Your 1st appointment is typically an evaluation where measurements are
taken and observations are made to assess where you are starting at in
order to write appropriate goals and develop a plan of care. You may

door. Your 1st treatment session after your evaluation for a total hip

Thanks for the question... that's certainly one that I receive quite frequently. My follow-up question is usually: Is there pain associated with the cracking or popping? If the answer to that question is "no" and you have no other impairments (such as weakness or functional limitations), then you probably have little to be concerned about. If you are getting pain with the "cracking" and/or other impairments associated with the knee, then it would probably be within your best interests to be evaluated by a professional.
