popped knee


Recommended Posts

during class yesterday a girl popped her knee! :P the paramedics came to take her to the hospital because they thought that she had done something even further then popping it. they said it was because she did not keep her knee over her toes. is this like forcing your turnout or something??? :wink:

Yes, without going into great detail, you can injure your knee very seriously in forcing turnout. It's one reason that we are constantly cautioning against it.

Sounds like the kneecap might have dislocated, and perhaps it went back in. But that is a serious injury, and takes time to recover. It can certainly be caused by turning out the feet more than the hips can support, and the knees then do not track over the toes.
