The Muscles That Move With Joints Used For Climbing Stairs
My knee joints painful and clipping with the result it is painful to walk up the stairs. As well as the thigh muscle is tightening?
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more
Knees hurt after climbing 3 flights of stairs to apartment. Dr said my kneecaps slide around, loose/flexible. Any exercises to help and strengthen?
Patellar Tracking: Your description sounds like patellar tracking disorder. The kneecap (patella) shifts out of place as the leg bends or straightens. The kneecap shifts too far toward the outside of the leg. Weak thigh muscles, being overweight, poor alignment of the knee joints, any injury to the knee, all can contribute. Treatment has two goals: reduce pain and strengthen muscles around the knee. Hv dedicated PT. ...Read more

Have torn ligaments in knee. Can femur actually slip off the top of the tibia? Could something fracture? Using exercise bike & walking for strength.
Torn ligaments: It would be unusual for your femur to slide off your tibia unless you tore all the ligaments around your knee like in a knee dislocation. If you just tore your acl then your knee can be unstable with subluxation of the bones. Sometimes the acl can avulse from the tibia with bone. Exercise and knee strengthening is good for a acl tear and consideration of surgery can be discussed with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Can jumping off moving equipment 5 to 15 mph on to uneven ground for 35 years up to 150 times a day cause back and knee injury? The injury's has caused total disability to lower spine and knees!
This : This is a loaded question. There are many things that happen with age regardless of what activities you do. There are other things that happen as a result of trauma, but usually from a specific injury. While people discuss "cumulative trauma" there is no solid scientific evidence to establish that is causes arthritis. One of the questions is: what else might you have been doing if you weren't doing your job? If you were skiing, snowboarding, running, playing soccer, etc., you may have developed the same problems. The theoretical "8-hour" work day means that less than 1/3 or our time is actually spent at work (assuming 2 days off per week). Many of the things we do in our off-work time also contribute to arthritis and back pain. Have you been assessed for conditions like ankylosing spondylitis or other inflammatory arthropathies? Some of those can be improved with medications. If you've been doing your job for over 35 years, then you are also at an age when some arthritis was likely to happen anyway. Be mindful about opening a worker's compensation claim. There are some advantages, but also disadvantages. Have a frank conversation with your treating physician about the nature of your back and knee problems, any injuries you may have had, and the possible relationship to your job before deciding which way to go. Two things that can help both problems are losing weight (unless you're already very thin) and avoiding smoking. You'd be surprised how much they contribute to pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
