Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.
From the given description , I feel that you have suffered a Soft tissue injury
in the knee joint either a meniscus
, cruciate ligament injury
or collateral ligament damage.
Any injury of these structures can only be diagnosed accurately by undergoing an MRI
scan of the knee joint.
In the mean time, follow the below mentioned steps -
* Rest to the injured part and don’t involve in activities which puts additional strain on the injured tissues.
* Ice packing should be applied for about 20 minutes once in every 2 hours.
* Use elastic compression bandage if there is a swelling
& anti inflammatory medications
Hope this information is helpful. Good day
