Avatar f tn When I got home, my whole left knee was horribly bruises (I have pictures) so my mom scheduled a doctors appointment. He said that I just sprained it and to wear a mild knee brace for two weeks. I did and eventually the bruising and pain subsided. However, ever since then, it has been kind of like numb. It felt a lot worse in the past, but maybe I'm just getting used to it. It is on the inside, where most of the bruising was.
Avatar m tn I read "I bought a knee brace for work, and sports. It is like elastaprene, or something. It works well keeping my knee stable (ACL injury). But it makes my skin have a rash. Is there another style material brace I could buy that would not make my skin have a rash? " But no answer. Is there any solution?

645800 tn?1466860955 Yesterday I finally got my new foot brace for my right foot ( called a toe off) . Right from the start it felt so weird walking with it on. Probably mostly because my foot has been dropping and turning in for such a long time that I had gotten somewhat use to it. It is made of carbon fiber material and goes all the way up my shin to just below my knee.
Avatar m tn The main reason for this is that you never know when a bad foot drop will hit. Before I got the brace I was tripping over nothing several times a day even though the foot drop wasn't obvious. Since I got the brace I never trip over nothing like before. Of course I don't really wear the brace all of the time. Each evening after I have my dinner I take off the brace because I don't do much walking after that.
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 m tn I may see another doc , however dissapointed that I may be that I told this Doc I sometimes can duplicate the spot / angle of knee slightly bent with weight over the joint - where the knee would just seem to wobble back and forth and feel like knuckles cracking as happens when i fall and he did not even want me to attempt to show him- I have since done this once at home for my wife and she can hear it but also feel it on the top of my knee- its because of this it may not be the main bones but
486038 tn?1300063367 I think they do make braces that come up over the knee but I don't know what they are called. I could ask my sons PT is you'd like.
Avatar n tn Got all the pills and drained right knee. If its not better he has to cut.
Avatar f tn So I have had this knee problem for 2 months. I exercise and had been doing "Insanity". I didn't have a specific moment I injured it. I jus noticed it getting painful over the course of a few days. I stopped exercise all together. I have some knee pain in a few different places around the kneecap and ITB and and uncomfortable "catching" sensation with every bend. I've went to 2 different doctors and had MRI and xray.
Avatar m tn Recently he dove for a ball and his knee swelled up over the weekend. From what I can gather it sounds like a contusion to the same knee. Is this type of swelling unusual and to be expected? He doesn't where any type of brace at the advise of the surgeon. What advise can you provide?
Avatar f tn My son destroyed an ACL playing football -- he lives a normal life without one, but uses an orthopaedic knee brace when he runs or plays sports.
Avatar f tn He gave me a night brace and I was fitted for a walking brace. He also scheduled an MRI on knee and back after my insistance on knowing what caused it. Come to find out, I had a cyst in my knee that was created from arthritis. The cyst was in my knee and traveled down my leg pushing on the nerve. I had surgery about 3 weeks ago. I have a nice 7" scar down the side of my leg. After a couple months, I MAY see some improvement. 15 months out, I should know where I end up.
Avatar n tn My knee twisted when I rolled over in bed. Now I can't go up or down stairs, nor can I put my weight on it while it is bent. What could have I have injured, and what would be the best knee brace for it? i think it's the PCL from websites I've seen.
Avatar m tn The knee started feeling around 80% better about 3 days ago. I wore knee brace every day even to sleep, 2 days ago I changed to a more comfortable brace with those metal hinges on sides, also slept with it. My current issue/question, is 2 days ago I woke up with a swollen ankle and pain when putting leg down to walk. I don't remember any sprain in ankle at all, I had just walked a theme park the night before with no ankle issue or even the knee felt great.
Avatar f tn thanks for your reply, I was also wondering do you think they would follow the same steps as last time regarding the surgery?? like six weeks on crutches again but no knee brace again or would they maybe change it?
Avatar m tn So, i discontinued exercises and yesterday again i felt further increase in swelling. Then i wrapped the knee brace tightly and elevated my leg with pillow and slept. Today the swelling is some reduced. Now my question is that why swelling is not reducing further? Is there any precaution i should take? Or any way to end swelling completely. What is the effect of Enzomac tablet i am taking since a month?

Avatar f tn I was just cleared to get off the brace and crutches one month after ACL reconstruction (patellar autograft) and a meniscus repair. I was able to walk ok with a bit of a limp for the last 2 days. The physical therapist had me go on a stationary bike today for the first time, and I definitely could not do a full revolution, it’s still a bit swollen and I’ve only been able to bend my knee about 98 degrees so far.
Avatar f tn The nurses at the hospital gave me a small knee brace and refused to listen to me because the brace was supposed to be tight enough to support the knee. After a week of wearing the brace I discovered just how correct I was about it being too tight because my foot started swelling due to the lack of blood flow the knee brace had created and made it a mission to walk with a painful knee and a painful swollen foot.
Avatar n tn am using a knee brace... unlocked... I did 60 deg today...I am supposed to be NWb for 3 months...can any one explain why i feel this tightining and pain when i get to 50-60 deg and i cant go anymore??? I am an obgyn and i need to be on my leg by aug 15 and be able to do surgery..I am over optimistic?
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 f tn See your chiropractor, seriously, I have a knee that does that, he works on it and it is fine. In the mean time, try wearing a knee brace to give it support.
