Get it checked: Severe knee pain with motion in a 39 yo is often a sign of a structural problem within the knee. Often a torn and displaced meniscus fragment will cause pain with simple range of motion. An orthopedist will likely order XRs and an MRI to definitively diagnose the problem. Seek treatment soon as a displaced (bucketed) meniscus should be treated urgently. ...Read more

Uncertain see peds: You need to see your pediatrician to see if your child needs a rheumatology or orthopedic evaluation. Since she is otherwise active and has no other limitations I suspect it is physiologic and no inflammatory joint disease. Even though the pain is in the knee sometimes hip problems can radiate to the knee. ...Read more

Several things: These symptoms can only be adequately diagnosed only after a thorough evaluation by your doctor. This may include labs and other satudies. Once all of the information is in, your doctor can let you know what's going on, and what to do to help you. ...Read more

Safe.: With a plica excision you should be safe to play rugby, and you are not predisposed to other injury just by excision of the plica. ...Read more

What should I do to help/fix knee pain about a year after injury?

You probably can't: You did not mention the nature of the injury but chronic knee pain that persists a year after the injury needs to be reevaluated. See an orthopedist. ...Read more

Check out your feet: The foundation for good Biomechanics is the foot. See a Podiatrist for a good pair of functional orthotics if you are pronating. Don't trust the shoe salesman or the trainer or the guys in the gym for a problem that might be with you all of your life. ...Read more

Knee pain and possible injury from twisting in tennis. Should I stretch first?

Dr. Vic Kalman
Board Certified, Orthopedic Surgery

261K people helped

Depends: If you just twisted your knee during tennis and cannot continue then i would ice the knee, wrap it and elevate it. If the pain passes quickly and you can run, plant and pivot to hit balls then yes by all means stretch a little first. Do not continue if there is any lingering pain because you might cause further injury. Ice and elevate for any swelling, should resolve my morning. See dr if persist. ...Read more

? Yes: if u hyperextended you knee before and had symptoms ( pain , seelling, 'looseness feeling') than the chances are definitely higher of it happening again; esp. if u are 'loose jointed' to begin with and then tore your ACL... See an experienced orthopedic surgeon for examination and diagnosis . Best of Luck! ...Read more
