Hello Ardian Nana, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Dislocation occurs when the bone shifts and exits from its normal position. Dislocation can occur due to sports, or due to accidents and collisions. Dislocations can occur at the same time as other injuries and are usually difficult to distinguish from fractures, or injuries to other organs.
Some causes that can occur in your knee:
Injury or tear dislocation of the meniscus Ligament injury in the knee Fractures or fractures Previously have you consulted your doctor about your complaints, you should consult an orthopedic specialist because to determine the diagnosis or the exact cause of your complaint the doctor needs further information, physical examination direct, radiological examination such as x-rays, CT Scan or MRI.
If a dislocation does occur, the doctor will usually perform an action in the form of a reduction that is to return the position of the bone back to its original place. But if the injury is severe enough then the doctor may have to take further measures such as surgery. After returning the knee position or surgery, then your doctor can recommend you to do rehabilitation or do physiotherapy to restore the function or strength of the muscles around the knee. But everything depends on the degree of severity or injury that occurs.
Some things you can do between:
Resting the injured knee part Cold compress when the first 1-2 days of injury after that can do hot compresses to relax tight muscles and pain. Consuming over-the-counter pain relievers such as paracetamol Hopefully this information can be useful for you.
