I searched for creaking muscles before, but nothing came up. I didnt really know other than that what to search for.

It's when you can hear your knees or other joints grinding. Apparently it is also a term used for the sounds one's lungs make when they have emphysema.

 

Regardless - here's a definition and a link to the Universtity of Maryland about it - you can google it and come up with more.

Especially as you get older. I had it in my knees. I saw a program on sports medicine that talked about knee problems. It said that most people overdevelop the muscles on the front and backs of their legs from running and walking, but do not do exercises which hold the joint in place from side to side. I started doing exercises which strengthened these muscles and both crepitus and joint pain has departed.
