Knee Popping and Grinding
Knee popping and grinding are often associated with torn cartilage that is sandwiched between the bones of the knee. Most of the times, this is usually a torn meniscus. A torn meniscus is the most common cause of painful knee popping and catching. It can also be caused by an injury. For you to prevent knee popping and grinding, you need to consider wearing a knee brace.

The meniscus surrounds the joint and when torn, it can produce pain across the inside part of the knee. This pain is mostly caused by the deterioration of cartilage, or any other intense activities like sports, which may cause trauma to the knee. Listed below are some other forms of inner knee pain.
