7m post tibia rodding and still limping +constant discomfort sometimes severe pain in my knee. Is this normal? Will things eventually get better ?
Can your tibia go out of place? What is a normal range of motion? When my knee goes straight it is -11 which i know is not good.
No your tibia cannot: Go out of place unless you have a major trauma to your knee. Normal range of motion at your knee is about -5 degrees to 150 it lessens with age and arthritis. Some people can have increased hyper extension in their knee if they are more "stretchy" or double jointed. -11 wouldn't be terribly unusual in somebody that is hyper lax. ...Read more

It is more likely that you are walking differently to avoid pain in the knee unconsciously. Phyical therapy and gait training can usually help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
