Knee Instability

Knee instability is a debilitating problem where the individual is not confident about his/her knee and can experience giving way any time.

 

The commonest reason for the instability are limited to the ligaments around the knee. The common ligament issues that can result in instability are

 

  • ACL tear
  • PCL injury
  • LCL injury
  • MCL injury
  • MPF tear
  • Meniscal pathology
  • Lose body
  • Patellar instability

If you experience instability then a consultation with a specialist orthopaedic surgeon at AOSM will lead to correct assessment, diagnosis and further management according to the problem.

 

The doctorat AOSM  after initial investigation will chalk out the programme of management/treatment which may include supportive brace, physiotherapy and could also need a surgical intervention to correct the problem.

 

This is important to prevent wear and tear and early onset osteoarthritis which is a common finding if the knee remains unstable for prolonged period of time.
