Knee Pain

4 years back during a football game, I accidentally twisted my knee cap 90 degrees and back to its original location. Since than I have faced this problem repeatedly during any sports activity. This is in my heritage, from mother and is faced by all my siblings. One of famous Orthopedic surgeon suggests that this is due to hypermobile joints in my body and only solution is to strengthen ligaments, operating will not solve the issue. Please suggest a doctor who is specialist for such type of cases.

there are two options for you.
1. a trail of good physio to strengthen the ligaments.tell your physiotherapist to perform VMO exercises on you. avoid sports for short period.
2. if you still has same problem, then get mri of your knee and need to measure TT-TG distance. not every mri centre do that. so find someone who can do it.
based on your mri, decision of operation will be made.

You are facing this problem from the age of 23 after twisting injury, maybe some ligaments injured at that time which can only be accessed after detailed examination and then final opinion regarding your diagnosis can be made.

I have consulted one of a leading doctor in Agha Khan and he have examined my knee after Xrays and different movements. According to him all joints are correctly aligned and are in proper position, however, there were indications of hypermobility.
He instructed me to perform stiff leg-leg raises with no weights for 6 months. I have been doing bodybuilding and perform leg raises with weights. Leg raises only strengthens ligaments for short duration but is not a permanent solution.
I personally believe this can be cured by sports rehab. Expert opinions are needed.
If some one have any success story in this regard please let me know.
