Pain in knees and joints crack, feel weak while dancing. Suggestion?

Hello, I have always noticed that my joints crack, but recently my knees have been extra bad and I also sometimes get pain in them, my knees also feel weak and sometimes give way, I am a dancer and it can often cause me to struggle with jumping/hopping because when I land my knee tends to collapse if I bend too much. I m not sure if this is because I have a knee problem, any help would be great.

It seems that due to long time dancing practice there might be having some damage to ligaments and cartilages of knee joints due to recurring jolting movements might be giving rise to this problem.
Go for x-ray knee joints.
Consult orthopedic surgeon and get examined.
Ok and take care.

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

Owing to your profession and the activities you are involved in , there is a possibility that you have developed Patello femoral arthritis (wear & tear in the anterior knee joint) which is causing pain and crackling sensation in your knees.

The management for this condition involves -

* Avoiding deep knee bending activities
* Physiotherapy for strengthening the Quadriceps muscle
* Maintaining optimum body weight
* Simple analgesic like acetaminophen as needed
* Ocassionally, a steroid injection into the knee may provide good pain relief

If your symptoms are not resolving, consult an orthopedic surgeon for further evaluation and management.

Hope this information is helpful. Good day
