Avatar n tn You have to be sure that you did not injure any ligament in your knee joint. Follow up with an orthopedician for a thorough examination and go for an MRI if required. Apply ice packs intermittently and take NSAIDs and do not squat till you have healed from the injury. Take care!
Avatar n tn Thanks for the information we are getting a new health insurance and I will go back to another doctor as soon as I can. It is just weird and I figured that 4 months seemed like a long time for a bruise to heal. Thanks again!
1524655 tn?1291420532 t have a blood supply and therefore it has a capacity for healing. In general, partial thickness defects do not heal by themselves. In addition to not having a blood supply articular cartilage also has no nerve supply. This is in contrast to the bone immediately below the cartilage which is abundantly supplied with both nerves and blood.
Avatar f tn I used to play a lot of soccer and have not in years, but I remember having knee and ankle pain quite often, enough so that I frequently wore knee braces and wrapped both ankles. I now play golf, and after playing one day I noticed some knee pain. There was no specific incident or sudden onset of pain - it just gradually appeared. I also started hearing more popping noises than usual, but now it hurt and I felt movement.

182884 tn?1259312906 If the ligament injury is not treated or it is long term or grade III then it gives rise to instability of the knee joint. In long run this leads to osteoarthritis. Ligament reconstruction or repair of ligament will depend on the technique adapted and there are chances in your case that the healing may take time as considering your age. Discuss with your operating surgeon. Take care!
Avatar m tn 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. Pain worsens on walking. It can also be tendinitis due to inflammation of tendon at the knee joint. You will need X-rays and MRIs of the knee to find the exact. Treatment will follow correct diagnosis.
Avatar f tn Hello everyone, My name is Tamika a 16 year old who has recently joined MedHelp seeking advice about a knee injury that i have had for quite a while. On the 23rd of August 2011 I injured my knee during a PE exercise in which we had to carry classmates across the field while running. I had to carry a girl who was heavier than me and while running it felt as if my knee had snpped back and I fell to the floor due to the pain and instability of my knee.

182884 tn?1259312906 good morning Fluffy, i've had an ACL repair of my right knee oh about 8 years ago and it was not healing on its own, i did have a little less pain but my knee was not stable and required the use a "quality knee support" which a script was written by the doctor and the insurance paid for it. i used it for almost anything i did after the ACL surgery only because i was afraid of injurying it again. and your right, the doc.
Avatar f tn If these is no specific cause defined, you may try resting the knee and hot-fomentation along with some NSAIDS. If these do not seem to help in a couple of weeks, you may consult your orthopedician for an evaluation to rule out secondary causes. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar n tn Since you heard a popping sound, in all probability, it is a ligament tear or meniscus injury. The location of pain can shift with healing, and often residual pain remains due to incomplete healing. So, if you cannot get a MRI for confirmed diagnosis, arthroscopy is the next option. This will also allow debridement and menisectomy or partial or complete removal of meniscus if need be.
Avatar f tn Why the fluid build up after it seemed to be healing and how can that much blood accumulate without clotting as the injury was weeks old? Sorry for running on..I'm just at my wits end with this...and yes..
Avatar m tn m wondering at what age can ligament damage happen and has anyone had a child with a knee injury...a similiar one?
182884 tn?1259312906 In the meantime, can anyone tell me what they think about my injury to my knee, and how do Dr.s deal with torn ACL or an injury like myne? What can I expect? I am tired of being in pain and am glad that I finally got this MRI. I knew my knee had been hurt somehow, that it wasn't just my imagination, I only wish I could have seen a dr. sooner. Is my injury too old to do anything about? Please anyone can you give me any ideas at all? Some answer is better than none at all!
Avatar n tn And yes it will be painful. Probably more painful than the injury. I wish him fast and complete healing. Please take care and let us know how he is doing.
1595781 tn?1297287872 I now have a rod inside my tibia with a screw just below my knee and three screws above my ankle....As of right now the healing process seems to be going perfect and right on schedule. My question is after i am 100% healed is it a good idea to get all the hardware taken out. Keep in mind i am very active person in all season but when it comes to skiing i hit 90 foot park jumps and drop cliffs in the backcountry that could be 40 feet or more....
Avatar m tn This lasted maybe a month when the scabbs started healing. Now 2 years later im left with scars and knee pains. I have a dream of being able to do Parkour but I know I wont unless I find out whats wrong. My knees hurt when running for over 5-10 minutes especially in the cold. My knees feel..Loose (is the best way to say it) when sitting. ALso when standing on m knees they hurt really bad. Whats wrong?
Avatar f tn You cannot move around without a knee brace. You should also not flex your knee and you should not do any weight bearing on the affected leg. It is better that you plan your surgery. Your orthopedician should grade the ligament tear properly and if it is a minor Grade I injury then below knee cast for 8 weeks followed by physiotherapy would be sufficient. For Grade III and complicated Grade II tears you would need arthroscopic surgical repair. Take care!
Avatar f tn Also being only 3 months post op, your knee is still healing. I very much think that you aggravated your knee and probably just have some fluid in the joint which is accounting for the popping sensation. It can take a while to get better. I would suggest some over the counter NSAIDs for the discomfort and swelling, as long as there is no contraindication for you doing so. I would expect you should notice some improvement by two weeks. Good luck to you!
Avatar m tn I am very active and cycle about 5 hours a week and about 5 hours a week of more weight bearing exercise. I have not been able to regain full flexibility to the knee, I am lacking 10 degrees of motion. I ice my knee most every day after exercising. I completed a series of 3 shots of Euflexxa about 6 weeks ago and have felt no difference from that. I started physical therapy twice a week for the last three weeks which lasts about 1.
