Knee injury evaluation

Common Questions and Answers about Knee injury evaluation


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 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 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.
2121656 tn?1395674749 Hyperextension refers to a state of over-movement of the legs towards the front towards the knee cap (over-unfolding on the knee joint). This may not necessarily be caused by an injury and aside non-traumatic fractures/ dislocations, could also result from connective tissue disorders, bone abnormalities etc. I would suggest considering an evaluation by an orthopedician or a sports medicine specialist for a detailed evaluation and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Avatar m tn thought I hyperexteneded my knee but now synvisc 1 shot may be the culprit. Waiting for xray results, wearing knee brace. Any thoughts?
Avatar m tn 2) Today I noticed a light brown bruise appearance around the upper portion of my knee and a very small bruise dot somewhere on my injury. What does that say? I also did not visit the doctor, assuming this is an acute injury. Thank you.

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 m tn It has been 6 years since I got my bone spurs and 5 years since I tore my ACL and meniscus. By continuing t0 skate you are risking a greater injury in your knee.
325007 tn?1352560645 Since the surgery I have intermittent pain behind my knee. I believe it is the hamstring tendon. The pain is intense after kneeling or squatting. It goes away fairly quickly. What is the best treatment?
Avatar m tn Evaluation of such an injury by a "school trainer" is beyond and above her pay grade. Prosionally one must rule out a torn miniscus, which is usually established by radiological examination and inserting a trochar to extract fluid and exami ing it for blood. As this took place on school grounds the school eats the medical bills. A turn miniscus may represent surgery and a lifetime problem so sppropriate medical documention is necessary.
Avatar f tn I would suggest an evaluation by an orthopedician to look for injuries in and around the knee joint like fractures, ligament/ menisci, tendon tears, associated inflammation, cysts, bursitis etc. An evaluation may consist of a complete physical examination and a few tests like routine blood tests, imaging studies like X-ray/ MRI etc. Meanwhile I would advise keeping the knee partially immobilized. You may use a crepe bandage for the same.
Avatar n tn Before using linament you should have an evaluation of the knee to determine the nature of the pain. I was developing severe knee pain, and used linament, and the problem became progressively worse, until I could barely walk. The problem was fluid accumulation. They withdrew a large (so it looked) quantity of fluid with a hypodermic needle, and "poof"...the pain was gone, never to return. That was seven years ago. When the fluid is taken out they look for evidence of blood.
Avatar f tn I had knee surgery about a month ago but I just noticed swelling in my knee,leg and foot what can i do to keep the swelling down?
Avatar f tn Please explain this to me...I had an e-ray on knee. the findings: there is moderate diffuse enthesopathy around the knee. Additionally, there is bulky ossific density along the expected location of the proximal medial collateral ligament. This can be seen with Pellegrini-Stieda deformity and remote MCL injury. Recommedning MRI> Will appreciate if you can explain and details about this.
Avatar n tn My guess is that you have an ordinary knee injury and fluid in the knee. The diagnosis isn't as sexy as spondylolisthesis, multiple schlerosis or sciatica, however it is one of the "rule outs". Sometimes this is due to a torn miniscus. You need an in-person evaluation. Often this problem can be solved by withdrawing fluid from the knee, which is examined for blood. This doesn't mean you don't have an exotic disease, but there is "ocam's razor".
Avatar f tn While exercising, you have probably injured your medial meniscus of the knee or injured your patella. Another possibility is the knee cap rubbing against the underlying cartilage of femur. 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. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

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 f tn This really limits my exercises, as many require weight-bearing on bent knees. Is this a normal knee thing, and can I stop babying my knee and start doing things in a normal fashion, or is this, as I fear, bad and only going to get worse?
Avatar n tn I hurt my knee at work and they told me it was a patellar dislocation and it must of relocated it self and they gave me a knee brace and said I could go back to work . but I cant even bare to walk on it it hurts so bad oh they also gave me a shot of steroid in my arm to take the swelling down but my knee still doesn't feel right like it keeps popping out of place what should I do ?
Avatar n tn Hello Bob, A tardy Welcome to the Pain Management Forum. I am glad that you found us and took the time to post... but sorry to hear about your continued knee pain. It's been three weeks and apparently nothing you have tried has been helpful. It's time to seek a medical evaluation. I 'm sure that's not what you want to hear.... sorry! A "pop" could be the meniscus, a ligament or possibly a tendon.
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.
