grinding knee

(3 discussions)

Why does my right knee grind (there no pain) when I bend it or do squats, lunges, etc.
Please advise as to what to I can do to help the grinding to stop before causing serious injury, or more damage to my knee.
What causes this to happen? Hope someone can help.

    How old are you? Grinding can be a sign of arthritis..if you really concerned go to a doc for a clear diagnosis and put your mind at ease.

    Mine started doing that when I was about 18. I went to the doctor and he said the X-ray showed nothing; but, when he heard the grinding when I bent my knee, he said something completely different. I had surgury on it when I was 21. The doc said that the cartilage in my knee became almost jagged. He had to go in and actually “shave” the back of my knee cap. It really wasn’t that bad.
