Common Questions and Answers about Knee injury can't bend knee


Avatar f tn Had he been to physical rehab after knee surgery? It could be that his quads muscle have tightened and may need quad stretches. But still go and see an actual PT to have him assessed.
Avatar n tn I can hardly bend my knee; the most I can bend is like 90 degrees, after that, I feel a bad pull in my quadriceps muscles. My quadriceps muscles have swollen just above my knee cap. There is no color or pain. It is just that I feel a bad pull when I bend my knee, its swollen, difficult to walk because of the knee bending problem, there is no pain on the swollen part, but it hurts my quadriceps muscles when I try to bend my knee. Please give me a solution to this problem.
Avatar f tn Had RK microfracture & LK OATS. Somewhat able to do things with tolerable pain level. Started back with the floor pilaties & yoga. Too much stretching I guess. I started where you are with similiar discomforts. Then started to hurt behind the knee and on the lateral side. Now...I can't stand without both knee fatique and pain, i can't walk without pain. It has ruined me! I'm walking with braces and oh boy if i have to go up or down stairs, HELP~!
Avatar n tn About a year ago, everytime I walked for a straight 10 - 15 minutes I would be unable to bend my knee because of the pain. However, I would slowly keep trying and after 1/2 hour to an hour it would be ok. Over the course of the year the time got longer for it taking me to be able to bend my knee again. Soon, it wouldn't take much and I couldn't bend my knee at all. I have had an x-ray where the NURSE told me I had arthritis and inflamation.
1961313 tn?1326290364 Thank you for the info-this helps me very much-the pain is not in the knee ,it's only when I have to bend down on my knee,(putting all the pressure on my knee is when the pains starts) I've looked to see if there is anything pushing out from the knee but I can't see anything.the pain is to the rt side of the knee extending down the leg on the rt side of the shin bone- it feel just like the skin is splitting open,of course I do have fibromyalgia,could be a symptom of that as well?

Avatar m tn Felt pain in right knee when pulling sofa forward about 4months ago. At the time I had no swelling , no continuous pain or knee wasn't buckling. However, when I've tried running I can't totally put weight on right knee. When I'm lying on my back, and bend my leg there's no pain. When I starighten my leg I can feel pain.ive tried holding my leg halfway and the pain is there around my right knee.ive not been to doctors because I have no "major symptoms".
Avatar m tn I have a quick question: I just broke my femur snowboarding new years eve 2012 (mid break femur snap with a few big pieces floating) and I can't bend my knee past 30 yet. I had my IM surgery (two screws in the hip, one above my knee) on jan 1st (yes New years) and I cant even sit in a chair yet. It's now the 3.5 weeks out and I cant bend my knee yet!
Avatar m tn Once every other day my knee will give way, it feels like something comes loose in there and it partially locks (cant bend it very far at all) and something sticks out on the top right (of my right knee), it is very painful, I need to move it around and it will kind of pop back in place. Its frustrating being told there is nothing wrong with me when it is having quite an impact on my life, and making no signs of getting better what so ever.
Avatar n tn Sorry, I just felt a super sharp pain in the back left of my knee, and something kind of gave away maybe an hour ago. I can't put any pressure on my knee or straighten it, and am elevating and icing it. Before when my knee has locked, there hasn't been pain. It's been almost eight weeks since my original injury. I can't get a hold of my doctor right now.
Avatar n tn i have pain under both kneecaps and is painful to walk on but there is no pain when i bend either knee I have suffered no injury that would cause this and pain was in right knee first and now its both
Avatar f tn Hi there, I was riding a horse and my foot got caught on a panel and the horse kept going. This happened 3 days ago. It's hard to walk. I have swelling and pain on the inner side of my knee. I can bend my knee approx 45°. When I'm sitting or laying down I can straighten my leg but when I'm standing I can't seem to straighten it. My knee cap feels awkward when I try to. When I stand up from sitting i get an excruciating pain and blood rush feeling through my knee.
Avatar f tn Pain in the back of the knee can be caused by arthritis or Bakers cysts (cystic accumulation of synovial fluid, also causes a swelling). So as you can see, arthritis can cause an overall knee pain. Ligament injury causes pain to worsen on walking, bending and stretching the knee. Meniscii too if torn or injured, result in joint instability—that is you are not confident the knee joint will take your weight. Often the person feels a popping sensation on moving the joint.
Avatar f tn Hi..Its been 4 days after my IM nail surgery.But i cant bend my knee.Just a little.Very stiff.Is this normal?Sorry for my English.

1587585 tn?1309432260 t swollen, nor is the area around it. I can straighten my leg all the way (but its sore) When I bend my knee back it really hurts. The pain seems to be coming from behind my knee. What do you think is causing the pain?
Avatar f tn Should I understand that you HAVE been to a Dr. and he said it was a torn ligament? 'Cause that would explain the bruising and the crackling knee bend (that's probably bone against bone sound). That's surgery, dear. And asap. Especially if it bruised, swelled and then went down; see, that tells me the "bruise" went onto the bone ('cause the ligament wasn't there anymore), and you DO NOT want to let that go for too long.
Avatar f tn Towards the end of my vacation, I was walking on a road that went up and down in elevation and started to feel pain in my knee. 2 days later my knee was sore and it hurt to bend it. It hurt a lot more when I was walking up stairs or up a hill. I bought a knee brace and took it easy on my knee, but every once in awhile when I go for a walk of a couple of miles, I get the same pain. There isn't any bruising or swelling. The pain concentrates in the front underneath the knee cap.
Avatar n tn I recently had a 2nd grade left ankle sprain. I am still under and orthapedics care and on friday I had a flare up causing it to swell. Could the awkwardness off walking on it also of caused injury to my left knee as it is now swollen and painful. I can't make it straight. I'm due to go back to work tomorrow after workers comp for my ankle but I dont know what to do right now. Thanx for any help.
Avatar n tn Thus, ACL prevents the tibia from sliding too far forward and also contributes stability to other movements at the joint including the angulation, rotation at the knee joint. When an ACL injury occurs, the knee becomes less stable and there is a sensation that the knee will 'give out' from under them. Consequently, there would be difficulty in doing high demand work beyond the activities of daily living.
Avatar f tn Sound like osteoarthritis (OA) which most often occurs in people over 45, but some younger people get it from a joint injury. Do you have any previous injury involving your knee? A torn cartilage, for example, can precipitate the process of OA. Weight also plays an important role. Do you experience a creaking or cracking feeling within the joint? In the meantime, bracing, splinting, and other orthotic treatments may be useful in “unloading” an arthritic joint surface. Take care!
Avatar n tn Thank you Dr. Vinod for your response. You mentioned a hinged brace. I am currently wearing an immobilizer that extends from just above my ankle to my middle thigh area. Would it be of more benefit to have something that would allow me to bend the knee? What I have found is that my knee isn't very stable without the immobilizer but should I be bending it? Thanks!
Avatar n tn A week ago I went to my doctor because I was having pain in my left foot,.lateral foot pain. It's been going on for about 6 weeks. It would dull ache most of the time with sudden bouts of extreme pain in which it felt like a knife was digging in my foot. He did an xray and said it wasn't broken and prescribed anti-inflammatory medication. A week later and now I can't bend my left knee back and it's hurting to put pain on my knee.
