Knee joint capsule tear

Common Questions and Answers about Knee joint capsule tear


Avatar n tn Often a torn ACL is a degenerating piece of tissue, the breakdown products of which cause inflammation and scarring within and of the joint capsule of the knee. This causes pain and loss of range of motion. Surgery always involves debriding (removing) this unhealthy and useless tissue. Sometimes also, due to the abnormal motion at the knee after the ACL tears, the meniscus (cartilage cushion) in the knee is also damaged. This may also need partial debridement at surgery.
Avatar n tn Knee pain has many causes, including pathologic processes in the knee and disorders in distant locations with referral to the knee area. In you case it is the disease of knee which is likely to be affected, as your work involved more stress and strain for your knee. Can you tell me when this pain is more? Do you experience any grinding, locking, catching, or giving way of the knee?
623779 tn?1221729664 Hello, The various possibilities for popping,crackling joints are a cartilage tear that is rubbing with the knee joint,arthrosis or degeneration of the joint and arthritis esp osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis(but they are associated with pain).More harmless is clicking of knee joint due to relatively lax joint capsule, that allows more than a usual amount of movement.
Avatar n tn Anyway, the ACL will not heal itself, unlike the MCL. It is located within the capsule of the knee and has a poor vascular supply. This is why ACL's are so commonly reconstructed. Have you been to an orthopedic surgeon or a sports med MD? These people could look and see how significant the damage is to your ACL.
Avatar n tn Then had series of three steriod cocktail shots into the knee joint. Each time the found blood in the joint. Had surgery again on Dec 21 2009to remove the synovial capsule as it was obvious it was being pinched in the joint and bleeding internally. When they did the surgery they found that the synovial capsule was totally fibrotic. I had tons of scar tissue and adhesions. They had to remove a lot of tissue. Seven days after surgery had green discharge coming from incision.
4226456 tn?1354123528 Today it is hurting where my inner thigh connects to the hip joint, but the hip joint also seems to pop out all together, only for a couple excruciating seconds, when I first stand up.
Avatar n tn I had bilateral knee replacements two years ago and recently my left knee has been paining me quite often. I have to sit on the aisle seat in theaters so I can stretch it out or if in one position too long it becomes excruciating. My right knee may get a bit stiff from the lengthy sitting but that is all. Why is the one so painful? I stretch my legs daily and walk stairs everyday at home and in school where I teach. Does this mean my operation is deteriorating so soon?
Avatar m tn 7) Minimal effusion is noted into the Joint Capsule / lateral recess of the Suprapatellar bursa. 8) IIIdefined fluid signals are noted to the subcutaneous fat planes related to the infrapatellar/ collateral ligaments - Contusions. Please help me as to what are the steps I need to take next?
Avatar f tn This is knee effusion. The wear and tear cause degeneration and formation of bone spurs which cause joint pain. A meniscal tear is unlikely when MR shows a focus of high signal intensity in the posterior horn of the medial meniscus that does not unequivocally extend to involve the inferior or superior joint surface. An appropriate trial of conservative treatment is recommended in such questionable cases.
547368 tn?1440545385 Lying on back with knees bent, cross one ankle across the other knee. Pull the bent knee with the opposite arm over the body toward the opposite shoulder and gently pull and hold for at least 20-30 seconds. Some folks are so unstable that they benefit from use of an SI belt to hold sacrum and hips in alignment while they are inflamed. This is gradually weaned away as the abs get stronger with exercise. Traumatic SI joint injuries....
Avatar f tn a surgery to extract fat that contains the stem cells, and than the injection two to three days later. This would require two anesthesia's. I would not inject into the knee of any dog without anesthesia (it can be done without anesthesia in horses and humans {outside USA}).
Avatar f tn Staring in October 2007, I began to notice pain at the front of my right hip joint that quickly escalated. The hip only hurts when I try to lift my leg unassisted -- however, if I hold my leg and lift it, there is no pain. Nor is there pain when I twist the hip. In fact, provided someone supports my right leg, the leg and hip can be manipulated into any position without pain. But I can't lift my right foot more than six inches off the ground unassisted.
Avatar n tn My injections were given following artho surgery for slight men tear, synovial joint capsule damage, a floater and articular cart damage all from a fall. Although the NAET allergy treatment has helped to reduce the intense, feels-like-battery-acid-is-eating-my-flesh kind of pain, I still can't ride my bike (which I used to commute on my bike everywhere at least 20 miles/day). I still can't walk for long, (which I'm an avid hiker, skier, explorer kind of gal).
