How to relieve joint stress?

I was wondering if there are any good ways to relieve joint stress before and after exercising, they started popping more often recently and I don't want it to turn into joint pain latter on.

The first and most important

The first and most important thing is to ensure you're warming up correctly before exercise, a minimum of 10 minutes, making sure to move the joints relevant to the exercises you'll be performing. You could also try supplementing with glucosamine and flaxseed oil to aid joint recovery and maintenance.

If the popping persists or worsens then do seek professional advice from someone who can look at and evaluate the joint.
