Cracking in left knee

Please suggest some homoeopathic / other medicines for cracking sound in left knee sometimes. I am a Senior Citizen and overweight. Thanks more  

Just below the knee there are natural lubricants. which gets dried because of age. Then we find difficulty for knee movement & cracking sound. In Allopathy, they will inject a liquid (cortisone) and some simple medicines for regrowth of lubricants & some pain killer, thereafter expensive knee replacement surgery. However in Yoga, there are some Asanas which will slowly improve your knee related problems, but under the guidance of expert, for which you can contact in your city Patanjali Arogya Kendra. more  
The cracking can be due to multiple reasons. If the cracking is along with pain / swelling please visit a orthopedic urgently to diagnose the cause and take remedy. So that the problem does not escalate. As we age our body starts to wear and tear, resulting in various bones / muscle / organs related problems.

However if you do not have any pain in the knees then the first thing you should look at is reducing weight. A simple 1 hour walk (at maximum possible speed) everyday should help in reducing the weight. It will also help in strengthening the legs and knee joints and keep many other old age problems away. more  
Some knee joint cracking sound can be normal. However, given your age and weight, you should show to a good orthopedist to check out possible degree of osteoarthritis, cartilage / meniscus wear and tear/damage (serious tears can require surgical intervention) etc. The doctor will be able to advise appropriate medicines to repair cartilage, exercise regimen etc.

A 1kg higher weight results in as much as 3 to 6kg. load stress increase on the knee joint. An exercise regimen - given your age and condition - and weight reduction are the first essential steps in consultation with a doctor. more
