 Why does my knee makes a snapping sound when i walk?

Everytime i jog i feel pain in my shin, what are d ways to prevent it?

speak to fitness doctor, because you may have pull one of your muscle so be careful, plus when jogging don't push yourself too hard.

try power walking in stead

it's your own fault
stop jogging.

Its most likely shin splints, i get them bad, mostly when i run on softer surfaces, the best way to prevent and calm them is to stretch them first. One stretch is to lean back a little and rest one foot on its heel and move the tip of your toe up and down to its full extent. Do this in both legs, it shouldnt take long. Again this will only work if its shin splints. You may have a bubble/cyst on the outside of your shins about half way up if you do that get bigger the more they hurt. Also you may want to change the type of shoe youre wearing, that also has an effect.

Cycling will provide a low impact alternative.

Proper pre-running stretch, and shoes that fit your foot properly and support properly. There are a large variety of running shoes, and people have a lot of different running styles. A professional runner's shoe store, such as Marathon Shoe in Boston and Cambridge MA, will take a lot of time to fit you.
There is much information in a shoe issue of Runner's World Magazine.

First, check your shoes. When I get some pain, it is often related to my running shoes wearing out.

Warm up and then stretch before your run.

Do toe taps to strengthen your shins. Sit in a chair with your feet on the floor and knees at a 90 degree angle. Lift up your toes and tap them twice. Then lift your heels and tap once. Repeat.

Finally, when you have pain, RICE, rest, ice, compress and elevate.

If it's a "shin splint" - kind of a (sharp pain, cracking) then the best thing to do is stretch well before you jog. Toe tapping to warm up the muscle is the simpliest exercise. Putting on a cream to warm the muscle like Bengay may help.

Also, consider your foot wear, and make sure you are wearing a well fitting running shoe with appropriate shock absorption.

Finally, if you continue to feel pain it should not be ignored - check with a doctor

It's important to get this checked out by a physcian. When I ran for my high school cross country team, I developed shin splints. I good website on things to do for shin splints is here: http://www.webmd.com/content/Article/61/67300.htm?pagenumber=2

Treatment for shin splints includes rest, massage, ice, stretching, and strengthening. Rest and ice is sometimes the best treatment. You should also be stretching your calves and Achilles tendon. If you have the problem during running or walking, try warming up more and don't increase the speed too quickly. You can also try varying the speed and elevation of the treadmill if you use one instead of keeping it the same.

Also, make sure your shoes are sturdy and give you lots of support, particularly in the arch. If your shins hurt, you should gently massage them and then ice them after you work out. A good pair of jogging shoes is worth every cent! Go to an athletic store that will help you find the shoe that will give you the best arc for jogging.
