Common symptoms : Include instability with lateral of twisting movement. Often people will say their knee just feels weak or loose or mushy. Catching and locking can be symptoms as well as significant swelling initially. Usually is a result of a non contact twisting injury to the knee. Often people will say they heard or felt a pop.
