The kneecap feels like it slides out of place.
The knee does not have full motion.
There is a painful “popping” or clicking sound.
There is knee pain without an injury; it hurts during or after activity.
The knee is “locking,” or getting stuck, and is not able to move.
The knee does not have good strength.
The knee is swelling–with or without a traumatic (sudden) injury.
While at home, initial treatment should be RICE:
REST
ICE
