knee popped out of place?

I think my knee or something around that area isn't in place right. Not sure how to describe it, but thats basically what it feels like...something just isn't in the right place and it hurts when I bend my knee and feels like something needs to pop you know?
Anything I can do?

If you dislocated your knee you would be in so much pain there is no way you would be able to write a thread on Authentic Forum. I would still call a doctor asap.

Well I slept and its better now. I definately knew I didn't dislocate my knee, I wasn't in that much pain!
It was just more uncomfortable and felt like maybe a joint was out of place? Not really sure but its better now!

^Agreed
If you can walk, then your knee is most likely in place. It could have "subluxed" which is when it partially dislocates. I blew my knee out in HS doing gymnastics and it eventually had to be repaired through 3 knee surgeries.

Yes I knew my knee was not dislocated...had I been thriving in pain, duh I would have gone to the doctor, I'm not stupid.
I just didn't know how else to describe it because it felt like something was out of place somewhere in that area.

Did you just finish doing something physical and sit down for a long period of time? And do you hear or feel a grinding or sratching feeling when you rotate your knee?

Doi you notice any swelling?

Either way stop by a doctor asap

Thank you for fixing my mistake...it has been a long week @ work, and no I'm not going to the doctor because whatever was wrong was somehow righted in my sleep. Everything feels normal and nothing hurts or is uncomfortable.

I think I know exactly what you are experiencing...

I partially tore my right ACL in high school and every so often the same thing happens to me that happened to you. It's usually if I'm sitting on the ground on top of my feet and I roll to one side to then stand up. It partially dislocates something. There may be a little bit of pain but it's more of a feeling that something slipped out of place. It usually eases itself back to normal in about a day or so.

I think it has something to do with the strength around the knee and the partially torn acl (it's just a sloppy connection and won't hold everything together as tight as a normal one). It is pretty common for people to slightly tear ligaments. You may have done this a while back and not have even known. Then the joint is a little weaker. Sometimes the ligament grows back on it's own and it is 100% again.

Unless it starts happening a lot, I wouldn't bother going to the doctor. There's nothing that they can do. Unless a ligament is fully torn, they won't operate.

I ended up completely tearing my left acl two years ago and got that surgically repaired. I'm just waiting for the right to completely tear in the next ten years so I can get that fixed.

If this is the case, start taking glucosamine immidiatly. You will notice a massive difference within a couple of months. Its repairs and rebuilds joints and tendons, and does it amazingly for how cheap it is. Look for it with glucosamione only, not with chondroiton ect.

^It will help. I used it long after my knee injury. Then I tore a ligament in my shoulder (gymnastics again), but I am too scared to get it fixed. The glucosamine helped so much that I hardly ever feel my shoulder pain

Where are you getting this information from to say look for glucosamine only, not with chondroitin?

With regards to glucosamine, although it is recommended for osteoarthritis, etc... i don't think you can say anyone will notice massive differences within months. i have heard from people who were able to see significant improvement in animal models of osteoarthritis, while on glucosamine, but the human clinical trials are mostly contradictory, with some studies demonstrating an improvement while on glucosamine, while others showing no significant change.

ligament tears don't regenerate themselves, the tear is filled with scar tissue, which is less elastic and less functional. so it won't be 100%.

Sure I can, it happened to me. Likewise with 2 of my training parteners and 3 others that I reccamended it to on another site.( it may not happen at exactly the same time for everyone, but a few months seems to be a good gauge) Its my personal opinion because everyone I have told to use it have claimed that it worked like a charm, encluding myself. And during this time they didnt change their diets, excersises, or supplements, so it wasnt the use of anything else that led to the change

I have found chondroiton to have more sketchy studies then glucosamine, so I prefer to take solely glucosamine
I have had amazing results, so has anyone else that has ever used it that I have spoken too. And the difference isnt noticed until a few months have passed. Its cheap and I have never heard of anyone I reccamended it to having no benifits from it. I do agree however that it is the most effective in older people who already have problems regenersting tissue.

I had shoulders that couldnt lift past the midway point, they avent bothered me in years since taking glucosamine. It was phenominal for me

What is accepted in those who think it works is that it doesn't work for every case, and the improvements are rarely drastic, but moderate. You are touting it as a miracle drug with drastic effects because it worked for five people, where there was no way to gauge whether they would have noticed improvements on a sugar pill (bc they wanted to notice improvements), and where you cant be certain that for the new injuries, time simply didn't heal the joint. I'm just saying that's not a right thing to say to people who are unaware, because the large-scale, case-controlled studies don't confirm this sort of effectiveness. I don't think it's wrong to recommend glucosamine, but it's better to tout it's effects based on the large scale studies, and state your experiences with it explicitly as personal opinion.

The same goes for not saying "don't take chondroitin". Yes, the studies for it are not 100% convincing, which puts it a close second to glucosamine in that category, when looking at the whole of the literature. But it is recommended to take chondroitin for osteoarthritis as well as glucosamine (it's only for osteoarthritis where official recommendations have been made so far, as far as I know).

This section is tricky, because what it boils down to is that people are offering medical advice. Basically I'm saying to be careful to differentiate what has come from your own personal experience and what is the generally accepted medical view. The safest thing to do is provide a rationale for any claim you make, so for example if you're saying "don't take chondroitin", you should follow that by saying it is your belief that developed from doing your own research on the net. Otherwise people will think that the general consensus of the medical community is that it is not recommended, which in this case was false, it is recommended along with glucosamine.

I completely understand, but I think its obvious that this is based on my personal opinion when I say " it worked for me and others". If there was some confusion, I will be sure to state in my opinion far more clearly.

And besides, we arent talking about osteoperosis in this case, so the studies based on that arent really relevant here. But I do get your point

Im not saying it s a mircacle drug that will cure everyone, I stated everyone I know that has used it ( encluding myself) has had great results, not mediocure ones. And there is a huge difference between personal trainers and competitive bodybuilders saying they felt a difference, compared to some guy who knows nothing about cause and effect. Which is why I was happy to reccamend glucosamine, as the guys I know who have used it compete or are personal trainers, and they all raved about it
