Active movement of knees and examiner feels for crepitus
OA is characterized by pain, stiffness, swelling, crepitus
, and limited movement of the affected joint.
Examination of the chest revealed palpable subcutaneous crepitus
over both sternoclavicular joints.
We evaluated a 45-year-old woman with a long-standing history of severe progressive MS who presented after dinner to the emergency department with acute dyspnea, aphonia, labored breathing, and diffuse subcutaneous crepitus
of the neck.
The morning after surgery, the patient denied abdominal complaints, but reported a sore throat and substernal chest pain; palpation did not reproduce this pain, but did elicit crepitus
at the neck.

On the fifth day of admission, the patient developed crepitus
over the anterior chest wall.
Then gently assess for the presence of a pelvic fracture by gently squeezing together and, if no crepitus
is noted, pushing posteriorly.
In addition to pain, the clinical diagnosis of knee OA comprises at least three of these six clinical characteristics: age greater than 50 years; morning stiffness for less than 30 minutes; crepitus
on active knee motion; bony tenderness; bony enlargement; and lack of palpable warmth.
Participants needed to meet the classification criteria defined by the American College of Rheumatology (radiographic evidence of OA changes, joint pain on most days of the last month, as well as three of the following; aged 50 years or older, morning joint stiffness longer than 30 minutes, crepitus
, bony tenderness, bony enlargement and no palpable warmth; Altman et al 1986), have good command of the English language and be able to undertake exercise.
2% compared with the other groups, and both turmeric and turmeric/GS combination had significantly reduced joint crepitus
by approximately 37%.
Sometimes the individual might experience a kind of crackling noise, which is called crepitus
when the affected joint is moved.
