The anterior cruciate ligament tears if they are minor like grade I and II can be successfully treated by conservative treatment like immobilization in a cylinder cast. After a few weeks the swelling decreases and adequate strength can be regained by physiotherapy. If the ligament injury is not treated or it is long term or grade III then it gives rise to instability of the knee joint. In long run this leads to osteoarthritis.

I had also been previously dx'd with multiple sclerosis so, many neurologists had to monitor and attempt treatment with muscle relaxers assuming it was spastic muscles. Recently, after an 8 hr drive I wasn't able to walk afterward. I mean, I was able to walk, barely, and looked as though I was crippled and missing my wheelchair... Looking as though I should not be walking. It was extremely painful for about 2 weeks. That is what prompted the ortho visit and demand some attention to this.
I am not double jointed, but have osteoarthritis in most of my joints now, but my right knee has got worse and I can't straighten it. It has got moderate degeneration of the medial compartment and patella. My doctor has referred me for physiotherapy. It's not as bad as it was over the last few months, when the whole leg was very painful and swollen and I couldn't walk. Can't take Tramadol nor Ibuprofen as they make me very ill and worsens the swellings.
I take the flaxseed oil capsules, 1000 mg morning and mid-day for my own osteoarthritis in my jaws as well as for mood. Certain foods are rich in omega fatty acids as well, like macadamia and walnuts, pumpkin seeds and freshwater fish, such as salmon and tuna. And Ester-C (gentler on the stomach than plain vitamin C) can help with circulation to the area. Using moist heat might help relax some of the stiffness she feels.
His Rheumatologist claims it is due to the Rheumatoid Arthritis. My father is a very private person and although I am a retired R.N., he does not share many of his symptoms with me. I just learned of the sez. like activity( for lack of a better description ). I need help quickly and am clueless how to help him. I have severe fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. Is this my fate?
Unfortunately, osteoarthritis, like any other type of arthritis has flare ups and then you feel a little better for a while and it can flare up again. Ask your doctor to refer you to physiotherapy who can give you specific exercises to do so that you do not become too stiff. Although rest is important, you still need to be active, but not to the point that you get exhausted. Unless you have been told otherwise, a healthy balanced diet with fish, fruit and veg would be fine.
