Common Questions and Answers about Knee injury evaluation


Avatar n tn had a total knee replacement almost 2 years ago fell and landed on knee knee is bruised and feels as though something is sticking me.
Avatar n tn My left knee legiment is damag, i have very serious pain in my left knee.
Avatar m tn Hi there! Well, without a physical evaluation and probably a few tests, it would be difficult to point out the cause of your discomfort. I would suggest an evaluation by an orthopedician to look for injuries in and around the knee joint like fractures, ligament/ tendon tears etc. Meanwhile I would advise keeping the knee partially immobilized. You may use a crepe bandage for the same. Alternate hot fomentation and ice-packs with some tylenol/ NSAIDS may provide some relief as well.
Avatar f tn Seems likely you dislocated your patella rather than your knee. Knee dislocation is caused by extreme trauma. That said, a dislocated patella is no trivial event either. If not treated properly, this can lead to recurrent dislocation and the need for surgery. Proper treatment includes draining the knee, physical therapy, and bracing. I would suggest evaluation by an orthopedic surgeon.
Avatar f tn Its hurts a moderate, bearable amount when walking around but when standing up from sitting or kneeling or when I bend the knee I feel sharp intense pain around the knee cap. Does anyone have any idea of whether this is a serious injury and if so what it could be or if should I not worry?
Avatar n tn In January, I feel off the edge of a side walk onto the pavements a few months ago and hurt my left knee, leg and ankle. It swelled up and was bruised from my knee, down my leg, the top of my foot and my ankle and inside of my foot. A few days ago I fell again injuring the same knee after getting up out of bed. I hyper extended my knee with all my weight of about 285lbs on it, And once again it is bruised just like before. I can walk and move my foot and leg.
Avatar m tn 42yo male injured Left knee while sparring MMA. Impact/tackle to lateral side of knee caused a pop(felt like knee moved), immediate pain, swelling gradually became worse and pain persisted for days. one week later...stilll limping badly and the knee feels loose/empty while walking and wont straighten when I walk. Knee brace provided makes the knee feel very stable though.
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 f tn a year and 1/2 ago I fell down some stairs and landed on cement causing a left knee injury, after a few weeks of physical therapy the swelling and general soreness was better but I had a burning feeling under my knee cap, clicking and grinding, the Dr told me it was normal.

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 f tn I recently had a knee injury at work I was walking down a ramp and due to ice I fell forward onto my left knee. Since then I have had alot of bruising on my knee and swelling in my ankle. I often get shooting pains down my leg and when im trying to sleep and lay my leg flat i get extreme pains in my leg and knee. Recently I have had some grinding noise in my knee when my leg is bent and gets moved from left to right.
Avatar m tn I've had to take a FCE for a knee injury sustained by a cellphone driven Dodge Neon trying to use the same peice of road I was on with my Harley. After I was relesed from surgery, physical therapy, treatment and deamed at MMR (maximum medical recovery) the at fault insurance company requested that a FCE be performed.
Avatar f tn Having severe knee pain Both Knees. No Injury or swelling.. f pain feels like it is in the bone. When I walk it feels like I am walking on my knees on hard surface. I am 59 years old...
Avatar m tn 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. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history.
Avatar n tn i can put wieght on mi leg but it hurts a bit pain is mostly on left side of.left knee kinda below the knee cap on tge left srry for mistakes im typing.on phone please help im just worried tht the doctor got lazy cuz it was a busy day..
Avatar m tn So my question is how am I supposed to recover from an ankle injury if there is an accompanying knee injury. Why was this never checked?? I understand that two surgeries at one time cannot be done, but it is just now being explored because of the instability. Also, my PT has changed so I may have been hurting my knee since the weight-bearing. Also, I was told to stop wearing the ankle boot as it will cause pain. But I have been on it for 8 weeks.
Avatar n tn I've always needed a day or so and I was back playing. This time though, the knee is particularly sore and the there is discomfort with range of motion. No swelling or shifting of the knee and definitely no popping sounds. Does that type of injury contribute to a re-tearing of the ACL?
Avatar f tn I started having unexplainable severe knee pain. No idea how or why. No injury, no swelling, no bruising. I had my knee examined, Xrays done, and everything looked great. I decided to change the sneakers I was using to exercise and actually use sneakers when using the eliptical at home and as God is my witness - problem solved!!!!!!!! No more knee pain. I hope my story helps someone.
Avatar f tn My knee has been inflamed for no reason, the affected ares cause a lot of pain. it doesn't hurt me nor do I experience any pain. Only when I move upstairs or downstairs i feel the pain. What can it be, I am very much worried.
Avatar m tn my Ortho told me that i had arthritis behind my knee cap, he shot my knee with cortizone, after two day i felt like knew but after two months, i started to feel the knee pain again, i went to see the doc again, he recommended another shot, i agreed, he tried to give me the shot without any anesthetic, so when the needle went in, by impulse i pull my knee back, and ever since then, i cannot bend my knee, i cannot kneel down, it hurts constantly, its an undescribable pain, worst than ever before.
Avatar m tn Well, without knowing the relevant clinical details such as the injury incurred etc. or a detailed clinical evaluation. The recovery time would vary with the type of injury, associated complication etc. and could be anywhere between a few days/ weeks to a few months. I would suggest discussing the situation, the suggested management plan and the expected prognosis in detail with your treating orthopedician. Hope this helps. Take care!
