Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.
From the description, I feel that you might have injured the MENISCUS
in the knee joint. These meniscii act as shock
absorbers for the knee joint.
The conservative management is as follows -
* avoid impact sporting activities that puts more strain on the knee joint
* rest and ice packing of the knee joint
* elastic compression bandage to resolve the swelling
for quadriceps strengthening
and antiinflammatory medicines as and when needed
If symtoms are persisting, then an MRI
scan is mandatory to make a diagnosis.
Consult an orthopedic surgeon and follow his advice.
Hope this information is helpful. Good day
