    First off id like to say im just now getting back into working out since mid highschool. Im a sophmore in college today.

    Ive strayed away from squats lately due to oddities about my knees, I know this isnt a substitute for a doctor's examination. Buut..Id like to hear what you guys have to say.

    Symptoms

    -Seem to track at an outwards angle and not straight on.
    -Crackles and pop when I squat or kneel down.
    -Pain if im in squatting for an extended amount of time., when i stand up they pop and its a kinda squishy pushing pain.

    Im gonna make an apointment witht he doc next week.

    Sounds like a bunch of different probs potentially. Did you play sports that were hard on the knees in HS? Football running back perhaps? Basketball?

    popping is just air (as i remember), they say, and does not mean you have any problems with your knees

    I used to have the same problem; I had an MRI done on my knee and went to physical therapist. Still nothing seemed to help, finally when I joined the gym, and there happened to be a free consultation by a Chiropractic, after an x-ray I found out that my right leg is shorter then my left by only a 1/2 inch. I started using a heel insert and I haven't had nearly the issues with my knee that I used to.
