Hello doctor. I want to ask, I am a soccer player after a knee injury, after I came to the clerk but it just healed, but sometimes my knee is easy to slide back, want to know what the medicine is? Thank you I need a doctor’s help
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Complaints of knee displacement after injury are very common and frequent conditions. For simplicity, see the image below.
The image above shows the structure of your knee from the front and side and as you can see, in order to function properly and stay in place, the knee is supported by various structures such as ligaments and tendons.
When a person is injured, there may be damage, tear or other abnormality in one or more parts of this arrangement that causes the knee to feel shifted, make noise or other complaints.
So that in your case, we highly recommend that you check with your orthopedic doctor for further physical examinations and also supporting examinations such as X-rays, CT scans or MRIs needed to find out whether there are really structures that are injured, damaged, torn. or broken and which structure. Because to get the right treatment, you must first know the correct diagnosis. The treatment options that you will get later will vary depending on which part is damaged and how severe it is, may require surgery or may not.
Meanwhile, we recommend that you get plenty of rest in your feet, limit physical activity, avoid massaging the area before being allowed by your orthopedist, and if you have pain, you can take over-the-counter pain medications by reading the instructions listed. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
