My knee won't stop giving out I'm not sure what to do

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've had a long run of knee problems to my torn ACL and my tendinitis and my disease which limits the blood flow and oxygen level to part of my bone. I have been to physical therapy for all my problems and have gotten them fixed but now my left new is starting to give way and cause pain. I'm not sure what to because I would like to continue playing my soccer. If you have any idea of how I should treat this please let me know.

    Find a sports ortho group in your area that works with your local college and/or professional teams.  X-ray to start, maybe an MRI.  Get a diagnosis.  I'd stay off the knee and certainly not play sports until you know what you're dealing with.

    Red flag! Don't ignore it. Listen to Chico. He is wise beyond his years! You need to get it checked out ASAP and don't overdo it on the leg. You may want to use crutches and not bear weight on it to prevent further damage. Keep us posted.
