Knee pain when weight bearing

Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain when weight bearing


Avatar m tn 7 weeks after TKR. Constant and consistent pain when weight bearing where prosthesis joins tibia at medial aspect at tibial plateau. Flexion and extension coming along just fine, but pain when weight bearing is slowing every other aspect of rehab. I can't walk without a line of PAIN at this point. Is there a reason for this pain? When will it go away? This really *****.
Avatar n tn Pt has pain while walking but it is bearable. Most severe pain is when off weight bearing and interfers with sleep. Any treatment options aside from more meds???
Avatar m tn I have knee pain in my right knee when I kneel down on it.About a year ago the same knee for some reason unknown to me got very swollen & had to use crutches for about a week. Anyway when I kneel down it is like kneeling on a tack. Then it has a sensation of a rug burn to the touch. After about five times of this happening I looked more closely. On the right lower outer edge of knee cap it gets a swell pocket. It does not swell up the entire knee just this oval like shaped pocket.
Avatar m tn I ripped most of mine during a martial arts fight 8 years ago, and had to give the sport up as my knee could no longer cope with the twisting actions and bearing all my weight on one leg (kind of essential for a kick, lol). I still feel a warning pain if I do certain activities, nearly a decade later, so I steer clear of those. I couldn't afford more than the initial consultation fee, so I never got advice on how to build it all back up again, but I wish I'd have known.
Avatar n tn Ever since then I cannot knee on a certain part of that knee. If I do I get a sharp, burning, stinging pain that quickly subsides once off the knee. I can walk and run on it fine, and have not experienced any swelling or other problems. I cannot feel any abnormalities on the outside. The pain is on top of the knee. Even pushing on a certain area it is is sensitive. What do you think?
Avatar m tn 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. Hard to walk, sleep, sit. anyone else with similar issues. when does this go away?
1252989 tn?1269167813 (X-rays and MRI) Based on the diagnosis start therapy and I would suggest you to avoid weight bearing and exertion on your left knee. Take care!
1587585 tn?1309435860 Apply ice packs and take intermittent NSAIDs, avoid any stress and strain and avoid weight bearing till your recover. Follow up with an orthopedician for the best treatment regimen which should be based on your diagnosis. Take care!
Avatar n tn I saw a doctor, who said it was most likely patellafemoral syndrome, and sent me on my way with instructions to do stretches to strengthen my quads. Originally it was just pain when walking up and down stairs, or during/after exercise, but I'm 22 now, and my knees are horrible. I'm in constant pain, even at rest. When I walk sometimes I get stabbing pains in my knee. I don't know if I'm taking too long strides, or what.
Avatar n tn It doesn't hurt when I walk and I can fully bend and straighten my knee when it's not weight bearing. It cracks when I straighten it and feels like it needs to pop into place or something. Any idea on what might be going on here?
Avatar m tn However, I have terrible joints but especially knee pain. My right knee gives me more trouble than the left. IThe pain that I am experiencing is strange to me in that it is not always there. Currently, it is full force, but not all the time, only in certain situations. For example, if I am just standing straight up, there is no pain. My right knee feels a bit funny, but nothing in the form of pain.
Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? Knee pain is the most common complaint, because it is one of the biggest weight bearing joint in our body with maximum activity. Injury can affect any of the ligaments, bursae, or tendons, cartilage, meniscus surrounding the knee joint. Also fractures, arthritis, chondromalacia and other degenerative disorders can cause pain in the knee.
Avatar m tn I am sure there is a variation of the processes depending upon the individuals severity of the specific condition, There are treatments for knee pain that are very effective compared to when my knee pain originated, There are injections for treating arthritis of the knee that I could have had before my arthritis became so severe, I have pampered my knees for years. Started with knee cracking or crepitus when I was 21.
Avatar n tn And have tried everything he has asked me too. The only thing that has worked for my knee pain that allows me to be pain free ,is pain pills, but I am afraid to ask him for them because of the immediate labeling(which even you are having as you read this) that comes from someone asking for a strong pain medication. Stay off the knee! I can’t, I have no desire to be stationary until I am dead.Limit your activities> I already do, no running, jumping, or hard impact sports.
Avatar f tn Although the pain doesn't show up when I poke or touch my knee, I can duplicate the pain when my knee is slightly bent and I press below the knee cap and rub to the painward side while still pressing. I almost thought it was a chipped bone at first, but now (because of the above) I think it is a collection of fluid and the pain is from the fluid trying to migrate to an area of muscle or tissue that doesn't want to separate. Some of you may be aware of how powerful hydraulic pressure can be.
