    Knee Popping - is this normal?

    Hoping to get some info from a PT or the likes that understands causes of knee popping. This is an issue that developed for me in over the past few years, I'm 36.

    When I get on a bike cold, both of my knees pop audibly for a minute or so and then reduce to a clicking that can be felt but not heard for the next 10-15min. Once I'm warmed up it goes away. Is this normal? I have knee pain in my right knee that comes and goes for months at a time. I am concerned that the popping is leading to more pain down the road and possibly in both knees.

    I am a avid rider/racer (10-20 hrs/week) have done some longer endurance type stuff up to 100mi off road. Off the bike I hike and ski (10 days/yr) but no running.

    Is there a stretching routine or exercise regime I could be doing to avoid this condition?

    No PT here, but I have similar issues. I saw an ortho for knee pain that I get after running, and asked him about the excessive popping noise from my knees. He said it was unrelated to my pain, and is not an indicator of any problems. It's just synovial fluid bubbles, like your knuckles.
