Thank you for the query.The injury happened 10 years ago will heal by it own till now.But the cause of the swollen knee may be due to heels that you have used on that day.High heels causes much more pressure to be extended on the knees.The force that causes such pressure is more than what the knee are designed for and may give rise to osteoarthritis in long term use.So kindly avoid using them regularly and for know stretching and foot exercises will help you.Thank you.

Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

Q. Why is this happening and how to heal?
Wearing heels of 2 inch for 5 hours has injured your knee joint. swelling and pain may be due to tendon or ligament injury.
For healing take complete rest, tab. Aceclofenac with serratiopeptidase and consult your orthopedician for examination and management. You may need to get done radiological examination for the diagnosis.
Hope I answered your question. Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries. Wish you good health. Take care.
