Avatar n tn I have a swelling on the outstide of my knee where there was a little black scab which i peeled a couple days ago, pus came out and I put alcohol and iodine. The pus keeps coming back and the area where the scab was is tender and hard. What can this be? Can I bust it again and treat it again or should I just go see a Dr.?
645800 tn?1466860955 So now I can finally put my pants on, but I then have to pull the legs up above the bottom of the knee braces as the top of the AFO attaches over the bottom of the knee braces. Of course the AFOs attach with Velcro straps as well and they stick to everything as well. Finally the struggle to get the pants legs down again past the AFOs. So far the fastest I have been able to do this is around 10 minutes. Oh and getting undressed is just as involved. So is all of this worth it?
Avatar f tn He did an ultrasound and drew off some more fluid and gave him another cortizone shot. The first doctor drew the fluid from under his knee and the second drew it from his knee cap. It has been several weeks now and his pain is back he still has a little swelling but now both his knees hurt. He wears a brace on both his knees now. He has trouble getting up if he has to get down on the ground for something. We are not sure what to do now because both doctors has told him all his test look fine.
4966610 tn?1362054308 I have a toy/mini poodle named Shadow who is over 12 years old. He weighs 12.5 lbs. He has several serious medical issues including a luxating patella (trick knee) on his right rear leg. Because of his age, and his medical condition, I don't want to chance surgery to repair this as there is more of a risk of fatality from surgery and or anesthesia as he gets older. Unless there is some dire need for surgery, I am looking for a non surgical solution for this problem.
Avatar m tn hi im bowlegged to and im 14 i went to the doctors because of my joint pain and he told me they could fix it so i too matters into my own hands and i found out there are knee braces that can help correct bowlegs im am not sure if they work properly because im still wating for mine to arrive so i hope they work and i hope this helped!
Avatar m tn Hence first physical therapy is started. Other treatments include knee caps and braces, taping the patella to reduce friction, anti inflammatory drugs, custom designed foot wear to correct arch problems if any and rest to the knee joint. Please discuss these treatment options with your specialist. You probably need an initial period of rest for the knee (maybe strapping it in braces) followed by physical therapy. Take care!
Avatar f tn I dislocated my knee in April this year, went to the hospital and they popped it back in. It took from April to July for me to recover, with different knee braces and pysico. A week after getting discharged from the hospital in July, my knee dislocated again however this time it popped back in by itself, it took until September for it to be fixed. I just got discharged from physio last week (November).
233622 tn?1279334905 I am not sure what AFO stands for but they are braces that go from just under my knee down under my foot. They are for foot drop and help support my legs and hips. They are not bad but it makes wearing shorts or a dress not as attractive as it used to be.
1308443 tn?1302693321 I am doing exercise I found online and wearing knee braces during karate. Nothing seems to help. The doctors keep telling me sorry just wait I out take 4 advil when they hurt. That doesn't help at all. Is there something else I should do or suggest to the doctors?
Avatar f tn My doctor told me to wear knee braces whenever I am going to be on my feet a lot. The knee braces help a little but they drive me crazy. My doctor told me that I need to have knee surgery on both of my knees in order to prevent it from getting worse. I have refused the surgery and now two years later they are hurting worse than ever.
Avatar n tn I take Black cherry extract for my arthritis. It is the best thing that I have found so far and healthier for you. I take 2 750 mg pill each night before bed. For the first week I took two three times a day to get them built up in my system. Also a brace or ace bandage helps when I am having a bad knee days to keep them a little more stable. Hope this info helps you. Have a blessed day.
Avatar n tn You could also look up knee strengthening exercises on the Internet. Use ice whenever possible and take Advil or other anti-inflamms. Also, knee braces work wonderfully. Go to your local drug store and buy a good one. Try it out by wearing it for a few days and see if it gives you any relief from the pain. Another thing that might help your pain is if you ask for and get a steroid injection directly into your knee joint. It can usually relieve pain for about a month or so.
Avatar m tn 3) Can I continue with sports such as cricket, cycling and swimming if I wear knee braces/supports? If yes then which kind of knee braces/support? (because I usually tend to injure my knee with the elastic knee supports more often than without it). 4) Would Yoga, magnet therapy or any kind of therapy help heal the knee joint? Thanks in anticipation...
Avatar m tn ve been working all my life in the construction game. Over this past 6 months or more i started having feet and knee problems and breathing heavily after walking up 3 flights of stairs. Soles and heels of feet are sore especially when getting out of bed in morning and when i'mon my knees i'm finding it hard to get up again. Recently i was taken into coronary care after experiencing chest pain and finding it hard to breath. tests were done and all came back clear. Still awaiting dye test.
Avatar f tn physical or occupational therapy, an exercise program, or wearing knee braces, to name a few. You may also consider some topical pain relievers such as capsaicin topical patches (Salonpas is one such product) applied 3-4 times daily when needed. A next step if topical therapies are ineffective may be to add Tylenol on an as needed basis.
457721 tn?1256640798 Hi Addysmom I just wanted to sympathise with your predicament and maybe also get some advice. I too have difficulties with my kneecaps due to a genetic disorder. Doctors refuse to touch my knees, for one because I am "too young" and two because they seem to be scared of complicating my situation even further. Have you concidered wearing "knee gaurds"/"knee braces" to stop your knee's from dislocating?
999692 tn?1250637950 I injured my knee when I was eighteen in a bicycle crash. I am now 28 and know I'd need surgery to fix it. I need a knee brace and to do strengthening exercises so I can still hike, bike, and run. Any suggestions on braces that can withstand such abuse?

Avatar f tn I'm really hurting and I'm about to be 33 wks... think I'm going to go buy knee braces or something. .. weight is probably the issue, I wonder if a cold or hot pack will work. ..maybe icy cold gel, not sure if safe though. . I'm just glad tomorrow is Friday! ! Msunpredictable, id do the same if i were 38. .lol Amanda, how long before it went away, it does feel like I have fluid, but not swollen. ..
Avatar f tn Try applying ice, over the counter painkillers, though these only provide temporary relief. Your doctor will also advise you about knee braces if relevant. You must also be examined for a spine disease like degenerative disc disease or prolapse. MRI spine would show any lumbar disc involvement. Treatment would depend on the diagnosis. You are welcome for further queries. Take care.
Avatar f tn I also hear my knee. Pop n crunches I had braces in the past..maybe I need another one.. Can u re injured ur acl twice??
Avatar m tn I would suggest you to wear proper foot wear and discuss with your orthopedician for use of braces, knee sleeves, arch supports and custom orthotics if these will help you. You can have arthritis at young age and when the joint cartilage is lost then you would need total knee replacement. Take care!
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 m tn About 9 years ago, I had major surgery on my left knee for a meniscus tear and knee dislocation. In the past year I've noticed that my left leg locks up all the time when walking, my left ankle has plantars fasciitis and is in constant pain. And now my right leg is also starting to lock up with the kneecap feeling unstable and the ankle is starting to get plantars fasciitis. I believe it has to do with the way I walk due to my CP.
Avatar m tn Another possibility is Chondromalacia patella in which the knee cap keeps rubbing against the underlying cartilage of femur (corrected by braces, taping, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory, physiotherapy or surgery). This is a likely causein your case, though a meniscal injury is also a possibility given the past history of meniscoplasty. Having said this, at times the noise has no pathology behind it. This needs an evaluation by either an orthopedics specialist or by a sports injury specialist.
