Injured my knee 3 times and each time it's made popping sounds. Physio confused as to what it is. Now it is much better but still pops when I turn my leg or try to lock it up. Any ideas?

    The physio thought at first it was ligament strain, then said I had a subluxion of the knee cap and now thinks it my ACL, before realising in fact my 'good' knees ACL is also very lax

    My brother's did that, was his ACL. My doc warned me to not pivot on my knees. Also said popping after 3 operations in my knee was normal. Long as it didn't hurt when it popped.

      I'm worried it is, but it's not giving me enough hassle or pain - not that I know anything. Mine said don't pivot but it feels pretty steady, can jog at speed with no hassle... been waiting for MRI for 5/6 weeks now. Cheers

      My brother's got worse. It gradually got so when he ran it would separate , when he stepped back down on it, it would slam back together. He wore a brace to stop it from doing that til the operation.

      I first did mine nearly 12 months ago and twice again since. Mine doesn't sound as serious as your brothers which makes me think it's not ACL. It causes very minor pain when caught awkwardly, very rarely feels unstable. Very confused

    As you slowly rehab and strengthen the soft tissue most odd that goes away. Don't put extra pressure on the joint by manually twisting or putting extra presdure. A little of it might be scar tissue if its been repeatedly injured and that has to break down.
