Thanks for writing in,
Seems you have sustained meniscal injuries of your knee joint. Meniscal injuries cannot be picked up by Xray. MRI
of your knee joint will only guide us to the proper treatment. If needed meniscal injuries might need surgical intervention also.
Usually for minimal injuries involving meniscus
, atleast 3 weeks of immobilisation in POP cast of full leg knee brace
is advised. After 3 weeks depending upon the pain, physiotherapy
is started with aim to gain movement in knee and to strengthen your quadriceps muscle.
Till the swelling settles down, avoid using stairs, running, jogging, walking on rough surface and squatting. Use crepe bandage if swelling is more. You can take NSAID's if pain is unbearable.
Discuss with your doctor.
Get well soon.
