18 Ways To Handle Knee Pain
When To Call A Doctor About Knee Pain
The abrupt twisting motions that occur in basketball or skiing, or side impact to the knee, perhaps from a car accident or football tackle, can result in a knee injury. Generally the cruciate ligament or the medial or lateral collateral ligament of the knee is damaged. These injuries may or may not involve pain when they occur, but you may hear a buckle sound or “pop.” Tendinitis and ruptured tendons can happen with overuse, or when you attempt to break a fall. These injuries may be followed by swelling, tenderness, radiating pain, and perhaps some discoloration and loss of motion. Your knee should be iced, and then seen by a doctor as soon as possible.
