Re: Clicking Ankle

If the ankle snaps repeatedly when walking then it is not a joint. I takes several minutes for a joint cavitation to absorb the gas and be able to pop again. Ankles and wrists often do what Kevin suggests-they have a tendon snapping over a bony protuberance or a bursa. The same thing with a snapping hip. Surgical intervention is sometimes required to fix a snapping hip.
