Hi
Your ACL is partially injured, Try out the exercises, esp.hamstring exercises, & take precautions. If by these it doesn't resolve ,get examined by an arthroscopy surgeon, & get a fresh MRI done to find out exact status now.
I am an arthroscopy surgeon in JAipur , You can contact me for the same at drsssoni@gmail.com

Hi - I am recovering well from a partial torn ACL injury which I sustained whilst playing netball 3 months ago, however in the last few weeks I have had pain in the top of my knee when pressing clutch and when on cycling machine. The pain feels like something is trapped - then it cracks painfully and feels ok again. Is this something to do with my injury??

After a fall from a bike I badly deflected my right leg.

X-rays at hospital were not thought to have shown any fractures. Can you advise please

Hi, I rolled my right ankle about 4 weeks ago. After about 2-3 weeks of rest and icing my right ankle, it felt pretty good. Good enough to start jogging again. I could walk and jog with no pain. On the forth week I tried to get back into soccer. Before the game I laced up my shoes and ankle brace then stood straight up to go for a jog. Immediately when I stood up I noticed a sharp ripping pain, across the bottom of my shin maybe near the top of the extensor tendons (if that s the right name for it, the tendon attached to the tibia), moving from the outside to the inside of my foot. I tried loosening the ankle brace but still the ripping pain continued when I stood up. I completely loosened the ankle brace and the ripping pain left and I could jog again. I decided not to play and started to examine the pain. The ripping pain only occurs when I over-extend my right leg or when I am standing/extending my leg and touch/grab my lower shin/upper ankle area. I had an X-Ray done on my lower leg/ankle but I haven t heard back from the doctor so I figured there wasn t any issues with my bones or ligaments. That leads me to believe it is a partial tear(s) in the muscle or tendon. Could you please give me a general idea if I need to have it surgically repaired or will I be able to continue resting and wait it out and eventually it will heal properly all on its own?
