Re: Torn ligmant advice please

@Mynamels - the knee joint has quite a complicated anatomy: 'meniscus' - is one of two very similar-looking shock absorbers between the two long bones. /KNEEnotes/knee-dictionary/meniscus 'ligaments' - are the guy-ropes that keep the joint stable. On the inside of the knee are the cruciate ligaments...

Re: UK Surgeons for arthrofibrosis/ Hoffa fat pad

Medics have the benefit of being able to attend world conferences and hearing and meeting the experts... But as an interested patient one probably has to be a bit of a 'sleuth'.... For example, you can locate a publication in the medical press (eg by typing into Google 'Pubmed,PMC,Hoffa's fat pad sy...

Re: left knee: patella alta+former dislocation--> incessant pain, also neuropathic

I don't think one can lump all doctors together. Firstly one must consider the general environment where the patient was seen - a State hospital will have specialist clinics (eg fracture clinic, arthritis clinic) and that clinic must be under the supervision of a specialist, but the average patient ...

Re: Patellar dislocation

@A_sure_sky - I am just checking to be sure we are discussing the same thing. You refer to dislocating your knees - did you mean a knee dislocation or a patellar dislocation?

Re: Patella Fracture non-OP Rehab

That was a really unfortunate incident. So sorry. But it is possible to have non-displaced patellar fractures and they usually heal well. You will need to avoid any loss of range of movement as the area under the patella (anterior interval) may develop adhesions - https://www.kneeguru.co.uk/KNEEnote...

Re: Pain around knee ligament sprain

Probably hiking was not a great idea as tissues really take a year or two to fully heal. Now you will just need to take things easy and 'wait and see' but try to keep the joint mobile with gentle ROM exercises and patellar mobilisations.

Re: Partial weight bearing - HELP

A lot of things in medicine fall into the 'this is the way it has always been done' category! From the actual research to the formal review of that research, to the acceptance for publication, to the actual publication, and then having that work cited by other authors may take years! The real messag...

Re: Strange Knee Injury - got MRI results update

Knee problems have this way of reminding you of old injuries! But at least this acute episode is all resolving for you... Just a quick mention - there is no 'R' in chondromalacia (it is not 'chRondromalacia') - I am just noting it as it will affect any online searches you might do. Chondro=relating ...
