Kneecap Bones Seem To Shift?
… I want to ask, why is my left knee bone that protrudes a little shifted? the one that slides like the bone in the wrist… that protruding one… please answer
Bone has a distinctive shape and is different in each part. The knee joint itself consists of several bones that attach to the tendons and ligaments so that it becomes a single unit of the knee joint. In the knee joint there is also a distinctive bone, namely the patella or kneecap known as the kneecap.
The bones that form it, namely the femur (thigh bone) and the fibula and tibia (calf bone or shinbone) have palpable protrusions. If you experience an impact or trauma, the bones can experience disruption or even discontinuity or known as fractures, this can make the bones shift or cause other symptoms such as pain, swelling, impaired function, and also difficulty moving. So when you feel there is a difference or accompanied by previous trauma, it is better to have an examination by a doctor to assess whether there is a disturbance that occurs in the knee joint and the organs that form it.
The doctor will later conduct an interview about the symptoms that arise, a physical examination, and also supporting examinations such as x-rays or also an MRI scan to assess whether there is a problem in your knee joint. If it interferes with your activities, rest the painful joints first so they don't cause other disturbances.
