Knee cap dislocation
I am a 20 yr old female.
I play vball at the U of I Springfield.
I have suffered approximately 8 knee cap dislocations on my left knee and about 4 on my right knee.
I suffer constantly with knee pain, my knees pop all the time, and swell. I have had these problems since the 7th grade. Everytime these dislocations happen I am told to rest, compress, ice, and elevate and then continue my therapy. And on some occassions I just get x-rays and told it was a freak accident. Obviously it isn’t since I have had so many. No one seems to listen.
My knee caps are not in groove and I have developed bone spurs.
I need some advice. No one will refer me for an MRI because of the cost of them. Can’t I be tearing up my knee? Can you help me and give me some advice.
