What causes persistent pain and popping noise in knee after injury?
Internal knee injury.
Thanks for posting your query.
The persistent pain in the knee, inability to extend it and the popping noise is likely to be due to an injury to the internal structures of the knee. A ligament injury or a meniscus tear is likely.
You need to get an MRI scan of the knee done to find out the extent of injury. Till then avoid any painful exercises and use an elastic knee brace for support.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