Avatar f tn I have swelling of my feet and ankles and my right knee which I've had a slight tear of the meniscus. I do have swelling of the left foot and ankle, but just not as bad as the right side. I also have arthritis of the middle of my spine, my neck with herniated disk between C6 & C7 (car accidents in the past), my right knee of course, and my big toe on both of my feet due to bunyonectomies. The swelling is not all of the time but it happens out of the blue.
Avatar f tn Common hip issues are labral tears, bursitis and arthritis these will all be seen in the arthrogram - if something is seen next step is cortisone injection into the joint capsule (guided under film) to confirm that it is actually the source of pain. Hip pain can be referred from lower lumbar, problem is most older people (30+) will have degeneration so it is an easy out for a doctor to say it is probably your back.
Avatar f tn Took him to his vet about 2 weeks ago, they did x-rays and gave a diagnosis of cruciate disease, which they said was his ligament around the knee joint. Apparently this is a very common disease in dogs and although surgery is required to put it right, the dogs leg heals as well as is possible. His vet near home suggested that we go to see another vet in the same practice as he would be more qualified to carry out the orthopaedic surgery.
Avatar n tn That's false advertising - the jars are being returned - what are they thinking putting all natural ingredients into such an obscene looking capsule??? It does appear to contain the best joint relief/repair compounds of any product, however - hopefully they will respond to my overtures and boat-rocking and get an uncolored capsule - many people are allergic to artificial colors or simply want to avoid them.
356518 tn?1322267242 I've had at least a dozen epidurals, sacroiliac injections, facet joint injections, a facet joint ablation, and dozens of trigger point injections. Have done PT 3 times, Chiropracters twice, and Psychiatrist for 4 years, as well as 2 Psychologists who all tell me I'm great and deal with it all just fine as long as I take my low-dose Klonopin and Lortabs. Unfortunately, my Psychiatrist has now moved far away, or I would still see him, as he is a great man and I miss him much.
Avatar n tn Numbness and burning and itchy. It started out the size of a quarter just above my knee cap during my last pregnancy. Docs said it would go away after I delivered because most likely a nerve was being pressed on...Needless to say it did not go away, and has only been progressivley getting worse. It now starts just above the knee cap and covers almost the whole upper thigh in numbness or anything on the back of my leg.
Avatar n tn 90% of the time I get the pain which is about 4 inches above my knee on the inside of the thigh at night and it is very painful and long lasting. During the day I have times when it feels like someone has driven a knife in me but it only lasts a few seconds. I have a spot where you can press and it hurts alot but otherwise it doesn't affect my daily life. I am very athletic and have not stopped doing anything but this is really affecting my sleep. If anyone learns anything, please post.
211940 tn?1267884866 And believe me I know pain I've had 2 total knee replacements over last 4 years.. this pain is in the same range as the knee pain...10 plus !!!!! Best of luck to us all.
Avatar n tn The possibility of having a torn shoulder labrum (glenoid labrum tear) or a hip labrum tear is worth exploring for those who suffer from shoulder, hip or low back pain. Always keep copies of your test results - you never know when you'll meet the right doctor.
Avatar n tn Also I forgot to say I am a 38 year old male with no past major medical problems. I did tear my achilles tendon 7 years ago.
Avatar n tn Most of what I've read attributes this to sunscreen and adults no longer drinking enriched milk, and listed symptoms include general muscle and joint pain. I guess my doctor is reading the same thing. Ok, I can understand where this can create mild symptoms of discomfort. In fact, some articles state that most women won't even know that are deficient. But I am saying that sometimes it takes all I have to walk my dog or get up the stairs, and the shooting, stabbing pains come out of nowhere.
Avatar f tn Good luck with your labs Nov. 16. Have you had any joint problems? I do in my wrist. I don't know if it is connected to AIH and the medication or not. Take care.
Avatar n tn I am still wondering if maybe I am allergic to my razor and gel. I tear all the time and the itching in almost everyday out of the blue it will itch so bad and I know I can't itch cause then I just tear and then bleed and then it just hurts more. I could really use some help, I just lost my insurance so I don't want to go running to the doctor, also I just was at the doctors and found out I have HPV could this have something to do with all the itching and tearing also??
Avatar n tn The pain becomes completely unbearable when I run, it feel like something just under the lowest right rib is about to burst or tear if I don't stop running. I had the whole battery of tests a year ago and the gallbladder, kidneys and abdomen all checked out. I don't have nausea, I have not lost my appetite, and I don't have a fever. The only thing I can say is that this problem only took front and center attention after my appendectomy.
