“Noisy joints”…what they mean and how to help them

by Michelle on January 11, 2018

Everyone knows about those annoying (and sometimes painful) sounds your joints can make:  POP!  CRACK!  SNAP!  GRIND!  There are different benign reasons why joints make these noises, but sometimes it’s not a good reason.

In a joint there is synovial fluid that acts as a lubricant and this fluid contains the gases oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide that “pop” or “crack” when you stretch the joint capsule.  This gas is rapidly released, forming bubbles.  In order to crack the same joint again you have to wait until the gases return to the synovial fluid.

Sometimes the movement of joints, tendons, and ligaments can cause the “pop” or “crack”.  When the joint moves then the tendon’s position changes and it moves slightly out of place and when it moves back into place you might hear the sound.  The noise can also be attributed to a tightening of the ligaments so they become noisy with movement.

The more alarming (and sometimes painful) reason for loud joints is damage to the joint.  Arthritis (Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis), bursitis, gout, strains, sprains, and other injuries all cause joint problems.  Inflammation also plays a role in joint pain and is usually present with all joint damage.  The goal of any treatment is to reduce pain and inflammation while preserving joint function…and sometimes it’s possible to achieve some level of joint “repair”.

Creative Bioscience has a very effective product…Joint Formula…that contains a clinically tested type 2 collagen ingredient believed to promote joint health and structure as well as joint lubrication and mobility.  Along with tart cherry and ginger our Joint Formula addresses reducing joint inflammation, providing lubrication, and repairing the structure of the joint.  You can read about the product and benefits of each ingredient on our website www.creativebioscience.com
