Hi, whenever i do push ups. my elbows pop. is it a cartalige problem?
The symptom you described can be an indication of many different elbow conditions. Without a more complete evaluation, it is difficult to determine if it is a cartilage problem.
If the popping is not painful or accompanied by any other symptoms, it is likely nothing to be concerned with. However, if it is painful, you have other symptoms, or it persists for more than a month, you should consider seeing a health care profession for further evaluation.
