Common Questions and Answers about Knee problems soccer


Avatar n tn i had surgery on my left knee twice. i tore my meniscus playing soccer. However, i believe i lost the flexibily. my Question is, why dont i have full range of motion? ie i cant sit on my heels if that makes sense. im starting to have the same symptoms in my right knee that i had in my left before the surgery. like my knee clicks pops in and out of place.
Avatar m tn The discoid meniscus can cause problems, usually a popping sensation with pain over the outside part of the knee joint. Conservative treatment consisting of exercises and stretching is recommended. If these treatments do not relieve the symptoms, arthroscopic surgery on the discoid meniscus would be helpful. Best.

Avatar m tn When i do most activities like walking up and downstairs, lunges, and even walking sometimes i get a sharp pain as if im sticking a thick nail into the center of my knee cap down into my knee. It hurts to the point that i have to stop and stretch it out constantly. it is always swollen pops alot of times when im walking i can feel a bubble forming and i have to stop and kick like im kicking a soccer ball and it pops loudly and hurts for a second but then feels better.
Avatar f tn I was in an soccer accident 3 months ago. I went to the hospital that same day and I got told that my quadriceps where strained, my patella got dislocated, and my knee got sprained. However where I got the direct hit got numb and I thought i was going to be able to feel it again soon. It's been 3 months my leg kills me every time I walk and I still have that numb feeling and my hip is now bothering me as well. So now that you have the full story oh and I was also on crutches for 1 month.
Avatar n tn Uneven ground and hot, humid weather are also problems, as well as stairs. My doctor recommended knee replacement for both knees. I am 61, so I'm old enough, but not ready to take this drastic step yet. I'm not afraid of surgery, I've had several in my life. I just don't feel ready to replace a body part. Lately I have been doing better. I still take a glucosamine plus, and also drink one 'Elations' a day. I also take several other vitamins and minerals everyday, including magnesium.
Avatar n tn I had knee arthroscopy surgery 11 years ago on this knee due to a soccer injury in high school. I have never had any problems with it until just recently. I'm concerned however, because I was able to complete a short triathlon 3 weeks ago and had no problems. I've been trying to find out what it could be by reading info online. Is it possible that all I need to do is buy new running sneakers?
Avatar n tn I had the same symptoms under my left knee for a while My doctor here in Holland sent his friend round who is a retired knee specialist to many of Hollands football players. Soccer to my American cousins. He said that the underside of my knee cap is irritated and that causes the weird electric pain. The problem is that there is not much blood supply under the knee cap (of anyone). So he gave me the following excercise to do. (As often as I could).
Avatar m tn Hello! Last week i've injured my right knee. I was playing football(soccer) and I placed my foot quite weird. I felt a pain in the knee. On the next day I had a problem with walking. I felt terrible pain in the knee while trying to rotate it to the side. Right now I can walk without any problems, but whenever I try to put some kind of pressure (such as running or trying to squat) I can feel the pain and my knee sometimes feel loose(?).
Avatar f tn I am a 42 year old female, 6 months pregnant, no prior R knee problems. A week and a half ago, I was walking over a dog gate, tripped and fell, with all my weight on my right knee. There was some bruising alot of swelling, severe pain. The pain is only a little better, hurts to bend, cannot kneel down. Have sharp stabbing pains in it and burning. Difficult to sleep at night. My OB said that my kneecap is bruised, but it will be 2 weeks in a few more days since I fell.
Avatar n tn I've had this knee pain (left and right) for almost a yr already. The symptoms are as follows: Grinding / grating sensation upon flexing the knee. Aching pain at and below the patella. Difficulty straightening the knee. Pain is most servere when putting weight or pressure on it. Pain can be felt when climbing up the stairs, jumping, running and standing for prolonged periods. In addition, pain can be felt behind the knee cap.
Avatar n tn The doc says its a acl tear but the mri scan shows it to be fine,suspect its loose ligaments and previous falls i had to have weak knee. Wonder if anyone has the same problems and what kind of treatments was done please share as well? Thanks.
Avatar m tn In 2010 I had an osteotomy (probably spelled wrong) which is where they broke my shin moved it over, plated it down and realigned my knee. That was unsuccessful, so the surgeon proceeded to try a clean out. Unsuccessful. Then he tried injections for the pain. Unsuccessful. He then referred me to another surgeon. I was told I needed a partial replacement and that was the only option to relieve my pain. So, I opted in on the procedure. After that surgery, I seemed to be worse off than before.

