A locked knee can be an occasional, temporary occurrence or a chronic condition that leaves you unable to bend or straighten your knee for long periods.
Knees are designed to bend up and down, and even slightly rotate. If your knee cannot perform these functions, it can impact your mobility and affect your ability to sit, stand, squat and kneel properly.
A true locked knee happens when your knee joint is literally locked into place and cannot move, whereas a pseudo locked knee occurs when moving the knee becomes difficult as a result of pain.
If you are experiencing occasional or chronic knee pain, our specialists at OrthoNeuro in Columbus, Ohio can help you get back on track. Call one of our offices today or book an appointment online.
