Some people experience popping, locking, or giving out of their knee. When it happens, it's sudden and can really catch you off guard. If it has happened to you, you know what I mean. Not only is it momentarily shocking, it can land you on the ground, especially a knee that gives out.

A knee that gives out is caused by knee instability. Often, the instability is related to ligament injury. Osteoarthritis of the knee is also associated with instability. Learn more about how osteoarthritis can cause your knee to give out in Knee Gives Out - Is It Osteoarthritis?
