Achilles Tendon Snap:
If you have a painful snapping it could mean that something could have happened to the tendon itself. The Achilles tendon is fibrous tissue that connects the heel to the muscles of the lower leg: the calf muscles. Leg muscles are the most powerful muscle group in the body and the Achilles tendon is the thickest and strongest tendon in the body. It is very vital, the achilles tendon connects the calf muscle to the heel bone, and vital to pushing off or pushing forward. So in other words the whole back of your calf down to your heel while walking or when about to jump or even walking on tip toes you are using that tendon, it can also generate 5 times your body weight. So when under tension it does not work as well especially as we get older.
As we get older the tendant gets dryer and dryer and doesn’t have the bounciness we want it to have, the blood supply decreases. A few things can happen especially if you have Gout or Hypothyroidism, if you hear a snap it means the tendon is off it’s alignment and it’s rubbing against the bone. That’s not serious by itself says Dr Oz, but if you rupture the tendon and it snaps it’s in your best interest to go see a doctor immediately because you just be able to move that particlar limb at the time.
So how do we prevent this from happening? Stretch Tendons Before Activity. Get down on your hands and knees raise your buttocks in the air keep your knees somewhat bent till you feel the tension in your Achilles tendon.
Knee Joint Crack:
Knee joints are the one most common cracking sounds from the body, because there are air bubbles in the fluid between the big bone up top and the little bones below. The fluid around the bones keeps the bones lubricated for easy movement, so when you take a joint and crack it for example your knuckles it does something very interestting, it pulls air in the fluid out which causes the snapping noise. Dr Oz said this snapping sound is not that serious unless its associated with pain, swelling, or if you dont have the same motion after snapping.

Shoulder joint is a little ball that fits into a cavity and your shoulders often make popping sounds because its not held very well, what holds well is muscles around it which allows the shoulder to move in the socket, which then allows the ball on top of the humerus to move is actually the muscles around it. So if you were to pull on it in the wrong direction and angle it back you can actually pop it and it can be very painful.
If you injure the rotator cup muscles Dr Oz says a way to prevent this is use large exercise bands, take one end in your left hand, place your right hand on your right hip with the other part of the band holding firmly without any slack and stretch the band out with your left hand and go out and in for a few minutes a day to stretch the shoulder muscles.
If you pop the shoulder out doctors have to put bones back into the sockets and this hurts says Oz
After any shoulder injury apply ice and take otc pain reliever.
