You may have these symptoms redness, swelling, tenderness, tingling, locking, grinding, weakness and instability. This can be the result of a fracture, a torn ACL, MCL, PCL, a Knee Sprain/ Strain, or a Dislocated Knee.


Broken Bones (Fracture) occur when the physical force applied on the bone is stronger than the bone itself.  There are two kinds Simple Fracture which is when the bone breaks but there is no open wound in the skin and Compound Fracture breaks through the skin.
