Dislocated Knees: Rare But Serious

Dislocated Knees: Rare But Serious

Your knee is a complex joint that serves as the meeting point of your femur (thigh bone), patella (kneecap), and tibia (shin bone).

Although rare, a dislocated knee is a serious injury. It can damage several important nerves, ligaments, and blood vessels, putting your joint and leg at risk for a more complicated condition. A dislocated knee is often caused by trauma to your leg from sports injuries, falls, and car accidents and can worsen over time if not treated by licensed healthcare practitioners specializing in physical therapy services.

Please take note of these common symptoms:

  • Knee swelling and severe pain
  • Visible knee deformity
  • Hearing a popping sound at the time of injury
  • Wobbling, instability of knee joint
  • Limited knee range of movement
