Hello, Exactly a week ago I fell at my figure skating class on my knee doing a jump, but it really wasn t a hard fall. My knee has been hurting ever since, expecially after I run in gym class, or when I am carrying heavy weights, for example my books, and walking up stairs. I can walk, it is stable and never showed any signs of swelling or bruising. However, I cannot do anymore jumps because I have to land them on the leg with the hurt knee, and it is somewhat painful. I am icing it and elevating it when I sleep , everyday, but it has been the same pain all week, never getting worse nor better. Would this heal on its own, or do I need to do something else besides icing and hope for the best?
