Exclamation Knee Buckling Remedies?

Alright nation! So I have buckled my right knee twice in several months. After the first time it happened, I took a break from playing for several months. I did a ice and heat compress along with wearing a knee brace. Eventually I switched to a compression sleeve once I felt my knee get better. After about 4 months (I think) of resting my knee and receiving physical therapy from a friend who is studying to be a physical therapist, I was able to walk and run without limping any pain. Seeing my knee was much better, I decided to play again. Unfortunately I buckled my knee a second time, and this one HURT BAD!!!! The pain was much sharper than the first "buckling." I repeated a ice and heat compress along with wearing a knee brace again.

I looked up what happens when a knee buckles, and I hope I didn't tear any major ligaments! I don't feel any of the symptoms, like a grinding feeling when I walk, but I still have to limp. I haven't seen my doctor yet, mainly because I've been really busy with school. I do plan on making an appointment, but I want to see if anyone here on pbn has buckled their knee and if they have any home remedies to share.

Rest, Ice, Compression, Exercise.

Don't force anything.
Do yoga, I swear. (or some other structured stretching routine, yoga is awesome)

Buckling could even be a gait/balance/coordination thing. Try working on your footwork and start actively thinking about your posture when you're doing anything active. Stretch and work all parts of your body, especially your core and hips. Practice will get you as close to perfect as possible.

My bad knees and back stem from a history of cycling. lol

I would also think you'll want to get examined by a doctor. If you've got knee stability issues, it could mean on going ligament problems, like torn ACL/MCL. Those don't just heal, they typically require surgery, at least if you want full knee function.

THIS IS IMPORTANT.

I've torn my ACL twice and my left knee is far less stable than the right. I can still play, but I have to wear a brace, and need to rest and ice as soon as I'm home.

First order of business, get checked out by a sports Doctor. Tell him what's going on. Then tell him the type of physical activity that you do and what's involved with paintball. He'll most likely recommend an MRI for conclusive results, and then depending on those results, maybe surgery, or maybe lateral stabilizing brace - which is what I have to wear.

From there, adjust your play style. Play D-side. Play home. Play something that doesn't require you to be as on your feet or as active as another side of the field.

The short of it, take care of your body bud. Don't try and play through something that's gonna cause issues down the line.

MRI

MRI MRI MRI MRI MRI

A THOUSAND TIMES MRI!!!!

The best money I've ever spent IN MY LIFE was getting an MRI to PROPERLY diagnose my knee. Even knee specialists can't completely diagnose full extent of damage to a knee without an MRI!!

I wouldn't be walking today if I didn't get one.

In my opinion you should've done it the first time you had trouble. Knees don't just buckle without screwing something up. I would put $100 on you needing surgery. And $1000 on you having torn something.

Look at your comment. Back to mine. Back to yours NOW BACK TO MINE. Sadly, it isn't mine. But if you stopped trolling and started posting legitimate crap it could LOOK like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through the comments, finding the ones that your comment could look like. Back at mine, what is it? It's a highly effective counter-troll. Look again, MY COMMENT IS NOW DIAMONDS.

Ya dude, something isn't right with that. I would maybe guess you did something to your meniscus? It's not as serious or debilitating as an ACL/MCL but still causes some pain and instability... good luck with the exam hope it's all intact!
