Recovery Time Ligament Knee Injury
Yes: The anterior cruciate ligament is the main stabilizing ligament of the knee. With acl deficiency the knee will tend to "give-way" with quick stops and starts or changes in direction. Giving way episodes can damage the joint line further and tear meniscal tissues. Without a functioning acl sporting activities should be severely limited. Reconstruction is recommended for the athletically active. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Recently i had knee injury and didn't see a physician but on the side of patella there is a hard thing popped out what is it? Ligament? Bone? Cruciate?
See a physician: Without knowing the type/mechanism of injury and whether you have other symptoms it would be hard to speculate. There are several possibles, but with a mechanical symptom of something hard next to the patella it is time to have a physician obtain a thorough history, examine your knee and possibly obtain x-rays or other studies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends on the knee!: If you have a pre-existent knee injury, calf augmentation could cause leg swelling that may aggravate your knee. If your knee injury is severe, you should handle your knee issue before undergoing calf augmentation. If it's a chronic issue alleviated with stretching and ice, calf augmentation may not affect your knee issue. It's dependent on the severity of your injury and what your surgeon says. ...Read more
Depends on injury: One can expect full recovery after minor sprains/strains. More severe injuries (ligament ruptures, cartilage tears) may best be treated surgically to optimize recovery and in theory slow/prevent evolution of arthritis. For symptoms (pain, swelling, catching, locking) persisting for more than 4-6 wks expert opinion should be sought. ...Read more

This : This is a loaded question. There are many things that happen with age regardless of what activities you do. There are other things that happen as a result of trauma, but usually from a specific injury. While people discuss "cumulative trauma" there is no solid scientific evidence to establish that is causes arthritis. One of the questions is: what else might you have been doing if you weren't doing your job? If you were skiing, snowboarding, running, playing soccer, etc., you may have developed the same problems. The theoretical "8-hour" work day means that less than 1/3 or our time is actually spent at work (assuming 2 days off per week). Many of the things we do in our off-work time also contribute to arthritis and back pain. Have you been assessed for conditions like ankylosing spondylitis or other inflammatory arthropathies? Some of those can be improved with medications. If you've been doing your job for over 35 years, then you are also at an age when some arthritis was likely to happen anyway. Be mindful about opening a worker's compensation claim. There are some advantages, but also disadvantages. Have a frank conversation with your treating physician about the nature of your back and knee problems, any injuries you may have had, and the possible relationship to your job before deciding which way to go. Two things that can help both problems are losing weight (unless you're already very thin) and avoiding smoking. You'd be surprised how much they contribute to pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I need advice on what to talk to my Dr regarding a knee injury from sports I was 15 am 25 now and the pain I have seems worse then it should be and nothing I do or take seems to help and my Dr acts like I'm a new patient every time I set an appointment so
My pcp Dr gave me Norco 10 for knee injury. My rheumatologist gave me Flexeril 5mg BID. Can you take both of them. At the same time or space it out.
Better separate: They are not the same type of medication, one is a pain medication and one is a muscle relaxant. Because both have the capability of causing sedation, it would be safer to take one then wait to ensure no side affects and then later if you still need something to take, take the other. ...Read more
