Knee pain on extension

Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain on extension


Avatar f tn I had a menisectomy in June. Since then I've not been able to reach full extension and have suffered from a small patellar tendon tear that my dr. is telling me should heal itself. My pt has told me he thinks my lack of estension which is about 15 degrees is due to my tight hamstrings and soft tissue problems(tendonitis), but my dr. wants to try a manipulation then cast me to get my extension back. I've been doing some research on the M.U.A.
Avatar n tn er and swimmer I am pretty fit and active in every other way, and do not experience any other pain in any other knee position or activity with my knees. There is no pain inside my knee joint or to the sides or behind my knees. When I press my fingers on my knee I can feel that is a bit grissly in small areas with some sensitivity. Any ideas on the reason would be appreciated.
1649111 tn?1301441468 Problem is, just for the last year my left knee began to produce abnormal sounds on flection and extension without any pain. But I noticed that the bone make abnormal move and slightly change its position when I do full extension, and the sound is heard at this point. Any help?
Avatar f tn Well you have a tear of the meniscus (which is cartilage in your knee that acts as a shock absorber). You have a tear on the inside of your knee and the outside. You have a bone bruise on the front inner portion of the top of your tibia and fluid in your joint (effusion). You really need a knee scope!
Avatar n tn It has been 14 months since my tkr. I don't have full extension of my knee, therefore my leg is shorter and I limp. This has caused problems with ligaments shortening and heel pain and pain in my right hip. I did all the exercises dutifully and have been to physical therapy for two extra sessions (each was at least 6 weeks). I don't know what to do at this point.
Avatar f tn I had tkr 10 weeks ago and have soooo much pain and clunking noises and catching when i bend my knee. I have good flex, (135 degrees) and extension is 0. I have faithfully been doing my exercises but something seems WRONG. As the swelling has been going down this problem seems to be getting worse. Does anyone have any help, suggestions, or ideas what could be wrong? Has anyone else had this same problem?
Avatar m tn sudden knee pain during pt and continued pain interior medial aspect. medic took xrays - all ok. Soft tissue issues. therapist can feel the popping of (muscle, ligament, tendon???) during flexion and extension. It feels like something has to pop over something else for leg to straighten. It hurts when it does. Occurs during weight-beating and non weight bearing. Therapist says muscle may be increasing in bulk but not stretching out causing other soft tissues??? to have to pop over them.
Avatar n tn You should take vitaminB supplements and should consult a physiotherapist for pain management.Neck and back extension exercises will help you.Avoid bending and lifting heavy weights.
Avatar n tn is talking about putting me under and manipulating the knee to gain full extension ( fun,fun,fun ). He also said that some people just have a lower pain tolerance and that could be preventing me from reaching full extension. I find that pretty funny because I'm a pretty tough guy, having done martial arts for years. Right now I feel like having ACL surgery with this Dr is the worst mistake I ever made in my entire life.
Avatar f tn There is swelling on medial side of knee as well. and lots of stiffness. My ROM is good, Extension 0 and Flexion 133. I had uncemented TKR, and latest Xray showed bone has not fused with prosthesis yet. Can someone help me. Thanks.
Avatar m tn I feel I have more damage on the tibia too because I have lots of pain below my knee cap and in my lower joint line behind my knee. My concern is that this surgery will fail for me because of the size of defect, the fact that this has been going on for 2 years, and the amount of other damage I have in other areas of my knee.
Avatar f tn My left was done in Janurary 2007 and my right knee was done in July 2007. Since the surgery I have had severe pain espically on the outside of the right knee. I have pain in both knees and limited movement in both. The pain has not gotten any better with time. I did have an injection of steroids about 6 months ago that helped some but things have not gotten any better since. Has anyone else had this sort of problem?
Avatar m tn I can't bend without pain in my left knee and MRI stated that I had loculated fluid collection posterior and superior in the knee measuring approximately 4.2cm in medial-to-lateral dimension and 2.0cm in craniocauded dimension.. All non aggressive with multiple thin septations but no extension into the bone or muscles possibly representing a large soft tissue GANGLION or LOCULATED EFFUSION.
Avatar n tn For being almost 50 I am in good phyiscal shape (except for my knees ) Before the surgery I did 45 minutes on the Elliptical 3 days a week and other strength exercises the other 2 days. The arthroscopy was done on my left knee which is almost bone on bone. He cleaned out the torn Meniscus the best he could and also removed a loose body that was moving around in there. He said I am probably looking at having a TKP within a year to a year and a half.
Avatar f tn But I always seem to be extending thru this constant pain. Does everyone experience this pain? Will it ever go away?it is almost 11 weeks now and I am getting concerned that I may never lose this tightness. I need some reassurance. Please someone.
Avatar m tn Ugh, that's a long time to have bursitis. I have, however, heard of it taking up to a year to get fully better. You should be at that point, right? hope so! What do you do to treat the bursitis (or did you do)? I know it is not feasible for everyone but a physical therapist would be great to see as they can help guide you on what types of exercise are best for your personal situation. But either way, stretching is important for all with bursitis no matter its location.
Avatar f tn I couple months ago I fell and hit my knee on the hard part of the extension cord. I am experiencing a little discomfort and it looks dented. It also cracks a when I bend it.
Avatar m tn My Daughter 13y/o, weight 45kg, has right knee pain isolated to the lower outside area of the knee. This pain is preventing the use of the knee and is sever when the knee is bent. She has limited movement with out pain. Currently we are into the 9th week of pain. Other symptoms are numbness of the knee area, Limited swelling (not much) and currently in the last week she has started to get sharp stadding pain, ocassionally the knee gives way.. The injury happened during a jazz dancing fall.
Avatar f tn If you are using a Knee Extension, loosen the non-working cuffs-the shin cuff and the front of thigh cuff (they are labeled) . If you are using an Knee Flexion, loosen the butterfly strap but keep 2” counterforce and calf cuff and wear it intermittently throughout the day instead of at night. Please let us know how you are doing!
Avatar f tn In women, the Q angle should be less than 22 degrees with the knee in extension and less than 9 degrees with the knee in 90 degrees of flexion. In men, the Q angle should be less than 18 degrees with the knee in extension and less than 8 degrees with the knee in 90 degrees of flexion.) Follow up near an orthopaedician and surgery is preferred for you so that you can delay the arthritis complications which would require a total knee replacement for later part of life. Take care!
