1587585 tn?1309432260 If you hurt your knee doing side lunges, this may be a meniscal injury or to the MCL. Pain in the back of the knee may be local inflammation, or swelling. Continue the NSAID's, rest, and ice; if the pain persists, see an orthopedist.
Avatar f tn Unfortunately, it is imposible to make a diagnosis from this simple description. If your pain is persistant, and does not respond to a short period of rest or activity modification, then I would suggest evaluation by an orthopedist. At that time, your doctor will take a thorough history, examine your knee and entire lower extremity, and use xrays and MRI if necessary, to formulate a diagnosis. After a dianosis is reached, then a treatment plan that makes sense for you canbe instituted.

Avatar m tn Consult an orthopaedician for evaluation and you might require an arthroscopic exploration of the knee joint and ACL reconstruction under regional anesthesia. Xray of the leg including knee joint is of course required to rule out bony fracture. You can take over the counter NSAIDs, apply hot fomentation etc for supportive therapy. Hope this helps. Take care.
Avatar n tn Fast forward to now, about two years after the initial pain subsided I have started up a work out program that includes 45 minutes to an hour of daily recumbent bicycle cardio. All was well for a few weeks but all of a sudden I got this knee pain. It started out as just a light pain but has gradually gotten worse over the last week (with continued exercise). The pain is on the inside or the left side of my right knee. It seems to run along the edge of the knee cap.
Avatar f tn or taller, as I have a lot of grinding and pain in my my First question is, How can I do cardio, so I can loose weight?? I walk on the treadmill and can jog for a little bit before my knee tightens up, then I just go back to a 3.0 MPH walk.

Avatar f tn I twisted my knee and when it happen I heard and felt a pop on the inside of my knee. Also, now when I walk, I have pain and crackling on the outside, under the knee. When I am walking and I have to turn or piviot, I get a pain that runs the inside of my knee. And now I can just be standing there and my knee feels like it is really loose and feels like I hyperextended in, the knee pushes back. How ling should I wait to go to the doctor or should I continue to try and heal it myself.
Avatar n tn Hi! I'm sorry to hear about your knee. It sounds to me like either a ligament or possibly cartilage. Does it feel unstable or is it still giving out on you? Does it ache after sitting for long amounts of time? Is your pain off to the side of the knee or under your knee cap? These answers may help me know better.
Avatar f tn You need to know I have arthritis in both knees and no cartilage left under knee caps. My knee instantly was hurting but mostly when trying to walk normal. I can walk stiff legged and it doesn't hurt too bad but flex the knee and it has sharp pain like i have walking up and down stairs because of the knee caps. I sit in a normal position but lifting foot causing lots of pain around knee cap. I'm guessing I probably pulled something. Have put ice on it and taken ibu.
Avatar m tn I played college soccer but had to retire due the most recent injury to my left knee. That injury happened around the second week of August in 2009. It was nothing traumatic other than being kicked below the knee causing a contusion to my shin and then started causing pain in my upper knee.
Avatar m tn I was playing volleyball and jumped and landed on my knee, the first few days my knee hurt too bad to walk on. It has been about a month now and I can walk with no problem but if I turn or back up or go down or up hills it still hurts sometimes. It also feels like something is moving when I turn sometime .Could this be serious? Should I see a doctor?
Avatar m tn From there hopefully your doctor can perform tests to find out if there is tissue damage, or what the exact injury is. Until then, I highly suggest you stay off of your knee as much as you can, i.e. no running. You can try ice, or heat, whichever feels better. I would be careful when stretching as well in case you aggravate your knee. Good luck and I hope your knee feels better soon!
Avatar m tn I recently had an MRI for a knee injury. The diagnosis is "an unstable tear involving the posterior horn and body with vertical and horizontal components extending to the articular surface. The tear extends into the posterior horn root attachment". WIll this injury require surgery?
Avatar f tn If it is a chronic pain you have to rule out conditions like muscle or tendon injury to your quadriceps or injury to any of the ligaments in the knee. It can be conditions like bursitis or also nerve involvement. I would suggest you to follow up with an orthopedician for an examination. Take care!
Avatar f tn Do you have a knee brace to provide the stability your knee lacks? Some of the exercises that are used to regain strength and function in the injured leg are heel slides, leg lifts, glute sets, bridges, heel raises and mini squats against a wall. The thigh muscle, or quadriceps, is likely to become weak after an injury. Quad sets and straight leg raises can help strengthen the quadriceps. All of these exercises should be done slowly and should not cause pain.
Avatar n tn I am now exercising with an instructor, who is trying to get me back on my feet and help me with my knee injury and I am taking it really slowly. We always start with 3 min on the bike or the cross-trainer on a very low level just to get me wormed up and only that will do it for me and I'll be dizzy for the rest of the session.
Avatar m tn I had a basketball injury today- a player ran his knee into the side of my knee. I went down immediately. I thought it was a knee injury b/c that is what hurt first. Then the pain moved down my leg to the top of my ankle just above the foot. Then the pain moved back up just below the knee to the outside of my upper calf - between the calf and the shin bone. My left side is sore and has a numming feeling. What do you think this injury is?
Avatar m tn I made it about a 1/4 mile in and came up limping with extreme pain in my left knee (felt like BAD runners knee) so I thought I should keep it to stretching for the day, as I hadn't even done that for a month. In the days after that (now about a week later) my back hurts (lower, just left of the spine) more than it did a week after the initial injury and I have a shooting pain down into my hamstring through the buttocks.
Avatar f tn Doing crunches and planks won't get rid of that pesky belly fat, you will have to take up a form of aerobic exercise to burn fat. For a recovering knee injury I'd suggest either taking up swimming or even cycling.
5245618 tn?1365687749 Pain in the front portion of the knee can be caused by bursitis (inflammation of the lining of the joint, possible due to injury while playing), arthritis, or injury to the patella cartilage (front portion of the knee). Pain on either sides of the knee is usually related to meniscal tears, injuries to the collateral ligaments, and even to arthritis. Pain in the back of the knee can be caused by arthritis or Bakers cysts (cystic accumulation of synovial fluid, also causes a swelling).
