Hi Doctor. Many of the times my mother knee joints make noise like crack when she sits and stands. This sound is coming from approx. One month. Please provide a better solution for this issue and also tell me the cause of this problem. Thanks for your consideration.

The sound of the joint is called crepitus. The capsule and cartilage of the joint is loosening. So the sound comes. Do passive movement regularly. Reduce weight and use knee caps while walking.

It is because of age related degenerative changes. Management depends on stage of the disease.
