Common Questions and Answers about Osteoarthritis knee x ray


1175033 tn?1492204828 I am 26 and have had joint degeneration in the facets of my cervical spine that has been visible on x-ray since I was 19. I just recently found out about this when I got another x-ray done, and the findings stated it was compared to an x-ray from 2002 which showed degeneration. Why didnt any one tell me? My doctors just said my x-rays were normal, but how can this be normal for someone that was 19 at the time?
Avatar f tn No methods of therapy or NSAIDS seems to help. No diagnosis. i just did this x ray. It looks like narrowing of the patellafemoral space. Is this correct? Thank you for any advice.

Avatar n tn Hi a year ago I visited my GP with left hip and upper thigh pain. He sent me for an X-Ray which showed early arthritis changes. He sent for a course of Physiotherapy which I attended for 6months. In the end I stopped going because after the initial mild improvement in pain there was no further improvement. I am taking 1500mg Glucosamine Sulphate + 1200mg Marine Chondroitin + 1000mg Omega 3 fish oil daily.
Avatar n tn You can apply ice packs and take intermittent NSAIDs to give you some relief whenever your knee is painful. You can go for a basic X-ray and follow up with an orthopedician to rule out osteoarthritis. If you had any past injury then it can be due to ligament tears. Take care!
Avatar f tn I would suggest you to go for an X-ray and confirm osteoarthritis. I would also suggest you to go for viscosupplementation and take pain killers intermittently. The only solution if you have complete cartilage loss is to go for a total knee replacement surgery and you can discuss with an expert orthopedician. Take all necessary precautions, wear proper foot wear and you can go in the car and do not put much pressure on your knees. Take care!
Avatar f tn I would suggest you to go for a knee X-ray for a proper diagnosis. Take pain killers such as ibuprofen intermittently and use ice packs if you have pain. You should consider regular cardio exercises after examination by an orthopedician and maintain a BMI less than 25. You might also have ligament injuries which can only be diagnosed by an MRI. Take care!
Avatar m tn The best treatment, presently for Osteoarthritis , is Total knee replacement.Can you upload her knee X-rays on the photo section, so that i will be able to comment on that.
1348765 tn?1276657634 I would need your height to calculate your BMI and to see if your weight corresponds. You have to go for a knee X-ray to rule out osteoarthritis. If you had any recent injuries then go for an MRI to diagnose any ligament tears or bursitis. Apply ice packs and take intermittent pain killers and follow up with an orthopedician. Treatment of knee bursitis depends on whether infection is involved.
Avatar n tn That will further help in deciding what tests may be needed in diagnosis. X ray knee joint, RA factor, CRP, ESR are the few basic investigations that may be done. Consult an orthopedician. Good luck!
Avatar m tn Hello, The various possibilities for popping, clicking joints are a cartilage tear or rotator cuff tear that is rubbing with the joint, arthrosis or degeneration of the joint and arthritis esp osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. The exact cause can be found out only after x-ray or blood tests. Please consult an orthopedician or rheumatologist for that.
Avatar f tn I have been to an Orthopedic and have had x-rays and MRI. Nothing specific was noted in the x-ray and scan. The Dr suggested orthoscopic surgery to see what he might be able to do. I have not had the surgery. He also suggested I may have osteoarthritis. The pain will come with walking, sometimes very quickly and sometimes not much at all. When the pain comes, I have a swelling on the outside of the knee joint about the size of half a golf ball.
Avatar m tn Hello! I would suggest you to go for some scans such as an X-ray to rule out osteoarthritis. You should also go for an MRI to rule out any ligament injuries. If your menisci, collaterals and cruciates are normal then you can go ahead with exercises to strengthen your quadriceps. Exercises such as running, cycling, marching will increase the strength of your Quadriceps. Follow up with an orthopedician for the best advice. Take care!
Avatar f tn Since your blood tests are normal and so is probably X-ray, you need to get a MRI of knee joint to look for ligament or meniscal tears and injuries, patella displacement etc. It may also be a pinched nerve or a muscle injury. So and EMG/NCV may help in diagnosis. Please discuss these aspects with your doctor. Also, find out if physiotherapy will help relieve the pain. Take care!
Avatar n tn Have you got any imaging study done? You should be asking for X-ray study and discuss those with an orthopaedician. You can discuss with physiotherapist for optimum intervention with physical therapy. Keep me posted. Bye.
