Arthritis pain: Do you hear this sound? The unusual warning sign of early arthritis

What is crepitus?

Crepitus is when there is a sensation or noise when you move a joint which can be described as clicking, cracking, creaking, crunching, grating or popping, said Spire healthcare.

The health site continued: “Crepitus is more common as you get older, although you can experience it at any age.

“Your joints can crack or pop from time to time so, in most cases, it’s nothing to be worried about.

“However, if you have pain or discomfort as well, it could be a sign that you have an underlying medical condition.”
