Examination by an: Orthopaedist is key. We can often tell by exam only. An MRI can be used to confirm the diagnosis. People typically complain of instability in the knee or "giving out" especially with side-to-side movements or twisting of the knee. The knee is typically swollen and can be stiff. Pain can vary from severe to minimal.
