Thank you for your questions. The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions due to the limited information provided by you. Click on this link (DoctorOnCall) for a private consultation with our doctors.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your symptoms and other health problems you might be facing. For your information, locked knee occurs when when a person is unable to either bend or straighten their knee. There are two types

  • Pseudo locked knee. It occurs when severe knee pain triggers the knee muscles to spasm and contract.
  • True locked knee. It occurs when something physically prevents the knee from straightening. When a person has true locked knee, their knee joint gets stuck in one position and cannot move at all.

From your complaints, we believe that your condition may have multifactorial causes such as:

  • Meniscal tear
  • Patella dislocation
  • Knee joint inflammation

In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints. Therefore, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor. You may also click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with our doctors online. We assure you that our conversations are kept in confidentiality unless additional consultation needed with other medical parties. Thank you.
