Knee Dislocating Randomly
« on: June 04, 2007, 10:55:57 AM »
Hi Guys
I'm new to the board, and i'm hoping some of your smart people (or experienced, or both!) can help me!
Every since I was young (i'm 20 now) my knees have tended to point inwards when my toes are pointing straighforward, but lately my left knee has been randomly dislocating then snapping back into place, not very often though, last time it happened was 6 months plus ago and before that 3-4 months.
I looked on a few sites and have heard about Subluxations which from my understanding is part-dislocation, which sounds like my problem.  It tends to happen when I don't have any or much weight on it, last time it happened I had just sat down on a chair and the movement of straightening my leg caused it to pop out and as I bent my leg it snapped back in again.
I will definetely go and have a talk to the doctor, but does anyone else have an idea what it could be?
My right knee points inwards as well as my left, but I would say my left points in at a much greater angle which I would assume is half the problem
thanks in advance
Jack
