Knee injury seems related to patellar tendon rupture. Xray?

Knee injury seems related to patellar tendon rupture. Xray?

Physical exam: An xray will not directly show a patellar tendon rupture, however, typically your knee cap will be further up your leg than normal. The xray will also show if a piece of bone was pulled off of the patella or tibia. The diagnosis is made clinically - you cannot raise your leg straight up while keeping your knee straight. You may also feel a defect in the tendon. ...Read more

Grade 3 sprains are complete ...Read more

Which heals faster: a tendon injury or a ligament injury?

Which heals faster: a tendon injury or a ligament injury?

Tendon: Tendons have clear indications for immediate reconstruction and care. Ligament injuries are not visualized on x-ray, and are usually not treated in cases of fracture. If you have persistent myofascial pain or instability from injury seek a physician who has learned prolotherapy techniques for rehabilitation. Also, anti-inflamatory medicines taken for injury block ligaments from "self healing". ...Read more

Surgery? Degeneration posterior horn of meniscus, tendinosis/partial thickness tearing of patellar tendon at interpolar patella, subcutaneous edema

Surgery? Degeneration posterior horn of meniscus, tendinosis/partial thickness tearing of patellar tendon at interpolar patella,  subcutaneous edema

When nonop tx fails: Surgery is not usually the first line of treatment for chronic injuries such as you described: degenerative (chronic) PHMMT, and patellar tendinosis (vs partial inferio pole tear). Nonoperative management: physical therapy, stretching program, NSAIDs, rest, ice, may all help considerably. Arthroscopy to debride a degenerative meniscal tear due to persistent mechanical symptoms may be needed later. ...Read more
