1551754 tn?1294144767 A couple of weeks ago my husband and I took our kids to an indoor water park resort and I had to climb the stairs many times to go down the slides after we returned home and after I went to bed my left knee dislocated (this dislocation has only happened one other time before, 10 years old when I was pregnant with my first child). It went back into place on its own so I put a brace on the stabilize it. After a couple of days it was feeling a lot better so I went with the brace.
Avatar m tn I am now 51 years old, and despite still having beebees in the knee area and a missing knee cap I have been fairly active, but now have arthritis surrounding the area and my knee occasionally pops out of alignment. I build livestock fence on hilly terrain and rope riding my horses. I would like to know what knee brace I could use to give it the best support possible (without being too hot when wearing) while doing these activities?
Avatar m tn Went to the basket full speed and jump stopped and all of sudden felt like someone took a sledge hammer to my knee. After the injury it was apparent the knee cap was dislocated. I was rushed to the ER and upon review it revealed that I had torn patellar tendon. I had surgery the following Monday (7/21) I am 27 years old and a former college athlete and was training hard for an Iron Man in October so experiencing this injury has been very discouraging.
Avatar f tn Is it o.k. to wear a knee brace that also covers the vaiacose vein in my shin. without the brace I have pain in my knee cap & not sure if any pain is from the varicose vein. it does feel better with the brace on But will it do harm to the varicose vein?
Avatar f tn s above the knee cap. Right now I just went for a 5 mile walk with my knee brace on and the front underneath my knee cap is very sore and it hurts to keep my knee bent. I'm a 27 year old female who has never had any knee problems before. I'm a geologist and so I really need my knees to be healthy. Unfortunately my health plan is horrible and really can't afford x-rays and MRI's if it ends up being nothing serious. Thanks!
Avatar m tn Hi Joedev Have you ever dislocated or otherwise injured your knee? There is a possibility that it is either your knee cap "sublucating" (partially dislocating) or damage to your cartlidge. When the "lock" occurs, how do you get it to "unlock" and do you get the sensation of something "moving back into place"?
293157 tn?1285873439 I have OA in my left knee, so this might help. prior to what's below, my left knee felt normal About 3 years ago, I stepped out of my shower and didn't have my full weight on it when I heard/felt a loud POP. I applied RICE (rest it, ice it, etc) immediately and should of called my doctor (I called him a week later). my knee cap could move 1/2" sideways, had muscle spasms, my knee swelled and couldn't move it....and it hurt badly but not the worse I've felt.
Avatar f tn You could try using a knee brace for additional support and avoiding exercise. It would be best to discuss the situation, the management plan and the expected, prognosis in detail with your treating orthopedician. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar f tn Well, you've landed on the multiple sclerosis board, but having recently dislocated my knee, I've also had a knee mri and a visit with an orthopedic surgeon and physiotherapists. I would think this is a relatively normal knee (depending on your age). I imagine they were evaluating you for a torn ACL/PCL/meniscus? I expect there is another board with members who will be more helpful :).
Avatar f tn I was told that I have patella feminel pain, I am use to having trouble kneeling and walking after a shift at work and and my knee being weak and the knee cap moving around, but lately even when I am not doing anything it feels as though something is push up on my knee cap, and extremely painful and I cant get the pain to go away. At time it feels as though something is being wedged under my knee cap.
Avatar f tn Hi Dr. Gross, I had a total knee replacement 1 year ago for severe arthritis. The pain is still there and I can't walk right, also my knee cap keeps going out and I fall or almost fall. My Ortho gave me a brace to wear and PT to go to, to streng. then muscles around the knee. It hasn't helped. My knee cap is still my own. Why wasn't that replaced with the total knee also? Is that a norm? I am so upset and will be getting a second opinion. Any ideas why this is happening.
Avatar f tn t ask me about swelling or continued obvious heat in the knee, nor did he tell me if the dislocated patella had moved back into place, nothing. Do I go forth with the PT or get a second opinion ASAP? The “good” orthopedic specialists in my area book out a good ways. Thanks for any advice you can give.
Avatar f tn He is taking out the plica, its gotten calcified and it pushed out my knee cap, so its not technically sublaxation because the plica is making the cap out of place. I appreciate your response and thank you for caring.
Avatar m tn t not bend it fully for at least a couple of days this all started when I dislocated my knee I never had knee problems what could I do because I have this bump on the side of my knee and my other knee it's completely flat and smooth thanks agin
457721 tn?1256640798 Also, in some cases, strengthening the muscles around the knee cap and/or re-balancing the strength of the muscles around your knee, can help stabalize it. I have what they call "bilateral patella-alta", meaning both my kneecaps sit too high up, so you can imagine how easy it is for me to dislocate them. Due to the awkward position, I can also only wear knee gaurds for a limited time or risk "Patellar compression syndrome".
Avatar f tn My question is can the cartilage and the knee cap be from that one injury? I never had problems with my knee prior! Workers Comp is saying that it is a genetic defect and I was born with this.
Avatar n tn Seering pain shoots through my knee joint and down the sides of my knee. Have I dislocated my knee? Or is it something like a severe strain?
564321 tn?1216333985 Earlier this year ( In march) I feel and Dislocated my left knee.. They put it back, but for 3 months I had external fixatures ( or Rods) in my left leg.. I recently had them removed in June..I now have foot drop where I cant left my ankle towards my face. and certain parts of my foot is numb.. Is there is cure for foot drop? what can I do to fix this..>?
Avatar f tn Hi, working is fine as long as you are not using the limb extensively. A knee cap will help you too. Decompression of cyst along with repair of meniscal tear is the option. Repair is important as only decompression will lead to recurrence of cyst. Keep on taking pain killers after meals till you see the doctor.
1900462 tn?1352775302 i dislocated my knee when i was in 10th grade, i fell from the bleachers and the pain comes and goes, & my lower back hurts like a bi..
1306931 tn?1273540199 All I can suggest is that I take Nsaids like voltaren and it helps me with the arthritis in my knee. I also wear a knee brace when I walk or do any kind of physical activity. My knee makes a lot of crunching noises and sometimes its painful, but at least I can walk now. But yes you would need to call your orthopedic on your knee.
Avatar f tn UPDATE ~ received X-today, but it's unlikely anything will show up. I feel it's soft tissue damage. At least she confirmed swelling, and the blood pooling in my ankle, though it's not as bad as the 1st week of injury. Next will be an MRI after results are sent to her. She gave me a script for Celebrex because I can't tolerate most NSAID's. Another question?? I have no back pain, could this possibly be sciatic nerve pain.
Avatar m tn Dislocated knee is one of the most horrible personal injury.Scotland has a wide tradition firms for example law firms like: http://www.bonnaraccidentlaw.com/how-to-claim/personal-injury-scotland They are helping such people in so called “claim injury”. You need to know your rights as well as possible.
