- Knee clicking tends to occur when the joints are being extended, and at times, it can be accompanied by severe pain.
- After a serious injury to the knee, if it is not treated or if it does not heal properly, you can develop unnecessary tissue or plica around the knee. When this happens, the tissue gets tangled between certain parts of the joint, which causes the clicking noise when you extend the joint.
- The meniscus is a lubricator between the bones of your knee, and if damaged and not healed properly, the balance of your knee is thrown off and can also cause the knee to turn when you put force on it-this can cause the knee to develop a clicking sound.
“The knee starts to click because, more often than not, there is a part of the knee that is not in its proper position.”
