilage which has happened to me and that fucks you up pretty good. So get it checked out as soon as you get back to Canada and make sure to get the MRI, dont let the doctor say any different, thats what lead to my problems