587778 tn?1261400718 Hello! Osteoarthritis should be diagnosed properly by an X-ray. Get your X-ray commented by an expert radiologist as understanding the degree of damage to the cartilage is very important. If you have mild osteoarthritis then you have to limit further damage. You should have proper strong ligaments in your knee joint and I would suggest you to go for an MRI and confirm if the healing in your MCL was complete. Ligament damage can contribute to osteoarthritis further.
Avatar f tn If you have chronic knee pain in both of your legs then rule out osteoarthritis or other joint problems like Rheumatoid arthritis and other systemic diseases. Go for an X-ray and follow up with an orthopedician for a proper diagnosis. Take care!
Avatar n tn There is no medication for this,except that you keep yourself warm .You should consult an orthopedic surgeon and get an x-ray done to rule out osteoarthritis.
Avatar m tn Then, my knees would just ache pretty much chronically. Finally, I visited an orthopedic surgeon as suggested by my wonderful PCP. We did an X-Ray, MRI, and blood work. X ray showed some damage but nothing significant. I have never had any trauma to my knees by the way. The MRI showed that I didn't have much cartilage in my right knee. Blood work came back negative for possible diagnoses like Rheumatoid Arthritis (RF level was normal).
Avatar n tn I think you should be considering meeting another orthopedist to discuss this issue, Some imaging studies including x-ray and MRI is important. What treatment the doctor has planned? Keep me posted. Bye.
Avatar f tn Hello! As the X-ray is fine there is no problem of osteoarthritis. This can be a case of ligament tear in her knee. For this she has to get herself examined by an orthopedician and also go for an MRI. Make sure her menisci, collaterals and cruciate ligaments are working properly. Tell her to apply ice packs and to take NSAIDs intermittently and avoid weight bearing or physician exertion till proper diagnosed and treated. Take care!
Avatar m tn I would suggest you to get yourself checked by a rheumatologist and rule out rheumatoid arthritis, Rheumatic fever, septic arthritis or osteoarthritis. An X-ray on the present date will be worthwhile and you can also go for related blood tests. If your scans do not report any bony or soft tissue injury then you would need to follow up with a neurologist to rule out any spine problems or any other nerve involvement. If required your orthopedician will go for an arthroscopy for diagnosis.
Avatar n tn Is the symptoms have been more prominent in the morning, when you put your first step out to work? Take an X ray and if symptoms mimic osteoarthritis then take some pain killers like ibuprofen and glucosamine for better joint lubrication.
Avatar n tn My name is Deb. I have osteoarthritis of the knee and am awaiting my first Synvisc 1 shot, 12/12/11. The past few days I have been getting an extremely sharp pain from the knee to the hip. Different cause each time. Each time successively worse. Happens about 10 times a day. By the 7th or 8th time I'm in tears. Today it happened when I went to apply the brake in my car. The worst pain is in the hip area, not the knee. Any idea what is going on and how to stop it?
Avatar f tn Unstable knee can give rise to cartilage loss and in long run you may suffer from osteoarthritis. Discuss with an orthopedician after examination and an X-ray to start with. Take care!
623779 tn?1221729664 Hello, The various possibilities for popping,crackling joints are a cartilage tear that is rubbing with the knee joint,arthrosis or degeneration of the joint and arthritis esp osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis(but they are associated with pain).More harmless is clicking of knee joint due to relatively lax joint capsule, that allows more than a usual amount of movement.
Avatar f tn Hello! You would need to go for an X-ray on the present date. You would need to check for if you have any arthritis due to the ligament tears and past operations and accidents. You would also need to check for the amount of cartilage and knee replacement surgery is the final option if all conservative approaches fail for osteoarthritis. Take care!
Avatar n tn However, the test turned out negative for Osteoarthritis. I had an X ray done as well which did not reveal anything significant. However, the Orthopaedic did an Ultrasound and found tt it was Patella Tedonosis which I did not think was the case. In fact, another Orthopaedic (private) diagnosed me as having CMP with bilateral knee effusion. What do u make of both diagnosis? Which is more accurate? Or do u think I shld go for an MRI scan? Thanks and regards.
Avatar f tn He said all the x-rays looked fine, and that he'd never heard of this specific type of knee pain. He recommended Advil and not kneeling (uh, thanks, doc.) I'm miserable because there's no way to avoid kneeling in yoga class. And this isn't just an dull achy annoying pain, it's a really sharp sudden you-better-stop-what-you-are-doing pain.
Avatar n tn Also you have mentioned about shooting pain/clicking pain, which shows some loose body (cartilagenous, as in x-ray it's not seen) in your knee. I need few more informations from you. 1) What was the initial episode of injury to your knee. 2) can you tell me your previous MRI report as well as arthroscopic findings. I can definitely help you on in this case.
