In orthopedic injuries the direction of force and the extent of injury should be assessed. From what information has been provided it can be said there's soft tissue injury involving ligaments and tendons. Kindly consult orthopedic surgeon as X-ray and probably MRI scanning might be required to assess the injuries so proper treatment can be instituted.
