How Do They Fix A Slight Superior Displaced Medial Menisucs I Have Alot Of Pain And Clicking In The Knee
How do they fix a slight superior displaced medial menisucs? I have a lot of pain and clicking in the knee.
Depends on the tear: Depending on the size, and location of the tear, the meniscus can be repaired or excised. If you are having mechanical symptoms like (locking, clicking, or catching and swelling), you should have knee arthroscopy. You do not want to continue to experience these symptoms. The meniscus tear can get larger, or became unrepairable so that most if not all of the meniscus needs to be removed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What does a displacement of the meniscus root mean? Why does my knee feel unstable when I stand? I do have a ACL sprain and effusion in the knee. Help
I am having a lot of medial knee pain worse at night i also having a displacement of the meniscus i don't know how to find relief? Clicking and lock?
Get it evaluated: Unfortunately what you are suffering from are called mechanical symptoms associated with the meniscus flap getting caught in the joint. There is poor blood supply to the meniscus therefore there is a low probability that it will heal on its own. Therefore i suggest an evaluation with an orthopedist to discuss possible options to treat the meniscus tear. ...Read more
I do not have knee arthritis but a displaced meniscus root? Which I am thinking is a tear because I have clicking and locking of the knee joint? Help
Surgery: By a root i assume u mean a horn or the ant/post attachment of the meniscus. This is a mechanical abnormality in ur knee & it will require surgery, repair or excision. With each click and locking episode u r damaging the articular surface which will lead @ arthritis if not corrected. Even if it fine 4 a while the damage from the last episode remains so get it taken care of by an orthopedic surgeon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Am I doing more damage when my knee locks and gets stuck? I also have a lot of pain in the medial part of the knee. Unable to straighten the knee help
LOCKED KNEE: There are many possibilities, but the most likely and most common is a menus cal injury. Injuries are typically due to either trauma or normal wear-and-tear. The injured meniscus often interferes with the joint's ability to fully extend. You should follow up with an orthopedic surgeon. Connect with me via my inbox & I would be happy to help coordinate that for you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Reasons for having just one knee have pain just inferior to my knee cap and having severe pain in the patella tendon area when I squat. Treatment? 19
Maybe: It sounds like you may have patellar tendinitis one on side. This may reflect a tightness or weakness in your hips or hamstrings or other subtle anatomic variant that makes you predisposed. Treatment is a period of rest, appropriate stretching, ice, anti-inflammatories, and eccentric strengthening directed by a trainer or therapis. Other modalities, such as ultrasound, may help. See a doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does a torn ACL always have swelling? Can a torn ACL hurt to twist you knee right to left when standing? I have a lot of instability in the knee.
Usually yes, and yes: Initially, a torn acl usually results in a knee effusion (swelling), but after a few days the swelling can go away. Pain/shifting with twisting activities (even while standing) are one symptom of a torn acl. Torn meniscus tissue or cartilage which can occur along with an acl tear can also cause similar symptoms or the sensation of instability. It does sound like it's time to get your knee checked. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Still having lot of pain in my right ankle MRI results come back with no fractures but I didn't see any ligaments or tendons shown on the images. take ibuprofen and using ankle support when walking?
MRI: Are you sure it was an MRI? X-Rays are used to rule out fractures and don't show soft tissue. CT scan are similar machines to MRI, and also don't show ligaments it tendons very well. MRI's are big machines that take an hour to scan a body part. They have great resolution for tendon and ligament injuries. I would also recommend beginning PT for stretching and strengthening work outs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is mucoid degeneration of the medial meniscus does this suggest a tear? I am 48 and have extreme pain in the knee with catching and pop
Possibly : Your symptoms sound like a tear. The meniscus usually has a very solid black signal throughout when it is healthy. When you can see an abnormal signal and it goes to the surface, it is usually considered a tear. When there is signal change within the meniscus but it does not connect with the surface, it is often described as degeneration. You probably have a subtle tear, may need a scope. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have had a MRI of the knee . It showed a displacement of the medial meniscus? Still having painful clicking and catching throbbing all the time?
My orthopaedic surgeon said he can't get to the posterior horn of my medial meniscus on arthroscope - is this true?
Is there any other option? Can i still jog with this tear?
No: If your surgeon told you he can't reach the posterior horn of the medial meniscus i would promptly seek another orthopedic surgeon. This can be tricky but is easily accessible thru standard and possibly accessory medial portals. A posterior horn tear can be bad and can accelerate arthritic change in the knee. If can live with pain live with it. If hurts seek attention but not that guy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can medial colateral ligament level 2 tear hurt for 8 months and still get better? I feel small pain right on the inside of the knee. It gets worse.
Should be healed: MCL sprains of the knee( moderate- grade 2)in most all cases should be 'healed' by 6-8 weeks... so this continuing pain is clearly abnormal. Assuming you had an MRI scan to confirm your diagnosis. If not, one may be indicated @ this point... sometimes other diagnoses can be 'missed' even on MRI. I would see an experienced knee specialist( ORS ) for exam..a subtle med. meniscus tear may be dx. GL! ...Read more

Ankle Ligament tear: Sorry to hear about that. The anterior talo-fibular ligament runs from the outside to the front of the ankle. Although it's only one ligament, the swelling from the joint capsule can be enough to cause a lot of pain on both sides. Hope that answers your question. ...Read more
