Thanks for writing to HCM

You should go for MRI Scan of knee joint.
MRI is the investigation of choice for soft tissue injury.
X-rays can detect only bony fracture and give rough idea about fat planes.
MRI can detect ACL/PCL injury, meniscus injury, joint effusion etc.
Mild to moderate injuries are treated conservatively whereas severe cases are treated surgically.
Get well soon.
