MRIs: are generally very accurate for detecting meniscal and ligament tears of the knee. You can always get a second opinion interpretation of the MRI, or, since it was 6 months ago, try to get a new MRI. Things may have changed since then. Otherwise, see an orthopedic surgeon for further evaluation. ...Read more

Stretch of ligaments: Sprains occur when ligaments (tissues holding joints together) stretch. The ACL is a ligament in the inside of the knee. The MCL is on the middle side of the knee. Disruption os ACL means it was probably/partially torn. Patella alta means that your knee cap is higher than usual. You should discuss these findings with the ordering physician so she/he can determine appropriate treatmen ...Read more

Do they grade lateral ligament sprain in knee?

Do they grade lateral ligament sprain in knee?

Not as often: While many physicians grade ligaments sprains by grade (such as the mcl), the lateral collateral ligament is much more complex. It is more often associated with PCL (posterior cruciate ligament) tears, multiligament tears (or knee dislocations). The lateral collateral represents a number of ligaments that hold the outside of the knee stable. It is more complex than can be addressed here. ...Read more

Mri comes back with grade II to III chondromalacia patella , knee joint effusion with ganglion, longitudinal partial tear.Mcland lcl strain. ?

Conservative Rx: Depends upon your primary complaint and whether there was a mechanism of injury. Chondromalacia(i.e.Cartilage wear=arthritis) is common and can cause swelling and pain. Collateral ligament strains/partial tears (mcl+lcl) should be managed well conservatively. Recommend seeing a pt for motion, strengthening, edema control. Am a fan of a stationary bike as well (nonimpact knee motion+strengthening). ...Read more

See ORS: Don't know the mechanism of your injury but you need to see a good orthopedist. If you haven't torn your ACL or meniscus you are going to be fine . LCL strains heal on their own when mild. A good examination by a board certified orthopedist will tell u what's up... PT's are great but they are not physicians... See your ORS! Best of Luck! ...Read more

Ruptured acl, torn meniscus, moderate MCL & bone contusions. Please help me!?

ACL deficiency : Without acl reconstruction you can expect instability particularly with decending stairs or turning quickly from side to side. Long term acl deficiency ultimately will end up with severe osteoarthritis in 15-20 years. In the interim, meniscus tears (cartilage"shock absorbers" in the knee) are more likely. ...Read more

Soccer player -- chondromalacia patella, MRI says: grade 3 chondral fissuring  + cyst. Will physical therapy fix it? What supplements should be taken?

Possibly see ortho: Difficult problem. Especially if your symptoms correlate with your MRI findings. If your pain is behind the knee cap then there is good correlation. Initially nonoperative intervention such as therapy, use of anti inflammatories and patellar brace may be helpful. The possibility of arthroscopic evaluation if all fails may be necessary but still a difficult problem to fix. Supplements controversial. ...Read more

It requires partial removal of the torn portion. All done by an experienced Orthopaedic knee surgeon. ...Read more
