Ways To Treat Dislocated Kneecap!

Ways To Treat Dislocated Kneecap!

Have you suffered from a dislocated kneecap and are looking for effective treatment options? A dislocated kneecap is a very common form of injury that takes around six weeks time to heal. It is generally caused by a blow or a change in direction when your leg is planted on the ground. Such injuries are common during sports and dancing. The patella or knee cap, which sits at the front of the knee, glides over a groove in your joint, on straightening or bending your leg. Dislocations make it come out of the groove, leading to the tearing of the supporting tissues.

Symptoms

  • When your kneecap gets dislocated, it is likely to look out of place, or the angle will seem odd.
  • Other symptoms include severe knee pain, inability to walk, swelling of the knee, inability to straighten the knee, and a popping sensation in the knee.

Treatment

  • A dislocated knee cap is not something very serious and it pops back in place on its own in many cases. However, it is recommended for you to get it diagnosed and treated by a health professional.
  • In case your knee cap goes back into place on its own, you should visit a minor injuries unit or MIU, or an accident and emergency department.
  • If your kneecap does not go back into place by itself, you need to call an ambulance and avoid trying to put it back in place by yourself.
  • On the way to the hospital, or while you wait for the ambulance to arrive, you should sit, keeping your leg in a position that is most comfortable for you.
  • If your kneecap does not correct itself by the time you reach a hospital, it has to be manipulated back in place by a doctor. This process is called reduction.
  • You will be given medication to ensure that you keep relaxed and free from pain during the procedure.
  • After the knee cap is put back in place, an X-ray has to be undertaken to check out if your bones are in the right position. Signs of other damages are also analysed.
  • After the procedure, you will be prescribed painkillers. Your leg will be immobile and put in a removable splint for some time.
  • For effective recovery, you should undergo physiotherapy for several weeks.

A surgery for a dislocated kneecap may only be required to be undertaken in case of a fracture or associated injuries like a ligament tear. A surgery may also be required in case you had experienced a knee cap dislocation in the past.

I had ACL reconstruction surgery one week ago my doubt is is it permissible to shake the leg and to walk and to journey.
Kindly consult your operating doctor for your querry. Shaking leg is not allowed and Walking is also not allowed. So it is better to avoid journey also as it may give rise to swelling.

Hello I am 18 years old boy. One day while going to college I was driving slowly my Scotty a another side came with a speed of 120kmph and I seeing stopped he can not control he cutted my side from sideways like I was stopped my legs touched on roads hes Scotty went crashing my left side and hence my left leg.

He gave meds which I didn't took I thought painkillers, my mom applied turmeric powder Then I went to government hospital next day where we took xray of foot (no injury to foot but was paining getting cramps on injury, injury is above foot area ending of leg above foot little bit high area there) He said normal foot x-rays and told take xray of leg where injury is wrong invest so we again went and took x-rays of injury above foot area, he saw digitally and told no crack its swelling he gave meds which I took. For 3 days as he gave and told to do dressing and weak bandage (and yes local doc also gave dressing done and tube to apply for microorganisms to kill) not I did dressing there and weak bandage done which I removed next day only because I wasn't ABLE to squat and poop so. So I took tt injection first from local doc then govt host. Doc. Meds for 3 days Now week passed and still the injury wasn't fully recovered so my father took me to private hospital doc. Ortho. Doc MD he saw he said Don tell me about accident just show me injury I really got disponted with this anyways he saw injury he said swelling due to injury he gave meds and my father said xray to take he said on take extra 700rs for that we toom another 2 x-rays of the injury leg be said minor crack not to worry Now I took meds of him for 5 days he gave from 10 days but within 4 days only whole injury got recovered I mean it was now not paining and whitish layer formed on injury like half skin white so _first black came "khipli" which I removed after 3 days it was whole dried (I attach ed picture of the injury now) Now the Main problem Days passed I noticed (see we took total 6 xray of that leg) 4 in gov hospital 2 of foot and 2 of leg where injury and 2 in private hospital after days total 6 x rays.

Hi lybrate-user, Accident is not your fault. But what you did after that may be. Sometimes X-rays cannot diagnose all injuries. You may get CT Scan and blood reports after consulting Orthopaedic Surgeon. Your injury might be more of a Soft tissue crush injury. This is not evident on X-ray. The two bumps are the places where you received injuries. A pressure bandage, rest, antibiotics may work for you after ruling out any Infection (blood investigations). Proper treatment and for proper duration is a must after proper diagnosis.

I am 25 years old female. I am having pain in my knees including the upper muscle also of the knee. I feel pain only when I am sitting only on feet and I have to get up (also while doing squats). Please suggest what should I do. The pain is getting more and more worse.

Hi lybrate-user, A 25 year old female having pain in knee, should not squat on the floor and should not sit cross-legged for at least one month. Get X-rays done and consult Orthopaedic Surgeon for further guidance.

Hi lybrate-user, Precautions to be taken: Avoid sitting cross-legged, Avoid Squatting She can do Hot fomentation and apply Gel for temporary relief. You must consult a Caring Orthopaedic Surgeon to diagnose whether she has Osteoarthritis, Spondylosis I hope X-rays of Knee Joint and LS Spine are already taken. What do they show? Sometimes MRI of Lumbar Spine and Knee Joint will help diagnose the conditions. If Medical treatment fails one can consider surgery after looking at X-rays and MRI.

keep plaster for duration prescribed by your doctor. Do not do rotation. You are on Dialysis so no strong painkillers. Continue treatment for associated disorders(Acne/Pimple at 65 years?).

HI lybrate-user, Kindly do blood reports and urine reports. Blood in stools might be because of piles or painkiller medicines. Kindly consult Orthopaedic surgeon or Rheumatologist and he will guide you for your treatment.
