St. Louis Knee Dislocation Attorneys

Knee Dislocation

Knee dislocation can occur in many different situations – most commonly, contact sports injuries, frontal motor vehicle crashes, and auto versus pedestrian accidents. In a frontal car crash, the knee hits the dashboard causing it to dislocate. Alternatively, a direct hit to the side of the leg in the vicinity of the knee can cause a dislocation.

Symptoms and Treatment of a Knee Dislocation

The most common symptoms experienced during a knee dislocation is pain and swelling. Additionally, the knee will become very instable and may appear deformed. It will be very painful and difficult to walk.

Many nerves and blood vessels are found within and around the knee joint that are susceptible to injury during a knee dislocation. With a blood vessel injury, swelling and bruising will be prominent, ankle pulses may be weak or absent, and surgery will be needed to repair and/or stop the bleeding. In the event of nerve injury, you may notice decreased sensation around and below the knee as well as weakness extending or flexing the foot.

Typical treatment includes knee relocation followed by a knee brace while the surrounding muscles and ligaments heal.

Prognosis

Individuals generally recover with no complications. However, after one knee dislocation the risk of recurrence increases dramatically; this is due to the inability of the knee joint to regain full stability after injury. Additionally, as with any injury to a joint, you have an increased risk of arthritis at a younger age.
