Grinding Knees - March 10th 2009, 09:03 PM

My knees make a really cringe-worthy grinding noise when i get right down on my haunches, so that my heels touch my backside. I can sometimes hear it if i'm going up the stairs two at a time in a particularly quiet moment,

Never been a massive sports player at all really, but have recently started walking the hour trip home. I want to start doing more sport and really I want to try doing a charity walk in the summer that is notoriously hard on the knees (its up and down for nearly half the 48 miles on cliff paths)

Is this something to be concerend about? even see a doctor about? or will it go if i simply get more active and start using my joints more heh I'm by no means fat, my bmi is perfect, but I am not fit heh

cheers for any advice =]

I used to be indecisive... but now I'm not so sure

Its possible that the cartiledge in your knees are rubbing together. No it doesnt get better by doing more sports/walking, honestly, you will have to see a doctor. They could cure it with a minor procedure called 'Key Hole Surgery' Not sure what it does, but it fixes the joint.

My mum had that coz she had 'grinding knees'

If Im wrong, sorry, but Im going by the experiance my mum & aunt had.

I had/have the same problem. It took many doctor visits and it was concluded that there was a lack of cartalige inbetween the bone of my knee caps and it was causing the bones to rub together. Do you have pain if you walk to long, etc? I would suggest seeing a doctor, just to hear his/her opinion on the matter. I would also suggest taking glucosamine. It helps put padding inbetween your knee and knee cap so the grinding would lessen. Talk to someone before doing so though. Hope this could be of help(:
