Hurt leg while dancing. No relief with applying ice. Suggestions?
Hi, I m 15 and I m on my schools dance team. we were doing a roll on the floor and I landed on my knee and when I tried to roll up all the way I couldn t so I moved to the side with my leg straight and pointed and flexed my toes. I hurt when I flexed and when I tried bending I started crying because it hurt so bad. I iced it for abut 45 minutes and had to walk to the car which hurt but was manageable if I walked only using my toes and I can not bend it with out intense pain.
HI Thanx for query I can feel your concern I advise you to take rest Apply some local analgesic like ibuprofen gel over it Take some oral painkiller Avoid doing any physical exertion Continue icing Hope it helps Regards Dr imran
