“..Dislocation of the knee is uncommon, representing less than 0.2% of all orthopaedic injuries.3–5 It occurs mainly as a result of high-energy trauma, usually in young men. Motor-vehicle accidents account for over half of the cases and sports injuries for slightly less than one-third. Dislocation is associated with multiple trauma in between 14% and 44% of cases and is bilateral in 5% of patients6–10 (Table I⇓)…”

Patella dislocation stoneclinic.com
If the patella has been shifted completely outside of its groove, the first step will be returning it to its normal position. This process is called reduction and can sometimes happen spontaneously. If not, a doctor can push the patella back in place.
For patellar dislocations resulting in a damaged ligament, we will most often reconstruct the damaged ligament (patellofemoral ligament) surgically using a donor tendon. If there is damage to the articular cartilage in the joint, we can treat it arthroscopically. Failure to address these issues may lead to a chronically unstable patella and potentially an arthritic knee.
Rehabilitation following reconstruction of the patellofemoral ligament focuses on getting the patient fitter, faster, stronger with a primary emphasis on promoting proper tracking of the patella. During the first month, emphasis is on healing of the repaired ligament while maintaining range of motion as allowed by the patient’s surgeon on an individual basis. As patients progress through the program, specific lower extremity strength and stabilization activities are introduced. In the final months of the rehab program, focus transitions to sports-specific training.
Some people are chronically loose in the knee cap, often due to bony shapes such as a flat anterior femur (trochlea) in combination with tissue laxity (stretchy tissues). In those cases, careful physical therapy and strengthening exercises focused on the muscles that guide the patella are prescribed first before any surgical procedure is undertaken…”
Home Remedies for Knee Pain top10homeremedies.com
“..Here are the top 10 home remedies for knee pain.
1. Cold Compress
Applying cold compresses to the painful knee is one of the best and easiest ways to reduce pain and swelling. The cold will constrict the blood vessels, reducing blood flow to the affected area and thus reducing swelling. It will also give you relief from the pain.
Wrap a handful of ice cubes in a thin towel.
Apply the compress to the affected knee area for 10 to 20 minutes.
Do this two or three times daily until your pain is gone.
A bag of frozen peas also works well as a cold compress. You can opt for alternating hot and cold compresses as well for chronic pains.
2. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is also helpful in reducing knee pain. Due to its alkalizing effect, apple cider vinegar helps dissolve mineral build-ups and harmful toxins within the knee joint. It also helps restore joint lubricants to help reduce pain and promote mobility.
Mix two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in two cups of filtered water. Sip this mixture throughout the day. Drink this tonic daily until you recover completely.
You can also add two cups of apple cider vinegar to a bath tub of hot water. Soak the affected knee in the water for 30 minutes. Do this once daily for a few days.
Also, you can mix together one tablespoon each of apple cider vinegar and olive oil. Use it to massage the affected knee once or twice daily until the pain is gone.
3. Cayenne Pepper
Cayenne pepper contains capsaicin that works like a pain reliever. Capsaicin’s natural analgesic or pain-relieving properties produce a warm sensation and reduce pain in the affected knee.
Prepare a mixture by adding two tablespoons of cayenne pepper powder in one-half cup of warm olive oil. Apply this paste on the affected area twice daily for at least one week.
You can also mix one-quarter or one-half teaspoon of cayenne pepper powder in one cup of apple cider vinegar. Soak a clean washcloth in this solution and apply it on the aching area for about 20 minutes once or twice daily until the pain and inflammation is reduced.
You can even apply a gel containing 0.0125 percent capsaicin topically to reduce knee pain.
Whether knee pain is due to arthritis, muscle strain or injury, ginger is an effective remedy to alleviate the pain. Its effectiveness comes from the presence of anti-inflammatory compounds in it. Ginger can reduce swelling on the knee as well as the pain.
Crush a small piece of fresh ginger root, add to one cup of water and boil it for 10 minutes. Strain and add a little honey and lemon juice. Drink two to three cups of this ginger tea daily until the pain is gone.
You can also massage the affected knee with ginger oil two or three times a day until you are satisfied with the results.
Turmeric is an effective and natural treatment to relieve knee pain. Turmeric contains a chemical called curcumin that has anti-inflammatory as well as antioxidant properties that help reduce pain.
Also, the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) reports that turmeric may slow the progression of rheumatoid arthritis, one of the main causes of knee pain.
Add one-half teaspoon each of ground ginger and turmeric to a cup of water and boil it for 10 minutes. Strain, add honey to taste, and enjoy twice daily.
Boil one teaspoon of turmeric powder in a glass of milk. Sweeten with honey and drink it once daily.
Another option is to take 250 to 500 mg turmeric capsules three times daily.
Follow these remedies daily until the pain is gone completely.
Note: As turmeric can thin the blood, these remedies are not suitable for those taking blood-thinning medicine.
Lemon has also been found beneficial as a home remedy for knee pain caused by arthritis. The citric acid found in lemon works as a solvent for uric acid crystals, which is the cause of some types of arthritis…”
- Remedies for Knee Pain…
“Massage Therapy: This technique is very effective in soothing aches and pains all over the body. Gently massage your knee area with some warm olive oil around two or three times a day. Make sure that the massage lasts for at least 5 to 10 minutes at each time.
Resting: When it comes to the treatment of many ailments and afflictions, this is one of the most important, yet commonly overlooked factors. However, it is absolutely essential that you refrain from putting too much pressure on your knees at all times. Giving your knee to heal from an injury or an inflammation will prevent a relapse.
Elevation: You could reduce the swelling in your knee by keeping it raised. Prop your affected leg on a couple of pillows, or sit on a recliner chair, which allows you to keep your legs elevated….

God Spoke: Will Never Again Have Pain in Knee – Left Knee Healed christianblog.com
“..In God’s healing of my left knee, God used a word from an orthopedic surgeon and a word of knowledge spoken on two different occasions by Gordon Robertson of the respected Christian program, The 700 Club, to confirm that my knee was being healed and that I will never again have pain in my left knee.
On a Sunday in mid January, 2011, after standing at the altar in church praising God for a period of time, I started feeling increased pain in my left knee. I had experienced some pain and discomfort before this, but had been ignoring it. The pain became more and more intense as this day went on. It felt like there was a tight band around the base of my knee and pain was emanating from that area. This strong pain did not want to stop and it got to be both an annoying and a gnawing form of pain. I resorted to an aspirin regiment to ease the discomfort.
In combating the problem with my knee, I prayed asking for healing and I put into action what I have been learning over the past several years. I commanded the pain to go, to leave my body, and I spoke healing and restoration to my knee, in the name of Jesus. When I did this, it seemed that the band of pain broke up and dispersed down my leg. So, then I was feeling discomfort and grawing pain down my leg originating from the knee.
So strongly do I believe what I have been sharing in the many blogs I have written on the subject of healing. I was not about to quit believing that my knee was being healed. That the healing power of God was at work. I asked God if He would in some way show me that my knee was being healed…”
