Knee injury rehab

Common Questions and Answers about Knee injury rehab


Avatar f tn I'm suffering and falling often from an old Right knee injury that first happened over 20 years ago. Much fluid retention that must be aspirated.Cortisone injections don't last.Using strong prescription med school for pain management: Percoset, Flexeril and Celebrex. I've been in Rehab hospital to strengthen my R knee or newly related injuries.My PCP and Rheumatologist told me I need a "knee replacement." I have worn and continue to wear knee braces.
Avatar n tn The activity aggrivates the condition. My knee feels week, but no pain. It seems that the things I am doing to rehab the knee cause more of a problem. Am I doing too much, or can this discomfort be expected.
Avatar m tn Most all the knee replacement info I can find deals with replacement due to arthritis, etc. Is there anyone else who has had knee replacement due to traumatic injury esp.after having their leg in a fixed straight position? Any advice on techniques/exercises to regain motion, final outcome of procedure, type of knee installed, complications, etc., would be fully appreciated.
Avatar m tn What is the rehab for this type of injury/surgery? How does it compare to ACL rehab?
Avatar m tn I stopped martial art(s) for a couple of months and then I started practising lightly (no sitting on the knees, no knee-straining exercises). I've carefully practised yoga avoiding knee-straining exercises throughout the last four months (but I've stopped a couple of weeks now just to see if anything changes). I've stopped slackline balancing. I'm in my late 20s and don't have any serious health conditions or allergies.
Avatar m tn I had partial knee replacement in both knees at the end of June. All was going well until 2 months into rehab, I was in an auto accident. Apparently in the accident, I hit my left knee and injured or tore the Patellar tendon. I have a burning, stabbing pain below my knee cap that has progressively worsened. My doc said to tough it out, as there is no broken bones, nor apparent problem with the implant. Its been 2 months since the accident and am not getting better.
Avatar m tn my wife who is 38 years,suffered from a Foot injury & pain,MRI report has concluded QUOTE Undisplaced fracture of the cuboid bone with oedema of the adjacent soft tissues UNQUOTE May kindly advise on the issue and what are treatments for above.

Avatar n tn Take care of them like you would your eyes. Knee surgery has been the most difficult and lengthy to rehab of all of mine. You don't realize HOW much you use your knees til you hurt one.
Avatar m tn Recently, while Olympic lifting (overhead), i suffered an injury when i failed on a movement and my elbow struck my knee, ultimately causing a hyperextended wrist (backwards). I immediately dropped the weight and upper body lifting for 2 weeks. The 2 weeks were filled with stiffness, immediate mobility loss, nagging pain, no swelling, loss of grip strength, and pain when spreading fingers. Most terrible symptom was pain when pushing on bottom of hand like if i were to do a push-up.
5987839 tn?1381926102 I have spasticity in my legs - I take Baclofen in the morning, and before bed to keep it under control. My right knee is about to get an MRI, but I know there is at the least a torn meniscus and I am facing surgery. My MS is NOT happy with that leg! The spasticity has gotten so bad in that leg ... it feels like there is a grip on my leg from above my knee, to halfway down my calf, making it difficult to walk .... in addition to the pain and mobility issues in my knee.
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 Thanks,well no he stayed home all those days at home coz not only knee injury but he had head injury too,so he was resting and didn't go to any pt, he lost his memory.but now he is alright with the memory.the thing is he can't bend his knee.he told me not to worry and forget about it.but i want to you think there is still hope?does it have to do anything with arteries,you think?
Avatar f tn I have been to several doctors and noon seems to know what the problem is. One doctor said that the x-rays show a slightly tilted knee cap and some bone on metal at knee cap. Does anyone know if there is still a chance to get better as now doctors just seem to shove me off. The doctor who did the surgery retired a year ago?

