Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Two years back, my knee got injured. On that day, I had swelling in my knee, gone the next day. I was not playing sports; still, my knee bone got dislocated with noise after two months. Since then, I have lost flexibility in my left leg. And during sudden movements, my knee bone is getting dislocated. I have taken an MRI. What should I do now?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for providing a brief history.

It looks like you have a ligament injury. The MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) report provided (attachment removed to protect the patient's identity) is not clear to make any comments. I will request you to help me by uploading the MRI report provided by the radiologist.

I would like to know the following:

1) How are the functions of the knee?

2) Are you able to fully bend and straighten the knee?

3) Do have any muscle wasting on the affected limb. Please compare both the thigh and leg muscles and check if there is any muscle wasting.

Till you give me a detailed picture, I will suggest you of some physical exercise.

1) Static quads. - Keep a towel roll below the knee and press it hard. Hold for 10 counts and release it. Repeat it 10 times and do it multiple times a day

2) Static hamstring - I want you to put the same towel roll below the heel and press it. Hold for 10 seconds and release the press. Repeat for 10 times and, if possible, do multiple times.

Please send me some pictures of the knee in sitting, standing and a small video of the knee movements. I think we can regain back all the functions of the knee and make you get back to the toes and game. Please give details which I asked for so that I can get a picture in detail and help you with much precision. I will wait for your response.

Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
