Knee support for basketball

Common Questions and Answers about Knee support for basketball


Avatar m tn I had a basketball injury today- a player ran his knee into the side of my knee. I went down immediately. I thought it was a knee injury b/c that is what hurt first. Then the pain moved down my leg to the top of my ankle just above the foot. Then the pain moved back up just below the knee to the outside of my upper calf - between the calf and the shin bone. My left side is sore and has a numming feeling. What do you think this injury is?
Avatar n tn I can feel rubbing and clicking in my knee when I walk. What is wrong with my knee? Should I still be playing basketball or will it make it worse?
Avatar m tn I was able to walk and put weight on it. I played basketball sporadically for the following months and it did not bother me. Last week I decided to go back to running after a long hiatus. I was able to jog for about 3 km on Monday and Wednesday. But on saturday when I was about to finish a 5 km course, I heard slight popping and felt slight "giving way" sensations in the anterior-middle part of my right knee.
Avatar m tn Hi, I have pain in the tibia of my left leg, which I think is below the knee cap. The pain started when I was 18, after I got an injury during a basketball game. Now I'm 20 and I still feel the pain only when I engage in physical activity. What's wrong with me. Could these by osgood schlatters disease?
Avatar m tn Last wk I was playing basketball and when I came down from jumping I had a real sharp pain in my knee and could not continue. Around the top of my knee cap is tender and hurts and when I put pressure on my knee getting out the car or anything I get sharp tack like pains under my knee cap and sometimes on the side of my knee and it aches a little, I have really slight swelling but I am able to walk. What do you think it is and what should I do?
Avatar n tn When I was in high school, I was playing basketball and fell on the inside part of my right knee and it instantly went numb for about 10 minutes. I quit playing basketball because it did it for the rest of the year (I didn't see a doctor). Recently, I started playing again and the same thing happened. I fell and landed on the inside part of my right knee and pain shot up through the knee then it was numb instantly. I iced it for about 10 minutes and it felt better.
Avatar f tn We found out last year when his knee was xrayed for pain. He is a basketball player. When pain got to hurt to much He rested his knee for 3 months. The pain eventually went away. He was pain free for 4 months. Then the pain came back. He rested for another month. The pain got worse. He has tried to play basketball and 5 minutes into playing he has to stop because it hurts so bad. He says it’s sharp pain. Has anyone ever had the surgery to remove the small fragment?
Avatar f tn At 15 years old playing basketball I tore my lateral meniscus and ended up having a bucket handle tear needing a partical menisectomy. After the surgery the pain did not really go away, I did rehab, I went to physical therapy but it just got worse and worse. After running a full track and basketball season I couldn't take the pain anymore and asked them to go in again, and they found a horizontal cleabage tear that had been there for nearly a year... So I'm now 18.
Avatar n tn Been having a problem with my outside knee when i play basketball. i play about 2 or more hours at a time, everything is fine the first hr or hour and a half. After that the side of my knee begins to hurt and after a while i cant put any weight on it. My lateral movement is almost completely gone and then i can barely walk. Afterwards that whole night im in severe pain, worse after sitting for a bit and trying to stand up.

Avatar f tn m sitting and move it a certain way i cannot make them go straight without pain and then a pop. Also when I ice skate or roller blade the medial side of my left knee cap hurts and the lateral side of my right one, what does this mean if anything?

