Introduction

Crepitus of the knee can be a very alarming symptom for people with knee problems and even those who have no other knee symptoms. It can provoke avoidance behaviours and anxiety responses because of lack of understanding of what the noise is and where it is coming from. Recent studies are showing that a lot of knee crepitus is actually physiological and does not have any impact on knee strength, function and pain. In this course, Claire Robertson explains exactly what crepitus is and how we should educate patients who have “noisy knees”
