Knee pain vastus medialis

Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain vastus medialis

knee

Avatar n tn I had an ultrasound which showed possible musculotendinous partial tear of the vastus medialis component. I started PT the day after surgery and continued with home PT. My PT felt right away there was something wrong, as I could not, even with intense PT, bend my leg more than 60 degrees. I was scheduled for an EMG/NCS on 12/21. This was the most painfully horrific thing I have EVER experienced.
1288586 tn?1271904161 They consist of the Vastus lateralis, Vastus medialis, Vastus intermedius and the Rectus femoris. A strain, sprain or inflammation of any of those muscles can also cause your symptoms, including pain that radiates into your hip. The pain can vary in intensity depending on the type and/or amount of injury or inflammation. We can injury our muscles and supporting structures without even being aware of the fact.
Avatar n tn After the swelling and pain, you need to strengthen the quadricep muscle specifically the vastus medialis to prevent future patellar dislocations. Start with muscle setting exercises.
Avatar m tn There was blunt force trauma to my quad tendon close to insertion of vastus medialis, rectus femoris and vastus intermedius. I cannot activate the quadriceps muscle in certain areas due to the injury. The strength of my injured leg is about 60 - 70% of my uninjured leg. Stretching seems to pull the muscle away from the tear site, resulting in decrease in strength and some pain. Most exercises put tension on the tendon and cause the muscle to pull away from where the tear occurred.
Avatar f tn Hi, I had R knee arthroscopy approx 4wks ago and am still having significant pain and swelling. Pain & swelling seem to be mainly on medial aspect of knee from quads/vastus medialis through to medial and anterior calf/shin. Significant swelling just above medial joint line to back of knee. I have a copy of my surgeons letter to gp and it says I have significant changes to patellofemoral joint, grade iv changes to the the trochlea & grade ii changes to the the patella.
Avatar f tn Likely left femoral neuropathy proximal to the motor branch of the iliopsoas; with approx 50% motor axon loss to the vastus medialis, prognosis for functional recovery good if instigating lesion is removed. There is electrophysiological evidence of a left-sided femoral mononeuropathy as shown by the abnormalities on needle EMG of the left iliopsoas, vastus medialis which is clouded by the abnormalities throughout the rest of the left lower limb and in the right as below. 3.
Avatar n tn Almost 3 weeks ago I was at my desk with my leg crossed over and leaning against the edge of the desk. I was showing someone how hard I hit something and not thinking hit my Vastus Medialis Quad muscle (the inner quad muscle to the inside of the knee) pretty hard. Over the next few days I didn't have much pain or discomfort but by the 3rd day I began to have pain in the Pes anserine Bursa below the knee.
Avatar f tn As a result, I experience excruciating pain every time I run over 5 miles now. I have been to several doctors and they all agree that I have Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome. Is this curable? Is it possible to run another marathon without pain? Is there a specific body type for running? I pronate when I run so I buy shoes with extra arch support. Some people think the fancy shoes with the extra cushion and arch support are the culprit for running injuries. What are you thoughts?
Avatar f tn Hi, After 2 months of twitching in my legs I had an EMG done on my legs. Before I did, my doc ran bloodwork for thyroid, diabetes, electrolytes, magnesium, Vitame B6-12 and Vitamin D - all came back normal. Additional work up was done for Ferritin (normal) and CK (also came back normal.) I did my first EMG done a month ago - came back clean but persisting symptoms made me request a second one.
Avatar n tn Last thursday I had my right leg crossed over my left with my knee leaning against the edge of my desk while sitting. A coworker thought it would be funny to hit my knee. They hit me really hard right on the Vastus Medalius Muscle. It was originally just a little sore but over the next day or so i didn't feel any pain. Over the weekend I started to get more pain below my knee right on the Pes Anserinus Bursa that makes it painful to walk and run alot.
Avatar f tn I have moderate denervation mainly rectus femoris and vastus lateralis due to damaged femoral nerve which happened due to the nerve block I was given in surgery. Have been told it won't get better. What is the prognosis. I have pain, weakness and loss of some movement. Can it get worse? Am I wasting my time trying to strenthen leg muscles?
Avatar f tn I also have medial knee pain and am having a nerve block just below the knee in a few weeks.
Avatar m tn Any ideas on what I can do to help eliminate this pain? I will only take pain meds as a last resort; they make me throw up. I have been using arnica, icy hot, ice and heat to help with the pain.
Avatar n tn There is a band of tissue that starts at your hips and runs outside of your thigh down to your knee and is meant to provide stability to the knee during movement. This can cause pain like you describe. Here's information on it.https://www.webmd.com/pain-management/it-band-syndrome#1. Tingling or anything like that? You could also have a nerve issue.
Avatar n tn I currently work as a personal trainer in Norway. This jolting pain is most likely caused by VMO - or Vastus Medialis Oblique, one of your inner thigh muscles - left side of quads. My solution is to get a hold of a foam roller (you might have to buy one, but usually training centers have one. What to do: You need to lie down with the foam roller and put your inner thigh perpendicular on it. Start rolling back and forth applying alot of pressure with your body weight.
987762 tn?1331027953 What's the muscle wastage thing all about? Sorry if its a silly question; do you mean from weight loss or from not being able to exercise? I assumed it was MS related as you can't recall doing anything to cause the pain. I don't really understand much about spasticity and the pains which us MS'ers get. It's all a nuisance though; I know that much! Oh if you don't like taking stuff (I'm the same!) what about Deep Heat or a hot water bottle?
Avatar n tn The medialis has atrophied significantly. I cannot support my body weight or extend my knee at all. Will this nerve respond eventially?
Avatar m tn Hi Doctor, thanks for taking my question. I have possible Benign Fasciculation Syndrome - for about 2 yrs now I've had on-and-off widespread twitching, muscle soreness, exercise intolerance, joint pain, etc. It comes & goes. I had EMG done 1.5 yrs ago (on LEFT side of my body only) that found positive sharp waves in lumbar paraspinals @ lower level only, slight chronic denervation & reinnervation in tibialis anterior, vastus lateralis, & gastrocenmius muscles.

1961313 tn?1326290364 I have problems with my knees,just general stiffness-but one day I had to get down on my right knee and the pain was extreme,it wasn't necessarily in the knee but to the right side of the knee,it felt like the skin was splitting into,I look and the skin looked fine,so I don't know if it's the tendon or the muscle what ever it is,is very painful,in fact I can't get down on my knees any longer
Avatar n tn Hello sarabear and welcome to the Pain Forum: I think what you're experiencing is called Runner's Knee (Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome) The knee is a complex joint. It includes the articulation between the tibia and femur (leg and thigh) and the patella (knee cap) and femur. The most common knee problems in running relate to what is called the "patellofemoral complex". This consists of the quadriceps, knee cap and patellar tendon.
Avatar n tn SO I AM HAVING PRETTY EXTREME PAIN ONLY WHEN KNEEING ON LEFT KNEE--USUALLY DOMINATE KNEE THAT I ALWAYS KNEE ON WITH ALL MY WIEGHT ON FIRST. DOESNT HURT TO WALK ON OR BEND OR ANY OTHER MOTION. RECENTLY I CAN FEEL SENSATIONS FROM A LITTLE BELOW MY KNEE LIKE "PINS AND NEEDLES" BUT VERY SLIGHT. I CAN LIGHTLY TOUCH BELOW CENTER OF KNEE AND FEEL SAME PAIN WITH VERY LITTLE PRESSURE LIKE A SLIGHT RUB.
