Common Questions and Answers about Knee injury lcl

knee

Avatar m tn ve read, this usually happens along with other damage to the knee, but my Orthopedic Dr. said I was lucky and that did not happen, only the LCL was damaged. My knee does not feel very unstable and there is minimal pain with day to day walking, more pain with the leg is brought inward (typical from what I've read). My Dr. wanted to get another opinion from a knee specialist in her practice and they both agreed that I should just go straight to PT.
Avatar m tn Kissing osteochondral impaction injury noted involving the anterior weightbearing lateral femoral condyle and adjacent tibial plateau with a subchondral trabecular fracture within the anterior and lateral tibial plateaus. Appearance consistent with a subtle 1-2mm depression anteriorly within the lateral tibial plateau towards the tibial eminence. Medially there is a small focus of osteochondral impaction within the anterior medial tibial plateau towards the intercondylar notch.
1148201 tn?1262165258 I was in a motor cycle crash a year and a half ago and due to other problems that have been resolved they can now fix my knee. After a MRI they have found that I have only MCL in my left knee in tact and need to have a operation to fix this. I have found many people with ACL tears on you tube but can't find info on the problems I have in my knee.
Avatar m tn I have the same type of pain. Can't put any weight on the knee on the ground or I get a burning pain. But the doctor said there is no tear but isn't tell me what it is instead.

There are collections in and around the knee joint as described.

Avatar n tn MRI of the knee was performed using the following sequences: axial, sagittal, and coronal proton density weighted with fat saturation; sagittal proton density weighted; sagittal 3D GRE. 284 images were presented for interpretation. Comparison(s): Right knee radiograph, 12/7/15 FINDINGS: Menisci: Medial meniscus: Horizontal tear of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus with extension into the body.
Avatar m tn This happens due to mal-alignment of the knee cap on bending the knee (and hence any imaging study has to be taken with the knee bent), injury to the knee (you may have sustained it in past), flat feet, over tight or over lax muscles around the knee joint. All these aspects will have to be investigated by your doctor. Other possibilities are bursitis (inflammation of fluid filled sac over joints), tendonitis (inflammation of cords joining muscles to bones) or due to weakness of patellar bone.
Avatar f tn The ACL,PCL,MCL,LCL, and extensor mechanism are intact. There is mild intermediate intensity intrasubstance signal within the menisci but no discrete tear evident extending to an articular surface. The medial and lateral compartment hyaline cartilage appears preserved. With the knee in extension there is lateral patellar tilt with approximate 3mm lateral patellar subluxation. Probably mild fibrillation hyaline cartilage patellofemoral compartment predominantly lateral.
Avatar f tn Anyways I was going down a steep hill on a bridge, and I was going about 23 MPH and someone on a bike cut me off so I bailed after swerving and flew about 15 feet and landed directly on my right knee first, and I cut it open and a bunch of other stuff, but after a few seconds I got BA k up and skated off albeit my knee felt like it was rubbing and catching, which I've had happen after a couple ligament sprains.
1148201 tn?1262165258 Also I have nerve damage causing foot drop that they say they will attempt to fix at as well. They need to graph from both hamstrings to my knee as well as a piece from my other knee. Many holes and much more pain. Ouch need some support to get though this one just a word from the wise. If you have had any done please let me know what you experienced as I find very little on web about multiple ruptures.
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 f tn I am 17 years old and when I was 14 I had ACL, MCL & LCL reconstructive surgery, along with a torn artery. So painful it took forever to heal. I went to physio blah blah blah then I had to get a second surgery to remove a calcium build up and remove scar tissue to help my knee bend. My surgeon said I will always have a bad knee but i didn't think it'd get this bad. It just aches and aches and it clicks when I go up stairs. And I can't bend it all the way.
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.
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 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?
