What causes lancing pain in the knee medial? It hurts so much it is almost unable could it be a tear or a displacement of the meniscus? Please help

Either: It could be either of the 2 and some more possibilities, like early arthritis, loose body, or referred pain from a back/hip lesion. I think you need to go to your orthopod and get it investigated/treated. In the meantime, take some nsaids, rest your knee and use a cane or crutches if you have them and know how to use them, to minimize taking through that side. Good luck. ...Read more

Ortho question what causes swelling in the knee? Hurts to twist it from right to left is this a meniscus tear? What is a meniscus cyst? Please explain

Meniscal tears: Pain and swelling are very common symptoms of a meniscal tear. If it has been going on for more than a month i would see an orthopedic surgeon to get x-rays and probably an mri. Meniscal tears typically don't heal and require arthroscopic surgery to fix them. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of a meniscus tear? What does it mean when a MRI says a displacement at the meniscus root? Does that cause a knee to lock?

What are the symptoms of a meniscus tear? What does it mean when a MRI says a displacement at the meniscus root? Does that cause a knee to lock?

Giving way: Meniscal tears usually cause mechanical instability. The primary symptom is buckling or giving out. A displaced meniscus can cause the knee to lock. The meniscal root is where it attaches either in the front or back of the knee. Depending on your age it can be repaired or removed but is almost always a surgical treatment. See a good orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more

Does twisting your knee to the left or right with pain indicate a medial meniscus tear? If i move my knee that way the pain is unbearable

Does twisting your knee to the left or right with pain indicate a medial meniscus tear? If i move my knee that way the pain is unbearable

Sounds like tear: What you are describing in orthopedics is called the apley's test and is characteristic of a meniscus tear. Similar pain can occur if you have some arthritis in this compartment of the joint. Agree that you should see an orthopedic surgeon particularly if catching, swelling and/or giving way is occurring. They will consider an MRI to better define the pathology. ...Read more

The knee's shock: Absorber. There is both a medial and lateral meniscus. It is made up of a different type of cartilage then what is on the end of your femur and tibia and helps protect it from damage. A meniscal tear can be painful and certain activities like bending, climbing stairs, twisting etc are some activities that can increase pain. The pain is usually at the level of the joint. ...Read more

I was wonderful how does one get an meniscus tear in the knee also my knee is out of place leaning towards the left what causes this to happen?

Turning, twisting...: turning, twisting , squatting maneuvers are common mechanisms of injury for meniscus tears.As we age the meniscus can become more ' brittle' as it loses its water content and ' degenerative' tears are quite common w/ getting in/ out of a a car and other simple mechanisms.Sounds like you have a valgus( 'knock- kneed')knee and is a normal 'variant', esp.in women.Best of Luck! ...Read more

What happens if the patella is a sesamoid then why does it articulate with the femur?

What happens if the patella is a sesamoid then why does it articulate with the femur?

That's normal: Sesamoid bones are usually small bones that are incorporated into a tendon on ligament near a joint. They increase the mechanical advantage of the muscle making it easier to move the affected joint. The patella is the largest sesamoid bone which pushes against the femur. Everyone also have sesamoid bones under your big toe and your thumb. They can occur at other joints as well. ...Read more

Pain in the knee joint. Where tibia connects. Hurts to stand on it the bend it on one leg also can't run, hurts. What is it. Should i get it checkedout?

Patellar tendon: Symptoms are suspected with this history. Constant jumping, landing, and changing direction can cause various problems with the patellar tendon. So those who regularly play sports that involve a lot of repetitive jumping — like track and field (particularly high-jumping), basketball, volleyball, gymnastics, running, and soccer — can put a lot of strain on their knees. See a physical medicine doc. ...Read more

Is it something serious when you have a slight superior medial mensicus displacement? What usually is the treament for that? Does it require surgery?

Is it something serious when you have a slight superior medial mensicus displacement? What usually is the treament for that? Does it require surgery?

Not necessarily: Surgery is always an option, but just depends on your symptoms. If you don't have significant swelling or pain, then conservative management is appropriate. If you have pain that impacts your daily activities, having the meniscus "fixed" (through an arthroscopy) is an option. "displacement" of a meniscus likely means that if you re-tweak your knee, you'll complete the tear. Good luck! ...Read more

What ligament goes across the talus bone? How does it heal once injured? Is an injury to that ligament a serious one whe it causes pain to walk/stand?

Many: There are several ligaments that attach to the talus-anterior talofibular and posterior talofibular laterally (outside of ankle). Calcaneofibular ligament spans the talus. Medially the deltoid ligament. Most ankle ligaments heal when torn (sprain). This can take several months.
