Trick Knee Gives Out

Here are two cases studies that show the impact of the treatment of an unstable knee. John and Pete were both in their 50s when they had their unstable knee diagnosed as a tear in their anterior cruciate ligaments. Each of them liked sports and were active since their childhood. Both of them had years to work before their retirement and had to be able to walk in order that they could get on with their activities of daily living. Neither of them had desk jobs.

Both John and Pete chose different treatments for their unstable knee problem, also referred to as a trick knee. The trick knee had a habit of giving out when they were walking, even if it was not always such a painful condition. Still, both men was aware that the problem had to be addressed.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — President Barack Obama took the stage at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night, closing out the three-day party confab with a speech that lays out his second-term goals and makes the case for why voters should give him another four years despite the disappointing economic recovery and disillusionment with his ‘hope and change’ message. Michelle, I love you. The other night, I think the entire country saw just how lucky I am. Malia and Sasha, you make me …


The problem with knee pain is that all the hard work you put into working out can waste away, very quickly, if you get an unexpected knee injury in the gym. This kind of knee pain problem can block your motivation to go the gym, because it is harder to go to the work out facility…

John went to see an orthopaedic surgeon at the behest of his doctor. The surgeon explained to him that the trick knee was attributable to a torn ligament and that it could be corrected with surgery. He explained that the surgery would keep him off work for a year and advised him to seek out disability. John had disability insurance and decided that he would go along with this recommendation. He took a leave of absence from his employment as a carpenter and underwent the surgery.

The surgery for the unstable knee was successful in repairing the ligament. John was in a hospital setting for a few days, during which time he got medication for the pain. When he got home, he had the morphine pump for a week and was then given a painkiller and asked to rest his knee for a couple of months.

QUESTION: How to give a good knee in the groin?? any trick??
Who's the best way to give pain to the balls??

  • If you want to just stun you enemy enough to break a hold then a quick "cup check" with the back of your hand will do the job. If you just want to put the hurt on someone then you only knee when you are close to them, shin from medium range and top of the foot from long range. I only suggest doing it in close range as they can grab your leg and slam you if they know they are your doing. To knee someone… drive your knee upward with your foot parallel to the ground (tell you why here in a second)… both of your hands need to grab onto them if you can, pulling your chest against their chest… keep you planted leg firmly behind you so they don't push you back… lean forward into them as your knee hits the groin… they will start to hunch over… take you striking leg and plant your foot behind one of their legs. As they hunch over push them back with both hands. They will fall over from being hit in the groin and your foot sweeping one of their legs out from under them.

  • That's dirty. You could go for a femoral or common peronial strike instead. Grasp around the neck and give a knee strike to these targets. They are located about 5 inches above the knee on the inside and outside of the leg. These strikes will drop the person. I always give 2 strikes.

  • geez, u don't really need to knee the balls… u can just graze balls and would hurt. as a dude, as much as it pains me to say this, just as hard as u can…

  • if you've given a Rhino before imagine that at a180 degree turn but thats way under the belt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Do it Muai Thai style: with your shin. This way you are almost certain of contact. When they are keeling over in pain, grab their head with both hands and slam their nose against your knee. K.O 😀

  • ALEX said it however that method isn't restricted to MUAY THAI .I learnt it in the 60s before anyone knew what muay thai was from my SENSEI.It's just a common sense adaptation of a front kick .If you are going to use the knee it's under and up straight in is for the tanden 3 inches below the navel .


  • He gradually began to feel less pain but was growing ever more dependent on the pain killers after a few weeks. He began rehabilitation. It took him longer to return to work than normal and he revealed that he was on disability for well over a year before returning to work, due to other complications with his health. He developed a dependency to painkillers during this time.

    Pete didn’t have disability insurance and was worried about taking so much time off work. He likewise had the option of going into surgery to help repair his ligament. However, he decided to use a knee support. He realized that this helped to solve his knee instability problems, because his knee didn’t give out nearly as much.

    Using knee braces and on occasion, over the counter medication, he controlled the problem. His physician also suggested that he lose some weight. These he did.

    Today, John is back at work and his knee feels pretty good. But the problem is that his other knee is starting to give him problems now. He found that the year off from work hurt him financially and it was also tough to go back into the swing of work. In addition, he felt that it was very hard to kick the painkiller habit. He is opting for more conservative treatment with the other knee and won’t undergo knee surgery, even though the surgery on his other knee was deemed a success.

    Pete still employs the use of a knee support and takes pain medication once in a while. He also began a swimming program and after working out for 2 months he lost 12 pounds. He feels in better shape than ever and the trick knee doesn’t give him much of a problem at all.

    If you feel like one or other of your knees is unstable, then you should consider taking your stability to the next step with a low profile brace. Knee supports can greatly add to the stability of your knee and can have you looking back six months from now, wondering what you ever did without one.
