Avatar m tn Take rest, apply a knee band or use a knee brace. Take NSAIDs intermittently for the pain and inflammation to decrease and also apply ice packs. Do not play till properly diagnosed and treated. Go to an orthopedician to get yourself examined and to rule out ligament tears. Take care!
Avatar f tn Hello! Apply ice packs, rest and wear a knee band or brace. Take intermittent pain killers and if your symptoms are present beyond couple of days then you would need scans. X-rays to rule out fractures and MRI for diagnosing any possible ligament tears in your knee is a requirement if your symptoms persist. After the diagnosis you should follow up with an orthopedician for taking it ahead. Take care!
Avatar f tn It feels like someone is stabbing my knee with a knife. I also purchased a knee brace that seems to help my pain when I am doing physical activities and climb stairs. I don't know what to do.
Avatar n tn About 20 years ago I had 75% of my right bursa sack removed from my right knee due to injury. I work in retail and the floor is cement. I've been there 4 yrs. I'm also 51 years old. Lately my right knee has been hurting quite a bit with some swelling at night. I have had to do some heavy lifting the past few weeks and the pain lessons in the morning but still hurts quite a bit. Is it possible I've injured it again or is it possibly being 51?
Avatar n tn My dr wants to send me to physical therapy and give me a brace if the shot helps. If it doesnt help I dont know what he is going to do. Probally the same thing. Im hurting alot and just want it better and it is killing me thinking about having to wait. Could I still have a tear that didnt show up.
Avatar n tn Needless to say before leaving PT I could not use the crutches with the stiff brace so offered a walker and a smaller brace that went above the knee and below the knee with a cut out for the knee. I wore that and stayed off of it as much as possible. Constant pain, heavy Naproxen. 3 wks I went back...primary doctor ordered an xray/mri which I had to wait 2 wks before but did prescribe me Vicotone instead of Naproxen. In 2 wks I walked stiffly in with brace to the xray/mri and had that done.
Avatar f tn And when I am at work and I stand to long and for a little bit my knee will just randomly give out. I wear the brace that was provided to me but I don't want to become so prone to it that my knee adjusts to that instead of being normal. I just want to be able to run and do fun running things again without the fear of re-injuring it again. One thing though from this summer until now I really didn't do much sitting because I was up all the time, which probably didn't help much.
Avatar n tn Meanwhile I would suggest knee rest with probably a brace. Ice-packs and NSAIDS may be used to relieve pain and swelling temporarily. Hope this helps. Take care!
701160 tn?1228417123 Pre-patella bursitis or "housemaid's knee" is quite common in laborers who work on their knees such as carpet installers or tile men. It is also common in wrestlers, as you've already found out. This ailment is an irritation of the bursa in front of the kneecap (patella) and results in a collection of fluid within the bursa, and thickening of the bursal tissue itself. These are often treated with ice and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication.
Avatar n tn It is mandatory to rest the affected knee and also to apply ice packs. Continue ibuprofen for 3-4 days and also wear a knee support or brace. Do not exert and do not do any weight bearing. If the pain and inflammation continues then you have to go for some scans and follow up with an orthopedician for a proper examination and diagnosis. Take care!
Avatar n tn After a cause is diagnosed, it can be managed accordingly. Meanwhile I would suggest knee rest with preferably a brace. Ice-packs and NSAIDS may be used to relieve pain and swelling temporarily. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar m tn Be sure to protect your GI track when taking a NSAID more than occasionally. Sometimes a knee brace will aid it strengthening and support of the ligament - but discuss that with a medical provider. Physical therapy can also be beneficial if this is a more serious condition. Be sure to consult your medical provider if your pain does not improve in a few days or it becomes worse. Your knee pain could be something other than I have suggested - it's simply my best guess.
Avatar f tn I would rule out an injury first, since this is the most likely to be the cause, but if your x-rays and everything check out and there is no physical injury to the knee, you might want to rule out Lyme as well. In the meantime, rest your knee as much as possible. We usually suggest ice for the first 48-72 hours after an injury and then heat works better after that. So use a heating pad for any pain or swelling.
Avatar f tn I only have one concern, whenever I walk sometimes, my knee wobbles and gives out on me and I fall over. I am now in a knee brace but it is not helping me. My knee was swollen for about 1 week and a 1/2, no bruising, nothing. If you could help me that would be great!
