There are various reasons for noise in the knee. Common reason is Patella crepitus which can be because of Chondromalacia. Discoid Meniscus or meniscus tears can cause sounds. Loose bodies in the knee can also cause sound. 

Need to find the diagnosis and then treat accordingly

Crepitus, or the cracking and popping sound that sometimes happens when you move your knee, is usually harmless. However, if the crepitus is accompanied by pain, swelling, or instability, it may be a sign of a more serious problem and you should see a doctor.

Knee crepitus with pain or swelling is due to tissue injury causing inflammation around knee joint.
Acupuncture helps in treating inflammation almost immediately, anti inflammatory points, body balancing points, Moxibustion, cupping, diet and exercise recommendations helps in knee crepitus recovery quickly.

Knee crepitus can be from multiple causes. Painless crepitus can be ignored. Crepitus from knee cap problems can be cured with hip and knee strengthening. Crepitus from cartilage irregularities or loose pieces often need minor keyhole surgery. Painful crepitus from arthritis is initially treated with physical therapy and surgery when therapy stops helping.
