Pain or instability: Knees can "go out" for a myriad of reasons. In general, two types of giving out can occur: due to pain and aberrant muscle firing causing "buckling", or ligamentous injury causing mechanical giving way due to the lack of ligamentous constraint. A thorough history and examination by your orthopaedic surgeon will uncover the answer and allow for appropriate treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unstable knee: Degeneration in the knee, excessive fluid (effusion), injury or laxity to the ligament/tendons, weakness of muscles, excessive pain, even lumbar disc disease can cause knee instability and thus sensation or actual "giving-out" wrapping of the knee reduces the "loose-feeling" thus helps you feel more confident in your knee as you walk.
