Re: Clicking Ankle

Thanks for the replies... I've had it for about 10 years now and it isn't causing any pain, just annoyance. If I change the way I walk slightly I can reduce the amount of clicks, from every step with that foot to maybe 1 every 20 steps or so, but my foot is not in my normal, comfortable position. And it does seems to happen more with the dress style shoes you wear with a suit rather than in runners that have more cushioning, so maybe a change in shoes would be worth looking into as well. Probably should click my way into a doctors surgery and get it checked out though.

Would it be possible to feel the difference between a snapping tendon and the 'knuckle crack' type of click? Like feeling or seeing the tendon move under the skin as opposed to just moving with a click?

Cheers
Gavin
