Knee ligament laxity if you have problem in your legs then it might be due to ligament laxity where your legs would become very weak due to the old ligament injury and that should be treated immediately. Wear knee cap so that you will feel firm while walking or climbing stairs. This is a general strain and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try! one time you can do hot water fermentation that would help to reduce the muscle strain. You have to do knee strengthening exercises, ie. Knee rehabilitation exercises which will strengthen your knee. Exercises will give you permanent cure than the surgery. Physiotherapy management :you can take ultrasonic therapy in one of the nearby physiotherapy clinics which would help to heal the damaged cartilages along with shortwave diathermy which would help to improve the blood circulation.

Respected Lybrate user. Reasons for your knee ligament sprains are. So many. I think your doctor was explained this. However it's happened" poor adapted positions. Sports injuries. Daily activities (those are related to knee joints). Please take some rest along with precautions (your doctor said). Must be remember. Don't forget" knee cap" which your doctor prescribed. During this crucial period please consult physical therapist at your area at once. They may suggest some precautions and ex' s.or if already told your doctor. Please follow and don't forget knee check-ups / follow-ups. Don't worry it is curable.

Check whether there is still redness in the skin at times the blood clot remains in the area where the injury had happened many weeks / months ago. This leads to ischaemic changes and the oxygen in the area is totally diminished which is the reason when the thigh is pinched it leads to vascular insufficiency which makes your brother to have headache.

Mrileft knee. Joint study protocol: sagittal: pd, gre// coronal: stir, tiw// axial :t2 tse findings there is mild effusion in knee joint extending into retro-patellar and lateral paracondylar recesses. Altered linear intrasubstance signal intensity is seen in posterior horn of medial meniscus appearing hyperintense on t2wand pd fs images with no intra-articular communication suggestive of grade-2 medical injury. Rests of medial and lateral meniscus appear normal. No evidence of tear. Anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments are normal in course and reveal normal parenchymal signal intensity. Quadriceps femoris tendon and patellar ligament are normal with normal signal intensity. Visualized bones reveal normal intra-medullary signal intensity and normal cortical margins. A small bony island is seen in posterior aspect of medial femoral condyle and distal femoral metaphysis. Patella is normal in location. Medial and lateral collateral ligaments are normal with no evidence of tear. Peri-articular and para-articular muscles reveal normal parenchymal signal intensity and well-preserved intermuscular fat planes. Impression: Mr. left knee finding reveals mild joint effusion with grade-2 medical injury involving posterior horn of medial meniscus as described above.

Hi sir. If you are not able to bend your knee, swelling and pain, please take an xray nearby. If you doesn't have much pain, pls give some rest to knee for 2-3 days. Bcos bruising will also induces pain to rest the part.

I tore my posterior horn of medial meniscus few days ago (grade 3). My doctor recommended physiotherapy after clinical inspection. My understanding for doing physiotherapy is making the muscles around the hips, quads, hamstring etc stronger so that there wouldn't be much stress to the torn meniscus. But once we stop doing physiotherapy, won't the muscles become weaker again? As we are not training them and this in turn would cause the pain to come back. Can someone let me know how physiotherapy performs in the long run?

Hi lybrate-user, firstly, physiotherapy treatment is not just restricted with muscle strengthening, it also corrects the biomechanical changes occurred due to the meniscal tare. Secondly, its takes eight weeks to develop muscular strength but once the muscle memory is developed, it will take 5-6 months for it be forgotten. Hence, maintenance exercises done ocassionally, can help you to keep up with the strength levels.
