When you walk down the street, climb a flight of stairs, or even sit
down to watch your favorite television program, do you occasionally hear
a clicking or “popping” sound coming from your knee?

Knee clicking tends to occur when the joints are being extended, and
at times, it can be accompanied by severe pain. The knee starts to click
because, more often than not, there is a part of the knee that is not
in its proper position.

As a result, there may be other portions of the leg that are being
used more frequently to compensate for the part of the knee that’s out
of place.
