Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day.
Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day.
Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain.
if You have don't have any pain or any give away feeling with the popping , there is not any big issue. You should do some knee strengthening quadriceps exercises to avoid any future problem o to decrease the popping frequency and intensity.
make a hard roll with cotton bed sheet aand lie down , place the roll beneath your knee and push it down towards the bed, hold for 5 seconds and release. do it for 15 repititiions(twice a day).
dont overstand, or climb the stairs. avoid squatting or low sitting.
Painless clicks or sounds from the knee can be ignored if other issues like swelling, stiffness or instabilty are absent. As a precaution avoid excessive and repetitive bending exercises and full squats. Weight loss is unlikely to be the cause of the issue.
Congratulations on losing 24 kgs weight. Hopefully you have taken a proper exercise program from a certified trainer and certified dietition.
The knee popping needs to be examined for any ligament laxity for now it may not be severe. But in view of ligament laxity you need to do exercises which are bio mechanically and scientifically correct. Working out with wrong mechanics can lead to such problems too.
