I also had a knee lock (unable to straighten or bend my right leg much). The doctors suggested surgery. I underwent the surgery two...

I was sitting too close to the working station and I hit my knee on the metal lockers below. I went to the doctor and got some x-rays taken. It was determined that I had...

    It happened somewhere on the last week of June this year.A few days afterward a lump developed on the back of my (already problematic) left knee. It's now big enough (at least to me) that you will immediately spot it at first sight. It was originally dull and not (causing) painful, but now whenever...

PT many times and no progress. Now the knees get inflammated and filled with fluid, more and more often....

On Thursday, the sports doctor also took a look at the x-rays, said they were...

He tried injections, medications, and exercise to no avail. Then in March of 2008, he did an arthroscopy and found plica...

    Hi, I had partial front and back meniscus removal on Jan 20, 2009. After 9 days , I still can't straighten my leg or bend it much. I just started yesterday walking a little with one crutch. It is still painful after walking a little bit on it. It feels wobbly, if that makes sense, like it is loose....
