Thanks for your query.

Based on the injury and the painful movements you have I suspect you to have a Ligament injury in the knee joint.

I suggest you to consult an Orthopedician who can examine your knee and ascertain the exact ligament involved and advice specific treatment.

Meanwhile do apply a CREPE bandage over the affected joint and apply painkiller like DICLOFENAC gel twice daily without massaging the affected part.

Hope I answered your query.

Please do let me know if there are any other concerns.