Avatar m tn recently, my knee has been feeling weaker and giving me discomfort. After doing some research I found that the closest thing to what I am experiencing is jumpers knee except I am not feeling a lot of pain right below the knee cap just mild pain and discomfort. I am sixteen and play a lot of basketball. I dont know if the pain will worsen or even if I have it. Just some input would help. Also I sprained my knee 5 months ago.
Avatar n tn I would say that the combination of tendinitis and knee pain caused me to play basketball at about 50% and with nearly excruciating pain. On occasion my knees would give out--most of the time after playing a game. After resting them for two weeks now, my knees feel slightly better. So I went to this guy and he explained to me that I had some minor tendinitis(yeah right, when playing I'm nearly crying) and couldn't explain the pain throughout my knee and just said it was overuse.
Avatar f tn That would be interesting to research. My friend who is 37 weeks had to get one of those belly support things for her sciatic pain.
Avatar n tn Yes, I use knee braces. They allow me to play basketball and other sports. But, without them I might as well take up golf. lol No surgery. No hip pain. No ankle pain due to this injury.
Avatar n tn I try and workout daily and I played a lot of outdoor basketball between the ages of 18-24. About three months ago I had knee pain (not sure exactly what caused it) and it hurt to walk up and down stairs let alone jumping. I've stayed off my legs for the most part and my knee feels better, but it cracks and crackles now when I squat. I cannot see a doctor for another month and was wondering if I should be concerned.
Avatar f tn (Question I promise is at the bottom, but there's some back story in here...) On 12/14/16, I was at work, and felt a pop in my right knee, and I buckled. This wasn't "abnormal" for me as this has happened before. I thought nothing of it and continued working my second job for the remaining several hours as a cashier walking, bending, etc.
Avatar f tn Ive been on bed rest and a few family members have stoppd by even his mom bt since he plays basketball for his school he keeps telln me he cant. Am I being selfish on my end or is there simply no support coming from him. I want him here physically I feel like I didnt make this kid alone but im suffering by myself!

Avatar m tn I tore my meniscus in my right knee two years ago playing basketball but, it has not completely healed. I cant do a full squat and i lost nine inches on my vertical jump (I'm down to 14) i also have some tendinitis in my left knee. After four hours of sports my knee swells and stiffens and is no longer mobile until i sleep it off.
Avatar m tn After being on physical therapy for two months i was able to bend my knee more however my knee is still swollen, stiff and the pain is less. Moreover, yesterday my doctor injected depo-medrol on my infected joint. And today my knee is extremely swollen and stiff, more than ever. I can barely bend my knee to 90 degree. My question, Is this swelling and stiffness normal after being injected with depo-medrol ? Or is this a side-effect ?
Avatar f tn I am 17 years old and I've been having chronic knee pain for almost 5 years now. It started in my left knee and for the past 2 years it has been in both of my knees. I am an athlete and have played basketball, volleyball, and softball in the past 5 years and am currently just playing softball. My knee click and pop and lock in place on a daily basis. I have gotten multiple x rays and MRIs and they have all come back with nothing obviously wrong.
Avatar m tn My biggest obstacle is my left knee, which was quite heavily injured 5 years ago while I was playing basketball. It was treated by a surgery followed by physical therapy. However, my left leg has been noticably weaker than my right leg ever since. One of the reasons I started weightlifting was so I could try to fix these imbalances.
Avatar m tn 2 weeks ago while playing basketball I scraped my knee on the floor. I was bleeding and grabbed a nearby towel to wipe the blood off. I did not realize but there was blood on the towel already and I rubbed it against my cut. The blood on the towel was still wet!! I later found out that the individual that towel belonged to had recently tested positive for HIV!! The blood that was on that towel from the HIV+ person was there about 2 to 3 minutes prior to me becoming in contact with it.
Avatar f tn How many months did you rehabilitate your knee for before returning to sport? Are you still playing and for how long? Do you believe you have returned to your pre injury playing level? What, if any, information or assistance were you provided with regarding the psychological transition back to sport? I myself, am still in the rehabilitation period after an ACL reconstruction whereby I am 11 months post op and hope to return playing basketball as soon as I am fit to do so.
Avatar n tn My wife injured her knee in April and has aggravated it since then to where she is in pain a lot of the time. She just got her MRI results and her doctor is referring her to an orthopedic specialist and didnt provide any guidance. The challenge is we have a trip booked to Disney next week. I don't think she will be able to handle this as it will be days with lots of walking, but as the trip is already paid for she wants to try.
