Symptoms of a Knee Contusion can include:

  • Pain immediately after injury
  • Swelling
  • Bruising that occurs within 24 hours
  • Sensitivity to touch

Knee Fractures / Dislocations

The patella (kneecap) acts as a shield for the knee joints and often absorbs the majority of the force for a direct injury.However, significant force can cause a fracture to one or both sides of the patella and cause pain and instability in the knee.

Separately, the knee can also become dislocated in a traumatic event or if the foot is planted and the knee becomes pushed past its normal range of motion.

Symptoms of a Knee Fracture or Dislocation can include:

  • Pain immediately after injury
  • Bruising that occurs within 24 hours
  • Difficulty walking or bearing weight on the knee
  • Difficulty straightening the knee

If these symptoms are present, it is important to have the knee evaluated.  Our team of Orthopedic Specialists can examine, evaluate and treat this type of injury using our on-site MRI and X-Ray.  No appointment is needed and you can walk into any of our locations and be seen quicker and more efficiently than an Emergency Room or waiting days for a doctor’s appointment.

ACL / MCL Injuries

Both the ACL and MCL provide stability and support to the knee and can be injured by excessive directional force to the knee. This injury is common among athletes who engage in sports that require quick lateral motion or acceleration and stopping.  

The most common ways these injuries can occur in athletes is:

  • Twisting the knee while the foot is planted
  • Direct force to the knee
  • Hyperextension of the knee
  • Landing while the knee is flexed
  • Quickly shifting weight from one leg to the other

However, these injuries can also be the result of a traumatic incident or slip and fall.

Symptoms of an ACL / MCL injury can include:

  • Hearing a “pop” in the knee
  • Sudden and severe pain in the knee
  • Swelling
  • Difficulty bearing weight on the knee
  • Weakness of the knee joints
Meniscus Tears

The menisci are pieces of C-shaped cartilage that are located on the inner and outer edge the knee.  The primary role of the menisci is to cushion the knee and keep the knee steady when bearing weight.  The menisci can become torn when the knee is twisted or hyperextended, such as during sports.   The menisci can also become damaged if excessive weight is applied to the knee, such as lifting a heavy object.  In other instances, the meniscus can become torn as a result of prolonged damage that weakens the cartilage and eventually results is a tear.

Symptoms of a Meniscus Tear can include:

  • Sudden and severe pain in the knee
  • Swelling
  • Difficulty bearing weight on the knee
  • Weakness of the knee
