My legs(mostly the right one) make these "clicking"/cracking noises when I do squats? I'm wondering why

Your stance probably isn't correct. Make sure feet are directly under shoulders and when you squat, knees over toes

Where exactly is the clicking coming from? Ankle? Knee? Hip? It may indicate an injury or something out of place. Examine your stance; if you're sure you're using the correct stance and posture, but the clicking persists, then it's time to go to the doctor. Even if it's not painful right now, it could get that way if something is wrong and you ignore it. And maybe it's nothing, but better safe than sorry.

On few occasions, I observed the same. So I tried to correct my stance. And, voila

It seems to come from my knees, doesn't hurt. I find it hard knowing if I'm doing it correctly, but I think I am. I kinda just thought it's because my body isn't used to doing this type of work out

Drink lots of water and flush those toxins out and take a glucosamine to help with joints. I have the same problem with everything but I have had so many injuries in the past that it's brutal. Some stances work better sometimes but just make sure you're not putting too much pressure on the joint and work your way up slowly and you'll be just fine

See a chiropractor he will crack and realign which ever joint/muscle it is...

Not sure where you are but in the UK private chiropractors do this sort of thing for £30 a visit so should be cheaper in USA and usually gives you some exercises for the problem.

I get a clicking occasionally in my knee and shoulder which is sorted...does hurt much more of a reliving pain...a friend see one for neck click and he looks like hes break his neck and the click sounds bad butmy friend loves it

My advice is to get your knees looked at. I'm not a doctor but I've had countless knee injuries, from removing all cartlidges in both knees to torn ligaments. Like one of the other members said in their post, better safe than sorry. Let me know how it goes if you do get it checked.

Ok thank you. I'll get it looked at

In my view, and for now at least, lay off the exercises which add stress to the knees until you get it checked

08 Oct
Ok I will. Thanks for your help :)

It could be patellar tracking disorder.  Which is pretty much the knee cap not following the correct path.  I actually use to have the same issue and it can easily be fixed through strengthening around the knee.  That being said I'd get it looked at.  Hope it's alright!

Wouldn't I have pain then? Either way I'm getting it checked! Thanks

Silje, I would get it checked. I have the same problem and I ignored it for awhile but as I increased my workouts I started to feel pain. My friend who's a nurse said I should get it checked because I probably either tore something or popped something out of place. Seeing the doctor Thursday.

I'm getting it checked next week. I would appreciate if you let me know if the doctor find anything. Hope it's nothing serious.
