Injuries of Knee & Shoulder

Fellowship in Joint Replacement, Fellowship in hand surgery, MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist, Bangalore
Injuries of Knee & Shoulder

Knee is a complex structure of your body made up of bones, ligaments, tendons, articular cartilage, muscles and meniscus. Knee is a very important joint as it plays a crucial role in human movement and is also very much prone to injuries. Your shoulder like your knee is also composed of bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles. It is the most flexible joint of your body and because of its frequent movement is also vulnerable to injuries. Knee and shoulder injuries can happen due to various reasons such as while playing sports, carelessly falling down or accidents. Your knee is made up of many important structures, any of which can be injured.

Pain and swelling are the most common signs of knee injury. In addition, your knee may catch or lock up. Many knee injuries cause instability, the feeling that your knee is giving way.

The most common knee injuries are as follows-

  1. Fracture- In case of a fracture usually the patella gets affected. But sometimes the ends of femur or tibia can also get fractured.
  2. Sprains and Strains- This is the most common injury that can happen while playing sports. Sprains and strains refer to the injury of the ACL or MCL.
  3. Dislocation- Sometimes bones like femur or tibia gets displaced from their usual alignment.
  4. Ligament Injuries- Your ligaments may get injured if the position of your knee is in a bent condition during the injury. Ligament injuries are common to sportspersons and can also happen if you encounter an accident.
  5. Meniscal Tear and Tendon Tear- These are very common knee injuries which can happen while playing sports or falling down carelessly.

Treatment of Knee Injuries-

When you are first injured, the RICE method — rest, ice, gentle compression and elevation – can help speed your recovery. The type of treatment your doctor recommends will depend on several factors, such as the severity of your injury, your age, general health, and activity level.

Nonsurgical Treatment-

Many knee injuries can be treated with simple measures, such as:

  1. Immobilization: Your doctor may recommend a brace to prevent your knee from moving.
  2. Physical Therapy: Specific exercises will restore function to your knee and strengthen the leg muscles that support it.
  3. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines: Drugs like aspirin and ibuprofen reduce pain and swelling.

Surgical Treatment-

Many fractures and injuries around the knee require surgery to fully restore function to your leg. In some cases – such as ACL, PCL, Meniscal tears, surgery can be done arthroscopically using small incisions and minimally Invasive techniques.

The most common shoulder injuries are stated below-

  • Dislocation- Sometimes joints may get dislocated from their usual alignment
  • Fractures- Fractures of the collar bone, humerus and scapular fracture
  • Frozen Shoulder- It occurs due to the stiffness of the shoulder joint
  • AC Joint Injury- The ligaments may get injured in this type of an injury. It is common in sportsperson or may also happen due to falling down
  • Shoulder Impingement- In this case the muscles gets injured
  • Rotator Cuff Disease (Tendinitis and Bursitis)- In tendinitis of the shoulder, tendons become inflamed (red, sore, and swollen) from being pinched by parts around the shoulder. However, Bursitis occurs when the bursa, a small fluid-filled sac that helps protect the shoulder joint is inflamed.
  • Rotator Cuff Tear- Rotator cuff tendons can become inflamed from frequent use or aging. Sometimes they are injured from a fall on an outstretched hand.

Treatment of Shoulder Injuries-

  1. Early detection is the key to preventing serious shoulder injuries.
  2. Shoulder Exercises
  3. Anti-inflammatory medication also may be prescribed to reduce pain and swelling.
  4. Shoulder injuries can be treated by exercises and physiotherapy
  5. Shoulder arthroscopy surgery is a small key hole, Day care surgery done for various problems like Periarthritis, Recurrent Shoulder Dislocation, Rotator Cuff Tear 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an orthopedist.

Hi, not to worry if you do not have pain / your activities are unhampered. Physiotherapy may help to regain your movement. If you have >100-110 degrees, functionally you can do most of the activities. But if it is associated with pain then you need to get back to the surgeon and get advice.

