Protection!: You know the joke "Doc, it hurts when I do this." and Doc says "Don't do that! Well, for now try not to do those things. Also use a good knee brace to protect/imobolize the knee until you can see a doctor for an exam. Rest will help whatever it is to stop further irritation damage. Knees can be unforgiving, so treat them w/ gentle care. Best! ...Read more

I am having severe pain in my left knee I am a healthy 32 year old woman and i recently re-joined the gym. About 4 days ago i was kneeling picking something up off the floor instantly i felt a soreness and uncomfortable pain in the outer part of my left k

Hello: : Hello: is the pain still ongoing? And did you notice any swelling, clicking or catching since? Knee pain associated with sudden movement, especially while kneeling and squatting, can cause internal problems as severe as meniscal tears. Fortunately, those are relatively rare, and there are many other far more benign possibilities like iliotibial band symptoms. There is no easy way to tell exactly what caused your knee pain, but if you feel the incident has caused a lingering, consistent change for the worse in your knee, such as fluid buildup, limited movement range, persistent pain in the knee where before the incident there was none, and popping or catching sensations, especially if those signs are ongoing and it's been a couple of weeks or more from your initial injury, then it is important to see a local orthopedic specialist who will be able to examine your knee, listen to your history, and help diagnose and treat your knee. An MRI may be necessary if the initial xrays are not revealing significant injuries or existing arthritis or other bony problems. However, your orthopedist may be able to make many diagnoses without an MRI and elect to recommend conservative treatment first then consider MRI if you are not improving. I hope this has been helpful. Even though you are in brooklyn and i'm in seattle, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns! ...Read more

Im 22 but have severe pain in only my left knee, standing, sitting, or bending. Knee clicks when I rotate it, no swelling.Any physical therapy ideas?

Knee pain: The fact that you have no swelling is an excellent sign that therapy should improve your clinical course. That said, i would have an MRI to ensure that you have no articular cartilage disorder (e.g. Ocd lesion) and/or meniscal tear. You are most probably experiencing a patellofemoral disorder and possibly a medial plica band syndrome. ...Read more

I'm : I'm sorry to hear that you are having such issues with your knee. Has your doctor looked into other causes? Some lower back problems can cause referred symptoms in the knee. The sensitivity to touch would worry me about a "pinched nerve".. I also routinely see patients who complain about knee pain who actually have a hip problem.. You didn't mention any injury to your knee, however some people develop a condition called rsd (reflex sympathetic dystrophy) after apparent minor injuries which result in significant pain and senstivity of the sking. These are just a few things i would discuss with your doctor. ...Read more
