Why do my ankles crack when I first stand up in the morning?

Cracking or popping of the ankle, as long as it is not accompanied by pain is fairly normal. Occasionally our joints just crack for no obvious reason (although soft tissue in the joint is generally the culprit). In fact most people experience cracking or popping of some joint, as they age. However, if this cracking is accompanied by pain, you should certainly see an Orthopaedist to determine the cause.
