Answer . Some people get similar symptoms from consuming aspartame, it is used in "diet" drinks.
Answer . Yes you can break your kneecap. If you did, it is very important to go to the hospital. if you wait too long, they might not be able to fix it with surgery. if you go now, you will probably have to have surgery, but its better than not having a knee. :)
This would usually occur after significant trauma directly to the knee cap (patella) and would be accompanied by pain and swelling. X-rays are required to confirm whether it not it is broken.
The patella (Knee cap) serves as a protector of the anterior surface of the knee. Also, the extensor muscles of the leg insert on the patella.
You would not be able to move or walk or run or swim. You would not be able to move your leg at all.
Babies do not have knee caps. They do not get knee caps until they are about 3 or 4 years old. I hope this answer helped who ever asked this weird question.
NO GIRAFFES HAVE NO KNEE CAP. THERE LEGS WILL BEND 180 DEGREE (FRONT TO BACK). THE KNEE WILL ONLY BEND 45 DEGREES.
hard lump below the knee - hot but no infection, burning feeling if I stand to long.
Yes, cats do have kneecaps. It's called the patella and is justbelow the thigh bone on all four legs.
the patella i think it is because that is the knee caps real name in the skeletal system
Limping, pain 4 to 5 not severed. Can't walk as normal as you think. Don't try to run..it will hurt bad. avoid stairs, squatting..and last see a doc for more precise professional advise...and get x-rayed. Believe me.
This depends on which way you are pushing. Your knee is a hinge joint and is made to flex and extend one way only. Pushing the hinge in the other way can be catastrophic and could be broken from upwards of 30 pounds.
The knee is protected by The patella, also known as the knee cap or kneepan.
It is perfectly fine if the knee cap moves just a little bit, because some people can do that. Though, if the knee cap moves too much, then it becomes a health concern.
i hard kick could break your knee but not your knee cap. your knee cap is solid bone its like trying to break a really hard and thick rock It maybe hard, but not impossible, i broke about a 1/4 of my knee cap off by a simple fall in my kitchen. Of course, it dislocated first, but still possible.
Yes; the knee cap, whose technical name is the patella, is part of the skeletal system. Sometimes referred to as a "floating" bone, the patella is not directly connected to any other bones. It is surrounded by muscles instead, the bottom portion of which is connected to the tibia, or shin, by patell…ar tendons. The patella is triangular in shape and normally resides in front of the knee joint, shielding it from possible damage. (MORE)
You are probably talking about Osgood Schlatters disease. A disease that occurs when your bone grows fater than your muscle ( pain is felt at the top of the shin bone ). It could also be SLJS, which is almost identical to OSD in every way except the pain is felt at the bery bottom point of the knee …kap rather than the top of the shin bone.Sinding Larsen Johanson Syndrome.

I shattered my kneecap after a fall and to tell you the truth, for the first few days, it caused me some of the worst pain I have ever had in my life.
Yes you can. Start kneeling up (not sitting kneeling), and put one knee slightly in front of the other. Shift your weight on that knee from the back to the front, slowly. Do on other knee. This is great for relieving pain in your joints, and it feels good.
No, afraid not. For example: if you broke your kneecap (patella), you would be in absolute agony and that alone should prevent you from even moving the leg, never mind say walking with it. It can be done but it is extremely painful. With the proper medical attention and casting may people have ma…naged quite well with crutches until healing has taken place. (MORE)
You cannot cure it, that is how your bone grows. It doesn't effect anything too.
Knee caps are also called Patellae in scientific communities. A single knee cap is called a patella .
The indications for surgery with progressive joint failure are worsening chronic. pain and a loss of range of motion. In the case presented neither of these. complications are mentioned so surgery at this point is not indicated.. Barry
The bone in the front of a woman's knee is typically less prominent than in a man's knee. But the women's tends to be wider.
Your knee caps are also called Patellae . Or Patella for a single knee cap.
Not exactly. A cow's knees are actually equivalent to our wrists,not like the knees we have on our legs, and are found on the frontlegs, not the back like ours would be if we stood on "four legs."The TRUE "knees" on a cow is up in her body under the pelvis and isnot visible unless she is dead and al…l her organs, skin, muscle andcartilage has been removed revealing her entire skeletal structure.Such an area on a cow's hind legs are not as flexible as our legs,which is why it is not seen on these large domesticated ungulates.

