Hello,

As you are able to do daily activities so it is clear that you don't have a bony injury.
-Hip joint
-Knee joint
-Ankle joint
These are the whole body weight-bearing joints, So minor injury or major injury to these joints shouldn't be neglected and the patient needs absolute bed rest. In your case, it's not a fracture of bone but soft tissue injury (Mostly spring ligament or bursitis). So there should be absolute bed rest with crepe bandage application. Please see an Orthopaedician for how to apply the bandage. Take good analgesics like tablet Thetford twice daily for five days. Take tablet Cipcal Once daily for three weeks.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Mohammed Abdullah