I felt what was discomfort in my knee but ingnored it as it was a busy crazy day. About a week later, my knee really gave out on me.
Avatar f tn I have never had surgery on the knee, I have had no injury to the knee. I exercise moderately and am not considered overweight--well at least for a 53 year old man--but I was riding a stationary bike more frequently (4-5 x per week) and at a higher resistance level for a few month before this pain. If anyone knows what this is, any contribution to this thread would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn 2012) and am struggling. I had a stage four 2cm x 2cm injury to the lateral fem condyle, right knee. I followed the recovery and rehab to the letter, NWB for nearly two months and religiously did my time in the CPM 6-8 hours every day, plus religious phys therapy. I wasn't an elite athlete by any means, but I enjoyed crossfit as well as being able to lift weights, play with my kids, spend long days sightseeing or shopping, etc.
Avatar m tn No symptons before the injury. It was caused by trauma to the knee. from the above described incidents, at the state prison where I work. As a sergeant in our mental health units. The arthroscopic surgery supposedly cleaned up the chondral fracture on my medial femoral condyle. But my problems remain. With constant nagging pain and swelling. And problems kneeling,squatting,bending, and just going up and down stairs. I saw another orthopedic doctor today.
Avatar f tn Four years ago, I was diagnosed with OA of both knees. I was told by the orthopedic surgeon that I was walking "bone on bone" and that I would know when I was ready for TKR. I've been avoiding any NSAIDS because my nephrologist doesn't want my kidneys to be further compromised, but she also has said not to "put up with the pain". I use only Tylenol and that as infrequently as possible. To whom does one go to have the various types of injections?
358594 tn?1211258729 Reconstruction of the ACL is recommended,if instability continues even after leg strength and knee motion has returned. In serious knee injury, do not attempt to move the joint. A splint should be used to keep the knee straight .Take complete rest as your right ankle is injured and do not put weight on your injured knee. Best .
Avatar m tn He went to visit his parents and the next thing I know he was gone...I was like WHAT??? I knew he had taken some pills a few times but he had a knee injury and I never knew he was taking them to get high. It was a huge shock. I don't have any family close to me. My mother lives about 4 hours away and said she would only help me if I never talk to him again. She loved him before he left me pregnant and alone.
Avatar f tn His knee-cap is in 2 pieces, a smaller one on the outer part of the knee-cap and the main knee-cap. What worked for you? They are suggesting a complete cast from hip to heel for 6 weeks to "settle" it down. Then, surgery to remove the smaller separate bone if this doesn't help the pain. I'd love to hear your stories. Thank you in advance.
Avatar n tn Write down all your questions for him/her and they SHOULD be happy to answer them because this really is a serious injury. I would be careful doing rehab, especially by yourself and doing the extensions. at least after surgery because of the location of the tendons you shouldnt extend. I wish I could help more, but I chose to have surgery and thats when you really have to be careful about doing the extensions.
1733156 tn?1310301457 On Jan 13th 2011 i twisted my knee...had MRI showed tear in meniscus and patallae tendon strain. Had arthroscopy in feb to repair the tear. I have been attending physio n hydropherapy ever since up to 4 times a week. Returned back to work on light duties BUT have had ongoing pain everyday...pain is highly increased depending on how much i use the knee...just walking on it sometimes is enough to cause bad pain and sometimes it swells bad.
Avatar n tn ) • Sometimes my foot will feel a little tingly, like my shoe is too tight, but it isn't I've read it takes several months (more than my two) to rehab your knee, but I haven't restarted working out because I didn't want to do more damage if it's something else, so I'm getting it checked out first by a pro basketball orthopedic surgeon later this month, but I'm just trying to see what your opinions are on this and what you think it could be? Any ideas?
Avatar n tn Other option that can be foreseen with such a bad knee would be an knee replacement. To comment on such a surgery requires in depth analysis of your condition.
405614 tn?1329147714 I've been totally in love with Zumba, and am in pretty darn good shape from it. Unfortunately, my left knee has given up on me. Both knees are in bad shape; I've had 5 surgeries, 3 of them ACL reconstructions. I tore the lateral meniscus in my left knee in September. Despite physical therapy & a good knee brace, the pain finally drove me to visit an orthopedic surgeon. X-rays alone were enough to make it clear that it was time for a new knee.
Avatar n tn I got my knee problem initially while running as well. It doesn't mean it happened because of what you did that day, it might have been building up for awhile. I don't know why you haven't seen an orthopedist to get an MRI and see if there's a meniscus problem, which it sounds like it might be, or to see if it's just tendinitis. Hopefully, it will just require physical therapy to rehab, but I don't think at this point it's just going to go away. Good luck.
Avatar n tn As the topic states, I get knee pain in the back of my knee when jumping off one leg while playing basketball. However, the back story should help explain things. About three years ago I rolled my ankle a number of times over the course of a couple of months. It was to the point where I favored it and just started jumping off my opposite, strong leg. This worked for the most part. However, I still managed to roll my weak ankle incidentally while playing from time to time.
