Common Questions and Answers about Knee cartilage tear rehab

Avatar n tn I got on the forums because I fear I have reinjured my ACL. I tore it about 7 years ago. This time, I heard the loud "pop" sound and it was deja vu. I just knew and the ER doctor confirmed. However, after seeing an orthopedic surgeon, he said otherwise. He seemed to think maybe I tore some cartilage but nothing turned up on the MRI. The Lachman's test, he said, did not show much disturbance in my ACL.
Avatar m tn Menisci help to protect your cartilage and to distribute weight across your knee joint. Therefore, the function of the meniscus is critical to the health of your knee. Take care!
Avatar n tn Hi, I am 31 old male, I am 5.3 tall and my weight is 110 Pounds. I play tennis and squash from time to time. This is my second MRI after a 1 year. The previous MRI showed that I have a Medial meniscus tear. I was so happy to see that after 1 year, the Meniscus tear disapparead from the MRI report without doing any surgery or rehab. But this time I did the MRI on my both knees and it looks like I have some issue with my cartillage.
Avatar f tn I am a veteran when it comes to knee problems. Torn meniscus cartilage, 2 knee scopes (arthroscopic surgeries), and finally a total knee replacement. If your knee is swelling, especially in the morning after sleeping, it may be a torn meniscus cartilage. The older we get, the more brittle our cartilage becomes and the more prone it is to damage from impact, etc... I have had lots of injuries over the years but the knee had the worst pain of all.
Avatar n tn I have a large bucket handle tear with some pain and limited mobility. I have been trying to rehab the knee myself ever since the injury. I don’t think surgery would turn out well for me for the following reasons. 1) Dr. Wants to remove 80% of the posterior horn. 2) removal of 50-75% body/root. 3) some degree of ACL tearing (that will not be addressed). 4) high grade/full thickness articular cartilage loss throughout the medial compartment and elsewhere.
Avatar m tn Hello thanks for taking some time to answer my question ever since my knee injury my ankle in very weak if I jump and come down my knee feels like it is going to pop out then it starts to get swollen and I can'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
Avatar f tn Either way, if you have a tear of the cartilage, you need to have it taken care of because the longer you let it go, the more wear it will cause on the joint. A meniscal tear that goes untreated is like sandpaper in your knee and will rub on the articular cartilage and cause damage and can lead to arthritis or an exacerbation of any current arthritis. Good luck!
Avatar f tn there is hypertrophy and surface irregularity of the patellar articular cartilage.
Avatar f tn Is it common for the cartilage in your knee to rapidly thin? I had an xray and MRI was told I had a meniscus tear. I had arthoscopic surgery and had the tear "fixed". I was told everything looks good, no arthritis. Shortly after the surgery I experienced sevre pain and was unable to put any weight on my that leg.
Avatar m tn Symptoms include pain along the inner or outer side of the knee, stiffness, swelling, and sometimes “locking” of the knee. A piece of torn cartilage may get caught between moving parts of the knee joint and causes the sound. A clicking sound may be heard when moving the knee. The pain may be worse when squatting. I hope this helps.
Avatar f tn I used to play a lot of soccer and have not in years, but I remember having knee and ankle pain quite often, enough so that I frequently wore knee braces and wrapped both ankles. Recently I started playing golf, and after playing one day I noticed some knee pain. I don't remember a specific incident or the actual onset of pain - it just seemed to gradually appear.
Avatar n tn I had a bad fall about a year ago where I landed full force onto my knee which resulted in swelling and bruising that went from my knee down to my foot. I had pain on certain movements from then on. When I would get up sometimes my knee felt like it gave out. Also since then I have not been able to kneel down without pain in the kneecap.
Avatar m tn i am in a ton of pain and lose sleep over it. I am a 30 y/o male and have right knee issues from an acl tear from an injury in 2006 with acl repair surgery in 2010. The MRI report from my visit in August 2016 is as follows: FINDINGS: Previous ACL repair with susceptibility artifact resulting from femoral anchor. The graft is torn. The PCL is intact. The fibular collateral and medial collateral ligaments are intact.
Avatar m tn I began to get pain in my toe joints, when this occurred, I must have started to compensate for this by putting more stress on my knees. Currently, I have a lot of knee pain, with my left knee hurting much more than my right. However, my right knee also hurts depending on how it is used; additionally, it also cracks (without pain), when I use it.
Avatar f tn The type of action that caused the injury is not consistent with a cartilage tear. Also being only 3 months post op, your knee is still healing. I very much think that you aggravated your knee and probably just have some fluid in the joint which is accounting for the popping sensation. It can take a while to get better. I would suggest some over the counter NSAIDs for the discomfort and swelling, as long as there is no contraindication for you doing so.
Avatar m tn The findings on the MRIalong with incomplete rehab post-operatively could easily be the root of the problem. My experience has been that the rehab process in patients over 40 can take over 6 months until the patient has complete relief. I also have had gtremendous success using Synvisc for patients in their 40's with post traumatic arthrits. Be aware however, that Synvisc takes up to 3 months to have its full effect. Be patient.
Avatar f tn These meniscus functions to distribute your body weight across the knee joint.The two most common causes of a meniscus tear are due to traumatic injury (often seen in athletes) and degenerative processes (seen in older patients who have more brittle cartilage).
Avatar f tn net/sport-injuries/knee-pain/acute-knee-injuries/knee-articular-cartilage-injury Your accident could have caused this or it could have been happening over time. But either way, that is now seen, it's now a fact of your knee. Sorry about that! RICE is often applied to help with it. (rest, ice, compression and elevation) to reduce swelling. Doctor can give a professional ice wrap. If doc says it's okay, you can take ibuprofen. Some people are okay with just that.
Avatar n tn The report describes a partial tear in one of the ligaments of the knee joint (ACL), with minor injuries in others. Hope this information helps. Take care!
Avatar f tn Well you have a tear of the meniscus (which is cartilage in your knee that acts as a shock absorber). You have a tear on the inside of your knee and the outside. You have a bone bruise on the front inner portion of the top of your tibia and fluid in your joint (effusion). You really need a knee scope!

Avatar n tn Hi. I am a 33 year old very active male and I recently had an MRI on my right knee and was hoping someone could help me in understanding the results.. I have had pain for a few years but it seems to have gotten worse over the last year I have a follow up appointment on the 15th with Ortho and I just want to be intelligent about my Knee (i.e. how bad is this?) issue before I go in. My results are below, any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Avatar m tn Right Knee - There is patchy grade 2/3 chondral thinning of the medial compartment articular cartilage. Grade 2 chondral thinning of the patellofemoral cartilage. The lateral compartment cartilage is intact. Mild marginal spurring of the medial compartment. Small focus of multidirectional tearing of the body of the medial meniscus including a small radial component of tear. Left Knee - There is patchy grade 2/3 chondral thinning of the medial compartment articular cartilage.

Avatar n tn In some individuals, the kneecap tends to rub against one side of the knee joint, and the cartilage surface become irritated, and knee pain is the result. Allowing the inflammation of chondromalacia to settle is the first step of treatment. Avoiding painful activities that irritate the knee for several weeks, followed by a gradual return to activity is important. In this time, cross-training activities, such as swimming, can allow an athlete to maintain their fitness while resting the knee.
