Common Causes of Popping Joints

Popping can occur in any joint of your body, at any time of the day. While this is often related to aging, there are many other reasons why your joints may pop.

Here are some reasons to be aware of:

·      Nitrogen bubbles: Many people don’t realize that the tissue surrounding their joints makes synovial fluid, meant to lubricate the area. When this fluid is released from the joint, such as when cracking your knuckles, it results in a popping sound.

·      Moving ligaments: Tight ligaments may pop during certain movements, such as when you move at a particular angle. In some cases, the popping is accompanied by pain.

·      Rough joint surfaces: This can happen for many reasons, such as osteoarthritis and cartilage loss. With arthritis, for example, the popping may worsen over time as the disease progresses.

Along with the above, some types of injuries and surgical procedures can cause a joint to pop. In some cases, you can eliminate this by improving range of motion through physical therapy.

If you’re concerned about popping joints, consult with your medical team to better understand the cause and best form of treatment.