Avatar f tn It hurt pretty badly for a couple days, but I kept ice on it and rested it over the weekend and it improved dramatically. Now, it doesn’t hurt when I walk, but it hurts when I lean forward and put weight on it while it is bent. Like going down stairs or running. It also popped in ways it never did before. When I put it out in front of me and lock it, the kneecap seems to pop. It doesn’t pop when I am bearing weight on it and lock it.
Avatar m tn Continue ice packs and take intermittent NSAIDs till then and also do not exert on the injured knee till properly diagnosed. No major weight bearing, day to day activities and walking can be done. Take care!
Avatar n tn Do not exert and do not do any weight bearing. If the pain and inflammation continues then you have to go for some scans and follow up with an orthopedician for a proper examination and diagnosis. Take care!
Avatar n tn Your 3 pairs of ligaments in your knee should be intact for proper flexion, extension and weight bearing. Go for an examination near an orthopedician and diagnose your condition. Take care!
Avatar m tn Im not running and limiting any walking to maybe a couple steps, only when necessary but there is no pain when I do so. I obviously want to get back to running ASAP, but not at the extent of further injury. Are there benchmarks that Im looking for? am I doomed to getting more x-rays and MRI's every month thereby spending a good majority of my paycheck on medical expenses? Any thoughts on how long I need the boot, if at all, or the crutches? Expected prognosis?
Avatar m tn The outside of my left knee (the left side) clicks whenever I'm bearing weight on it and I bend it more than about 45 degrees. When I touch it, what feels like a bone just above and to the left of the kneecap pops out a little bit. My right knee (which is fine) does something similar but much more subtle and I can't feel it unless I'm actually touching it. I'm not really experiencing pain, but whenever a do a lot of exercise my left knee gets a bit sore or more sore than my right.
387767 tn?1345875627 Can you tell me when this pain is more? Do you experience any grinding, locking, catching, or giving way of the knee? When did your pain begin, what were you doing at the time, and what were the initial symptoms? Grinding is characteristic of osteoarthritis; locking and catching are characteristic of meniscus injuries and osteochondritis dissecans (meniscus injuries are much more common than osteochondritis dissecans); and giving way is more characteristic of ligamentous injuries.
Avatar n tn Hello I'm 17 years old and any help is greatly appreciated I was at this party about 7 months ago and i had too much to drink and fell on my knee Since I have been unable to apply pressure to my left knee while bending - without feeling pain - Bending my knee isn't a problem as long as i don't put my weight on it - The pain i'm feeling is just underneath the knee cap. I've been to an " knee specialist " and he gave me these 2 injections which were supposed to help .
Avatar f tn I knelt down on my bed on my bad knee sort of to move my daughter and i got this excruciating pain and when i sat down i looked at it and i had an instant bruise there. So my question is.. is my knee broken or shattered or chipped to make it hurt and bruise like that? I have a 2 yr old and a 4 1/2 month old so if i need to see a doctor about this and need to take it easy i would really like to know what i am up against ya know. PLEASE HELP.
Avatar m tn Meanwhile I would suggest resting the knee and limiting weight bearing. If the pain is more than mild, Tylenol may be helpful for pain relief. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar n tn Other than that, no position is more or less painful, but keeping it in the same position (any position) for more than 10 or 15 minutes causes more pain. I have never had surgery on my knee. Putting a heating pad on it gives minimal relief. Pain creams give minimal relief as well. That is all I've tried.
Avatar f tn My right knee crunches when I weight-bear as it's bent, for instance in going up the stairs. There's no pain, and no limit to range of motion, just this awful crunching sound. You understand not a crack, it sounds like crushing a plastic bag, and it's every single step. Thus I am avoiding that occurrence a well as possible, even to rising from a seated position I have to extend the right leg in front of me (making it very difficult to rise on one leg!
Avatar m tn If you are having tendon weakness, then it could be patellar sub-luxation or patellar dislocation. When did your pain begin, what were you doing at the time, and what were the initial symptoms? Do you experience any grinding, locking, catching, or giving way of the knee? Are there any positions that make your knee more or less comfortable? What is the quality of your pain (sharp, shooting, dull, etc.)? Have you tried anything to help the pain and, if yes, has that been successful?
Avatar n tn I'm 54, and I felled on ice on Jan. 30 2010. I had to have a knee scope on Feb. 5. The pain was weight bearing, so I had to have a TKR on May 5. I couldn't bend my knee but up to 75 degree with extensive PT. My knee had build up a lot of scar tissue and it was very painful,so I had to have a manipulation on July 13. Immediately after my manipulation surgery,my anesthetic wore off and I was in so much pain.I had to go to PT right afterwords. My PT forced my knee to bend 120 degree.
