knee trauma

Postby janw » Tue Mar 06, 2012 3:19 pm

I fell on my knee 5 weeks ago and it is still swollen and unable to kneel on it. I can walk okay but cannot touch the area just below kneecap. Any suggestions? I can't afford to go to the doctor re xrays etc. Have been using a pillow under it while sitting and cold compresses.

Hello Janw,

Thank you for your posting.

Unfortunately, we are not in a position to make specific treatment recommendations in light of the fact that your injury has not been properly diagnosed.

We certainly under the context of the expense one can incur when seeking medical advice, however, it is something we advise you too strongly consider.

Treatment protocols can vary greatly from injury to injury - even if the appearance and symptoms seem relatively similar. This is why it is best to obtain a thorough diagnosis as one does not want to implement a regiment of treatments that may provide little or no benefit...or worse, cause a setback in the recovery cycle.

If you have any other questions, please let us know.