Hi lybrate-user, if you have pain with stiffness of your back in the morning and improves after a hour or so, or after taking a hot bath then you have to be examined to rule out ankylosing spondylitis if the condition is present for long duration. Usually this condtion starts in 20-30 years age group and more common in males. You may require some investigations like ana, hla-b27 etc. Back stretching exercises, hot water bath, medications, physiotherapy may help. But consult ortho surgeon to rule out this condition. If its ruled out then it may be due to simple mechanical backache.

Hi, if your pain started suddenly after lifting weight or sometimes even with rigorous exercise it may be due intervertebral disc prolapse. So pain starts immediately and is severe in nature. If pain develops gradually it may be due to muscle spasm/ mechanical backache. Well you require absolute bed rest (for your spine to rest) along with analgesics, physiotherapy may help. Disc is not seen on xrays, may require mri scan to rule out. Consult and get examined.

Hi, first thing avoid overstressing your knee joints, take some rest. In your age it's due to anterior knee pain where pain is more during climbing stairs/uphill, getting up from chairs/ low seated position. You basically require knee cap application during working / walking, physiotherapy and medications.

Hi, you have coccydynia which has no particular cause or it may be secondary to injury to coccyx due to fall which starts acutely. I suggest use a ring pillow which has a hole in the centre, whenever you sit, in the office or home. So coccyx doesn't come in contact. If pain becomes unbearable or prolonged local steroid infiltration to be done if it is not secondary to trauma. Medication like analgesics, vit d3, vit b12, may be given. Consult ortho surgeon.

I fell down in the bathroom and pain in the right lower ribs. What can happen in ribs fracture?
Hi, not to worry, even if fractures are there nothing much to be done. Rib belt and analgesics will help. Pain will persist for more than 1 month, especially when you take deep breath, cough, or lift weight on that side. It will gradually decrease.

I met with an accident recently. I thought that my leg is fractured. I consulted my doctor and did my xray. It was normal. Till now pain remains as it is. I can not even sit properly. Can you suggest me actually what hap to my leg?

Fellowship in Joint Replacement, Fellowship in hand surgery, MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist, Bangalore
Hi, as you have met with an accident there was injury to your leg, luckily you don't have a fracture but there will be blunt injury to your bone and muscles. It takes time for your injury to heal. You may be having swelling. Basically you require rest and medications. Rest is the main treatment. Crepe bandage and foot end elevation will help for swelling.

I have pain in my left shoulder from past 9 days, what should I do to get instant relief?
Hi, the cause of your pain may be due to stress injury or sudden trauma to your shoulder joint. Usually the rotator cuff gets injured so lifting arm or movements at the shoulder joint is painful. The treatment is rest, physiotherapy and medicines. There is no instant relief. Pain decreases day by day.

I had an ankle ligament sprain or injury on 31.12. 2015 and got plastered for 1month. Now its removed and my doctor directed to walk. Now 40 days over. Still I can't walk properly because a small pain still existing when applying force. Slight swelling also there. I'm taking medicines tendon and Indomethacin Tab's. When will I can walk properly, go upstairs and run? What should I do next? Any more treatment is required? At what stage the surgical treatment is considered?

Fellowship in Joint Replacement, Fellowship in hand surgery, MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist, Bangalore
What the doc has done is correct. Swelling is expected and will subside. You need to differentiate between the pain which was initially present usually on the sides of ankle at the time of injury and pain due to stiffness because your ankle was immobilized for 1 month. Well I would suggest you to wear an anklet when you r walking standing or working, remove while resting. Keep your foot elevated over pillows when you r resting. Surgery I don't think is required but if pain persists for more than 3months and is unbearable then it might be looked into after getting mri scan.

If you have pain while climbing stairs, getting up from chair, walking up a incline but not much pain while walking on a flat road then you may be having patello femoral pain. You require therapy involving physio, medications and knee cap.
