I Am A Dancer And At Random Moments My Knee Bothers Me Why Is That
Sudden knee pain: Pain with random movements of the knee is going to probably be related to what you were specifically doing at the time. If you were jumping, squatting or twisting it could help with the diagnosis. Also if there are mechanical symptoms: locking , catching, popping, clicking or giving out ; will also help diagnosing your problem. I find dancers often have patella tendonitis. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My knee cracks everytime I bend down and as a dancer it hurts often but I have had it my whole life what is the cause ?
Patella / kneecap: The most common reason for knee "cracking" is softening of the cartilage of the patella (kneecap). This condition is called "chondromalacia patellae". It occurs more often is women and is thought to be related to anatomical and muscular variations in some individuals. Oftentimes specific exercises or knee braces can improve the condition. Surgery is rarely indicated. ...Read more
My knee has been hurting in the front and I am a young dancer. It started last Friday when we where doing grand pliès. The pain stops for a while then starts again. Should I get a knee brace?
Osgood Schlatter Dx: This may be Osgood-Schlatter disease, a common and benign inflammation of the front of the knee where the patellar tendon inserts into the tibia (lower leg bone). This happens from stress at the growth plate in the front of the tibia. This may lead to a bump on the front of the tibia. Usually you don't need any treatment as long as the pain doesn't limit you. You should get checked out to confirm. ...Read more
I am a dancer and I have had knee pain so i used a brace it worked but all of a sudden i started getting really bad stabbing shooting pains what is it?
See a doctor: There's something wrong because even you use the brace, but you still still experiences pain. The knee might already have some damage and brace not helping relief the symptom. You really need to see a doctor get a full exam and possible radiology study to find out the cause. ...Read more
I am a competitive dancer with patella femoral syndrome. Should i be able to continue my dancing or will that further effect the knees negatively?
Possibly: I am not one to say stop doing something you love but in your situation it may potentiate your pain and lead to occasional or intermittant flareups. Your flexibility is probably good but make sure you maintain good quad strength as well. If it worsens you may have to give it up but i think at this point the decision is yours and based on your level of discomfort. ...Read more
I'm a dancer and I have hypoextension/under extension of the knee. im tight in the muscles behind my knees, could this be the culprit?
Yes: The problem could be abnormal tightness in the hamstring muscle rather than a problem with the knee joint itself. If this is the case, a physical therapy program designed to loosen this muscle body may be the best approach. I recommend a consultation with an orthopedic specialist for evaluation and advice. ...Read more
I am a dancer. Symptoms- swelling, shadows on inside, aching when used, a lump on the outside in line with the centre of the knee. ?
Knee injury?: Because of your dancing, your knees are subject to lots of stress. The "shadows" may indicate deep bruising in the knee joint, and I'm wondering about an injury to the cartilage in the knee (called the "meniscus"). The lump you describe may be fluid buildup in the joint. I recommend seeing a doctor who can order pictures of the knee (x-ray, MRI). Meanwhile, rest, ice, and knee elevation may help! ...Read more
