View Full Version : Knee 'snapping' while stretched

04-20-2007, 04:01 AM
I've been doing Rippetoe's program since late February, and I've gone as far as 210lbs with the squats.

Trouble is my left kneejoint don't feel the same. When I bend it (back and at a slight angle away from my body), I feel and hear a 'click' not too different from snapping one's knuckles.

It's not causing pain (unless I deliberately induce a 'click', in which case the discomfort is mild) but this has been lingering for about a week now.

You ever find out what this was?

Does not sound too good.

Its actually normal. I have this too and saw a doctor. He told me its just the way we are, some people get a click in their knee, some don't. Since I've been running, the clicking has become more intense. But it is settling down again. Unless you get a pain from the click, don't worry about it too much.
