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??

2years after tkr, have burning, stiffness after standing in one place for a few minutes, pressure behind knee, actually pressure discomfort in back of leg from thigh to calf. The stiffness after standing for just a short time is what really bothers me. Went through usual therapy and achieved excellent flexibility. Sorry, don t know exact number. Still ride my recumbent bike, walk every day. Within 10 minutes of walking, knee starts to burn. Also am not really steady on my feet anymore because of the difference of leg length. I have neuropathy, but not severe, and wonder if that might cause some of the burning.
