Treatment Hyperextended Knee
Hyperextended knee w/ a couple of cracks during a soccer game. Leg locked & someone pushed me. Pain in the inner & outer knee. Can't fully extend my knee?
Exercise and PT: Get a physical therapy evaluation. He muscles that support you knee would be the anterior quadriceps and hamstrings. Get a pt evaluation.
Knee swelling: It depends upon the amount of energy and injury-type. A quad pull or partial tear may stay swollen. A hematoma may stay swollen. A synovitis may wax and wane. Should be examined if not improved.
Hyperextended knee. No pain, just muscles on top of knee feel"thick". Been doing knee strengthening and feels a little better. Concern?
No: Most likely just strained or stretched the anterior cruciate ligament. Quadricep strengthening exercises, ice, and sometimes a pull-on knee brace with patellar opening or a patellar strap can be helpful.
Rest-ace wrap-brace: Most knee hyperextension injuries resolve with time and occasionally physical therapy. You should try rest, ice, compression, and avoid positions or activities that allow the knee to potentially hyperextend (no running, jumping, changing directions rapidly) until your knee no longer hurts when it is extended. If the pain persists for more than 7-10 days, you should seek medical evaluation.

Yes, calf X's knee: The calf muscles cross the back of the knee as they originate from the back of the thigh bone next to the knee capsule. When the knee hyperextends, the back of the knee often over stretches. This can cause injury to your knee that includes the posterior capsule and juxtaposed calf muscles. The calf muscles can become strained or torn causing pain and swelling in the injured calf muscle.See 1 more doctor answer
Hyperextended knee 9 months ago. Was told to ice it and it would be good but still hurts to kick, plant/ turn, & brace self on that leg. What's wrong?
Meniscus tear?: Need mri to prove it; likely if knee gives way and collapses or ratchet like feeling in knee. Get an xray adn mri, this will show it. Could be tear in acl [anterior cruciate ligament] or pcl[posterior cruciate ligament]
R.I.C.E.: Rest, icing, compression and elevation are the simple first steps to help heal your knee. If still having trouble after a few weeks of this, you will need to see an orthopedist to determine of any serious damage has been done. Try the simple things first. Add in some light strengthening and cardio if all is well on your road to recovery.
4-6 weeks: Depending on how bad the sprain of the ligaments and muscles was initially - most sprains/ strains heal within 4-6 weeks. If it was mild then usually you feel a lot better by 2 weeks. At your (our) age, you should be careful not to return to strenuous exercise too early and let the knee heal so as not to re-injure it more seriously.
May need MRI: ? Need exam possible MRI if positive findigs.
I have a hyperextended knee. I am looking into getting a knee brace to support it until I can get surgery? What would you suggest?
Ligament brace: Look for a brace with metal supports on each side of your knee. It is often called a ligament brace. It will keep your knee as stable as possible.
Hyperextended knee that I had partially torn ACL in over a year ago. It's been a week. Still painful. Is is possible I have re-torn acl?
Hyperextended knee 2 months ago. Still feels tight behind knee and sore, especially after doing activity. What could be going on?
Chronic tear: With hyperextension, you could have partially torn a tendon, muscle, or ligament around the knee. Here is a link to potential injuries. Http://www. Physioadvisor. Com. Au/7660150/knee-pain-knee-injury-diagnosis-physioadvisor. Htm I personally recommend massage therapy with physical therapy for chronic pain syndromes. If this doesn't work, you will need a more in depth evaluation.

After 6 weeks of therapy after patella femoral replacement when I stand straight the back of the knee hyperextended and catches. Any idea?
Varies: There are several possibilities, I would certainly let your surgeon know. A change in the relative tension between your extensor mechanism (which includes your patellafemoral joint) and your stabiling structures in the back of the knee can be one cause. Again, I would make your surgeon aware you are having this problem.
Depends if. ..: Depends if your knee is symptomatic (painful or feels loose!) if u have no symptoms than no treatment is necessary for a knee that "hyperextends" (recurvatum).If u have feelings of knee looseness or posterior knee discomfort than a strengthening program for your legs (quads esp.) plus a brace to keep your leg from hyperextendimg would be my first choice.
