Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
The presence of pain in the leg at the knee and begins with slipping in the shower can cause injury to several parts of the foot according to the fall mechanism. The possibility of injury can hit the ankle when slipped, and other parts that hit when falling such as the knee or thigh. There are several possible causes of pain in the knee and ankle that occur including:
Sprain in the area of the ligament involved injury (possibly ankles, knees, back of the leg) due to injuries experienced when slipping. It can be marked by pain when the league area is stretched when activity is being used or weight is concentrated. Strain to the area of the ligament involved injury due to slip. It can be characterized by pain and sensation of tension and spasm or recurrent twitching of the muscles and supporting structures of the muscles around the area involved. Tearing of the ligaments or supporting structures of muscles and bones around the area of injury involved. Injuries to muscles that cause swelling and pain when used. Risk factors for healing injuries to your feet can be slowed down by the use of the injured area in daily activities. In injury recovery can use the RICE concept of Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. Areas involved in injuries should be rested and not used in activities, compress with ice to relieve pain or with warm water to help relieve inflammation, as well as elevation / raise the foot involved higher injuries to help relax and reduce blood flow to the affected area.
If it is already disturbing such as difficulty standing or bending, it is advisable to consult a doctor or orthopedic doctor for further examination and management. It is not recommended to order or other alternatives without consulting and doctor's instructions, avoid consuming self-medication without consulting a doctor, minimize the use of injured parts.
