What's the best way to treat knee pain from runners knee? I had arthroscopic surgery april 2012 and I've gone through pt twice to help & nothing helps
Runners knee: This diagnosis is generally given to any number of conditions that involve the knee. It may include tendinitis of either the quad or patellar tendons versus mild arthritis under the patella. At this point if you're still having problems I would want to confirm that all intra-articular pathology was addressed at the time surgery. I may also consider evaluating the alignment of your patellofemoral joint. Finally if all else fails I would recommend alternating your training regimen with bike elliptical and swim. ...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
How successful is arthroscopy? Will arthroscopy really improve my knee pain? Is it always successful? .
Often helps: Arthroscopy is a technique that allows access to a joint without requiring a larger incision (open procedure), it offers a quicker recovery from surgery in many cases and injures less normal tissue to get there. In knee arthroscopy success rate is dependent on the condition being treated. Torn meniscus surgery is very successful as long as there is no arhtritis present. Other problems may have less. ...Read more
After years of bilateral knee pain, with nothing working, clean xrays and a clean mri, I'm supposed to have bilateral arthroscopy. What can I expect?
Not much!: Cannot say in your particular case, but generally, surgery works best on those with the most severe conditions and it hasn't been shown to reliably work unless there is something broken that can be easily removed (bone fragments in the joint). Repairs of broken parts have a poor track record due to other things breaking. If NORMAL on MRI, even less likelihood of dramatic benefit. ...Read more
I have had a horizontal tear of the medial meniscs in my left knee diagnosed a couple of year ago. Since that time I have had moderate knee pain but I have avoided having an arthroscopy despte a doctor's recommendation. Am I likely to cause long term dama
Possibly: If you trim it it won't propagate and tear significantly more. If it doesn't stop you from your enjoyable activities then keep going. What generally happens is the tear will worsen with some event and hurt more and you may then have it fixed. The cartilage on the bone is less protected and will wear down more with time (degenerative, post traumatic arthritis). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Time for a check up: Without knowing the findings from your knee arthroscopy, it is difficult to comment on your ongoing symptoms. You will need to check in with your orthopaedic surgeon for making changes to your treatment plan. Also, your participation in softball may NOT be the wise choice for activities, based on what your surgeon found and did at surgery. Bottom line: go back to your surgeon as soon as possible ...Read more
