Instability in the knee associated with buckling after a collision or twisting injury may be an indicator of a rupture of the ACL. Bracing or activity modification may be all you need, but if the symptoms are still persistent, then you may be a better candidate for an ACL reconstruction.
A fall down the stairs can lead to swelling in the knee associated with severe weakness or an inability to straighten the leg again. A rupture of the quadriceps or patellar tendons may be required to get you back to what you love.
A hard twist in the knee associated with a popping sound and pain could indicate you sustained a tear to the meniscus of the knee. Some patients may be candidates for a surgical repair or debridement. In other cases, physical therapy and bracing could be all you need.