The patella , also known as the knee cap or knee pan , is a thick, circular-triangular bone which articulates with the femur and covers and protects the anterior articular surface of the knee joint. It is the largest sesamoid bone in the human body.
well actually your knee cap does move see the kneecap is connected by muscles which allow it to move with the joint. it is connected to the femur . try this extend your leg outward you 'll notice your knee feels looser now flex your leg inward you'll notice your knee feels tighter. the point is your… knee cap does move you just cant notice it (MORE)
depending on the cause of pain you could try medication, heating pads or ice paks
you'll know its outta place when you you see the patella (small little triangular bone) not in the middle but could be on the top,side ect.
What appears to be a birds knees at first sight are actually its ankles. The toes are flat on the ground and the rest of a very long thin foot goes up to the next joint, the ankle. The knee of the bird is covered in feathers. In the flamingo it is particularly noticeable and makes the bird look comi…cal until you realise that it is not its knees bending the wrong way, but its ankles bending the right way. (MORE)
Technically, your knee is not comprised of just one bone. It's a joint, which allows movement. The femur and then the tibia and fibula meet under the kneecap, which is known as the patella. There are arteries, veins and nerves that are located alongside and on top of the knee joint. If these are inj…ured in any way, it is a surgical emergency, and could possibly lead to death. The purpose of the patella is to protect the arteries, veins and nerves, and in turn, protecting a person's life. (MORE)
You have to be more specific on your symptoms. If you knee cap is painful then you need to see an orthopedic surgeon for evaluation. If you do not experience pain then there is probably no long term effects.
It is not normal, but not significantly abnormal either. It can be an indicator of some serious injuries, however, so you are advised to see a doctor. If nothing else, it will put your mind at ease. Try not to play with it too much; you might end up damaging it yourself.
Patellar means pertaining to the kneecap. The patella is the medical term for the knee cap.
you would be in agony like i am cause i did a cartwheel and fell on my knee cap and i don't want to tell my parent because she would be really mad at me anyway you'd know because u wouldn't be able to walk or even use the leg
The relationship is that they are both major bones of the body, and that they are formed from the sme type of bone tissuses. They are the only 2 like that in your whole body every other bone is made of different types of tissuses.
it could just heal or titanium pins could be inserted to make it heal straight
Penguins do not have kneecaps, because they do not need them. Not having kneecaps makes them more streamlined than other birds, which they need to be to be fast enough to catch their food.

Most mammals have a patella, the kneecap bone. Marsupials tend not to have them, or have ones made out of cartiligous extensions. But the placental mammals do have them.
Well, I don't know if your knee cap can just flip upside down one day, but maybe if you got seriously injured on your knee. I was born with it like that, so maybe it's just something you have always had, you just haven't noticed
Depends on the severity of the break. If it's not too bad, you will most likely be in crutches for 4 to 6 weeks. However, if the break is severe, you may be required to use crutches as long as you have a brace on.
FLAMINGOS can eat so diff. from humans. They can fly which is also what a human cant do either.
if you CANNOT stand or sit without it hurting.... yep it's a break. no amount of aspirin (this side of suicide) is going to help. you can try your "friends pill" that will take al pain away, but if you still get up ( which you will) after it's worn off and you discover your f$#%# up....well son, it'…s broke. Go see a doctor. (MORE)

yes the knee cap is necessary. it is needed in walking, running, jogging, and any other physical activities that require you to use your legs. it prevents your legs from literally bending backwards. it also protects all the ligaments behind itself.
Rehabilitation time for injuries to the kneecap can vary depending on both the specific injury and the individual who suffered it. If the kneecap is fractured, rehabilitation time is usually six to eight weeks. If the kneecap is dislocated, rehabilitation time is usually 6 weeks (without surgery) …to six months (if treated surgically). (MORE)
