Repair Meniscus Tear But Have Back And Leg Pain
Torn left knee meniscus twice, torn right achillis tendon, and symptoms of right knee meniscus tear after mri, no trauma, what could be the cause?!
Some activity: You do not have to have a specific injury to cause a meniscal tear. Sometimes the meniscus can degenerate and tear from repetitive activities such as running basketball and other pseudotraumatic sports i would work a lot on strengthening and plyometrics to help prevent further problems. ...Read more
In the knee joint there are two types of cartilage, articular cartilage and meniscal cartilage. The meniscus is a triangular shaped piece of fibro-cartilage that sits between the femur and tibia. The meniscus can tear as a result of injury or secondary degenerative changes that occur over time. Because the meniscus cartilage dies not have it's own blood supply, tears often ...Read more
Common: Surgery on one knee can cause a change in leg length changing your gait or can simply alter gait by changing knee function.The 'good' knee often takes the brunt of these changes & starts to hurt. A good physician might be able to determine the exact dysfunction (ex. short leg syndrome;nerve inflammation) & provide a heel lift, osteopathic manipulation, neuroprolotherapy or other recommendation ...Read more
Is it possible to have a meniscus tear even though the MRI comes back clean? I still experience severe pain when walking and knee buckles and pops
Yes, it is possible: 25% of lateral meniscus tears are missed on mri. It is the job of your treating orthopedic surgeon to correlate MRI findings with your symptoms. Sometimes surgery is recommended despite relatively negative MRI findings. On the other hand, your symptoms may have nothing to do with your meniscus. Popping and buckling are not specific to meniscus problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
R anterior knee pain for 1mo. Had arthroscopy in 2011; found partial tear and marked stretching of ACL. Would the ACL have healed on its own, or could it be causing me pain now?
Torn ACL not source: ACL tears cause knee instability or giving way with activities. Although U can have pain and swelling after a giving way episode, chronic pain not associated with instability should not be attributed to your ACL tear and another source should be sought. Common culprits include patellofemoral pain or perhaps meniscal tearing or cartilage defects. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

My left knee troubling me a lot they perform arthoscopy of meniscus tear nd medial plica.Plz help.. Locking still persist, strain while walk n stand?
Workup: If the surgery was fairly recent, then an infection needs to be ruled out - this would typically exhibit swelling and pain and redness and drainage of the knee. If there is no infection then aggressive physical therapy is often required to restore pain free motion and strength. If therapy fails, then a new MRI may show new or additional pathology causing the persistent symptoms. ...Read more
No, but often: The lateral (fibular) collateral ligament is uncommonly injured, but if it is injured in the setting of other ligament injuries (acl, pcl), it needs to be reconstructed to help prevent the other ligament surgeries from stretching out over time. If it is injured in isolation, it can be treated in a hinged knee brace x 6 wks and may heal on its own. Stress xrays can be used to measure if it heals. ...Read more
I injured my left shoulder and back 12 years ago. Now pain is intolerable. Can surgery fix acromian downsloaping and rim rent tear and arthritis?
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

Yes: Hip problems may cause back pain. If the treatment for your hip does not help the back pain, then further evaluation is necessary.
