Hi I'm Dr. Phil
Can I ask your first name?
nice to meet you
any swelling or puffiness behind the knee?
have you had any injury?
that indicates you probably have a meniscus injury or ligament
you really need an MRI of the knee
I would use a knee brace.
also elevate the knee
and ibuprofen is better than paracetamol
and ice after activity
yes it would help stabilize
safe to leave on all day as long as its not too tight
okay that indicates structural damage
probably a meniscus or ligament
MRI will show it
good physio will help too
It can take up to a year to heal fully
any more questions for me?
if that doesn't work, surgery
any more questions?
did I do good work for you today?
would you be so kind as to rate me positive before leaving :)
I greatly appreciate it
