Pain r leg proximal tibia n ankle. Doc says ligament instability what is that? Oteoarthritis in both knees connected?

Pain r leg proximal tibia n ankle. Doc says ligament instability what is that? Oteoarthritis in both knees connected?

Related...yes: Ligaments connect bone to bone. Ligament instability means that the supporting structures are not holding the joint in alignment for efficient motion. The knee, leg (tibia) and ankle are all connected and if one component is weak, the others will compensate. Osteoarthritis is basically a wear and tear of the joint. If the joint is not stable, the bones rub and become irritated and inflamed. ...Read more

What does altered marrow signal in distal femur and proximal tibia accompanied with hemosiderin deposition & thickened synovium in MRI left knee mean?

Hemosiderin MRI: This may be consistent with a condition of the knee called pigmented villodular synovitis. This is caused by inflammation of the lining of the knee joint (synovium) and resulting deposit of breakdown of blood products. The cause is largely unknown. The diagnosis of pigmented villonodular synovitis is confirmed by biopsy, and the treatment of choice is synovectomy. ...Read more

Stiffness from cast: I assume you leg was immobilized during the healing of your tibia fracture. Any joint that is immobilized for any significant length of time (more than 7-10 days) would get stiff. Physical therapy working on motion after the cast or splint/brace is removed should allow knee to regain essentially full functional motion with time (6-12 weeks). ...Read more

My 10 month old had full body xray which shows a healed fracture to his proximal tibia, he showed no pain or swelling during the time frame, is this even possible to carry on standing on it?

See a peds ortho: 10 month olds should not break a tibia without a reason. It may just be a 10 mo old being a 10 mo old (crawling, cruising, twisting and falling). This is even called a "toddler fracture." there are more concerning reasons too: brittle bones, problem he was born with, etc. A pediatric orthopaedic specialist would be best able to evaluate him and answer all questions or worries. ...Read more
