Physical therapists? Knee people?


Recommended Posts

I have lately noticed an outrageous noise coming from my knees. It is no gentle grinding, but literally an across-the-room kind of creak that happens when I walk up or down stairs or get up from a chair. It's pretty crunchy just lifting my leg, but insanely loud when walking down stairs. I'm very moderate in my exercising -- only walking and biking lately, but this week I wanted to go to an aerobics class. The lunges, squats and step classes were disturbing. Should I be avoiding these? Should I see someone? Is this a sign of impending arthritis? I'm thinking it's normalish to crunch and creak a bit, but this is pretty nuts. Thoughts?