Avatar f tn It feels like my knee (the issue is not the knee itself) is locked and hyper extended when I walk at times. it causes muscle pain in my posterior mid leg when the leg acts up due to tightening of the muscles and how it affects my walk. This comes and goes without much warning. The faster I work, the worst it gets and the slower my speed the easier it gets. Sometimes I can't even walk fast even if I try.
Avatar n tn I have no knee injuries or any other kind of knee problems. I am not on any type of medications nor have never been pregnant. I have had a lower back injury, spells of sciatica and minor RLS.
Avatar n tn But if it gets back to being almost every day, I can't imagine having to continue to deal with that for the rest of my life. As long as the bone is in place, I have no problems. No swallowing problems, no pain, nothing. I just never know when it's going to pop. I do a lot of public speaking and presentations. My greatest fear is that it will happen in front of an audience. The pain is so sudden and intense that I immediatley burst into tears.
Avatar m tn However, if your quality of life is poor and all other options have been exhausted. Knee replacement can be extremely effective. Whether, total knee, partial knee, or patellafemoral replacement is best can only be determined ny examining you and reviewing your xrays.
Avatar f tn Hello, For 8 months now I have had knee pain. At first it was mild, but i got an X-ray done and the radiologist said that everything was clear but gave me a referral for physic, which i did for 3 months in attempt to strengthen my quad muscle... my physio therapist said that it was not working and he was not sure what was wrong with my knee. It has gotten much worst in the last few months.
Avatar n tn Hello, About 6 months ago I started to do some running and after the first month or so started getting pain above my knee, so I stopped. Since then the pain hasn't gone away and I'm getting desperate now as nothing seems to work. The pain is at its worst when going down stairs, steep hills, or when I put weight on it such as in a lunge or squat. It's had periods of getting better then when I think I'm going to be pain free it always gets worse.
Avatar n tn About 8 months [or so] ago I was playing soccer and I thought I strained my groin from not warming up properly [looking back on it]. The problem persisted and throughout my soccer season I have really struggled with my right groin. There is a pain there when I pull my leg in towards my other leg. I tried resting it, strengthening it and warming up and down etc but nothing has helped this problem go away.
Avatar n tn I'm certainly going to talk to mine when I go back and tell him about this forum and we've all got the same problems, being treated the same, and no relief. I, too, have problems walking like in malls and large spaces, with my balance.
Avatar n tn Last Sunday, 9/14, I got kicked in the front of my knee playing soccer and landed awkwardly on my knee causing me to scream and cry in pain. I've injured my knees, ankles, shoulder, and wrists before and have never been in as much pain as I experienced on Sunday. After taking ibuprofen, icing my knee, and freezing it with a special sports spray, I continued to play in the game. Afterwards I was in unbearable pain.
Avatar n tn Hello, February 18th 2007, my boyfriend got a knee injury by playing soccer Diagnose * Both crossligaments were torn * Broken medial meniscus * A hole in his joint-cartiladge as big as a quarter on his medial femur condyl The same week (February 21st) he had surgery in UZ Ghent (Belgium) and they * Took healthy chondrocytes out of his knee to have them grow * Stitching of his meniscus * Clean up The chondrocytes were cultured for 5 weeks and March 28th he has his se
Avatar n tn Would I still be able to coach soccer, do tae kwon do or does that stuff make it worse? One other BIG issue is that I take Suboxone for opiate dependence. This medication is NOTHING like methadone, I can not tell that I even take it. I got into dependency after 9 knee surgeries and a genetic predisposition from my father so ease don't judge and just see if you can help my anxiety. The question is how often do you wind up needing opiates during flares?