Avatar n tn I hurt my knee playing in the floor w/my 2-year old grandson 6 weeks ago. I was crawling & my leg went to the side but it didn't hurt badly. My joints over extended somewhat. The pain & swelling is on the inside of the knee, cannot bear my weight. I self-treated for a while (brace, heat, ibuprofin, worked in a restaurant (bar tending, waitress) and the pain got worse as time passed. I have been to the doctor, had an MRI which revealed swelling & bruising next to the bone.
Avatar f tn We advise you to place ice packs over your right knee for 4-5 times a day for 5 minutes and also take some pain killers. Take care and keep us posted of your developments and queries!
Avatar f tn a bulb can pump in ice water from a separate container into the knee brace to ice it.
Avatar m tn My ortho said there is a cartilage tear from previewing the MRI, and is awaiting an approval for a custom knee brace. However, I know I didn't give the cortizone shot enough time yet, but the inflammation is absent from the shot, but I can still feel the pain come and go, and I know it takes 3-5 days for the shot to fully work, but he stated that my activity is limited to what my knee can handle. Wouldn't this define a permanent injury?
Avatar n tn Contemplating using a regular knee brace which has an opening around the patella, hope this will help when exercising and not cause any further damage. I have to see the physio tomorrow. Still no news on my appointment with the orthoped - hope it comes through pretty soon. No visible swelling around the knee, maybe the ibrufen which I had taken for a week helped. I have notcied that my knees hurt more when I stand for a period of time and then try to squat or sit.
1579614 tn?1296368711 As it is tender you should apply ice packs and also take some ibuprofen for couple of days. Do not exert and if pain continues wear a brace and follow up with an orthopedician for further examination and diagnosis. Take care!
Avatar m tn I have an appointment with the orthopedic surgeon next week, but until then, I have no idea what to do to prevent the constant pain that I'm in. The chiropractor didn't work, my knee brace doesn't work, ice doesn't work, and raising my leg only straightens my knee and makes it feel worse. Any help on the matter to last until my Doctor's appointment is very much appreciated!
Avatar n tn MRI is an appropriate study because of its sensitivity to other ligamentous or menisci disease. Initially, a patient with an MCL injury is treated with ice, elevation, analgesics, a hinged knee brace, and protected weight bearing as tolerated. The patient should be referred to physical therapy. Physical therapy should be done as follows: -Gentle Range of motion exercises. -Muscle-strengthening program with emphasis on medial hamstrings (MCL agonists) and core muscles.
Avatar f tn I was playing soccer when i went into a tackle my Body got twisted around but my foot and lower leg stayed still. I felt a massive pain through my knee on the inside of my knee and heard and felt a snap. My team mates imediatly came running over because they said they heard a snap sound to and that it looked nasty when i did it. My coach put ice on it and strapped it up but i can only put a tiny amount of weight on it before my knee collapses.
Avatar m tn upon leaving they gave me a foam knee brace and sent me on my way. When I got home and tried on the knee brace I found out it was way to large (XXL) to the point of it being almost comical (I'm 130 lbs., maybe if I was a NFL running back it would fit.
Avatar f tn after physical therapy and lots of rest, i was cleared to play lacrosse again. My knee was feeling alot better and stronger. i still wear a brace while i play to try to prevent any further injury. however, i'm afraid its injured again. my knee clicks and pops alot no and there is a piece of what i'm guessing is cartilage that moves around when i'm walking or running etc. my knee feels very weak and stiff like it did before surgery. i have some swelling and sharp pains when i pivot on my knee.
Avatar m tn If possible follow up with an orthopedician for a proper examination and also wear a knee cast for couple of weeks or wear a knee brace. You can apply ice packs regularly and also take intermittent NSAIDs for pain relief. Consider surgery if the conservative treatment fails. Take care!
Avatar m tn You have Grade II injuries to the menisci and also anterior cruciate ligaments. You would need a below knee plaster or boot or brace to control the movements and to heal the ligaments in the knee. You should keep this for at least 4-6 weeks. The other contusions and effusion clearly shows that you have an inflamed knee due to the injury in the left knee and you have some damage. You can use ice packs and also anti inflammatory drugs to decrease pain.
Avatar n tn My father in law had this done and it did provide relief for a while, but again this may only put off surgery for an additional couple years. A custom-made knee brace, if he doesn't already have one, can also ease pain and swelling during activity. My Father in law used to place ice bags on his knees before and after playing golf or walking a lot. Exercise will also help, but it has to be non-impact, like bicycling or stationary cycling.
Avatar n tn or will that hurt it more, i have a knee brace im gonna wear to try and help.
