Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm a Consultant Rheumatologist and I am reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
How old are you?
Any swelling in the knee?
Thanks for the details
I think you need to use an anti-inflammatory like Ibuprofen and have physiotherapy for a couple of weeks
This can be a soft tissue sprain like a bruised tendon or muscle
Only if it does not get better after this treatment then you will need an imaging including an X-ray and MRI scan
Please do let me know if you have any other question
Any other question ?
If done please leave a 5-stars feedback rating
Yes you can but avoid putting too much strain on the knee
You can apply topical anti-inflammatory like Voltaren gel as well
