Non-bending Knee, Pain, Swelling And Blue Bruises After Falling Off The Motorbike?
Hello, I want to ask, 10 days ago I fell right when I wanted to ride a motorbike, whether it was unbalanced or I could not hold my left knee suddenly like sprained a bone, after that I was taken to a massage therapist and I was treated for 1 week, still sick too and I finally I got an X-ray to the hospital, after the X-ray my bones were good, nothing was cracked or broken, the shell was good, but why until now it still hurts, you can’t bend it, can only go straight, and you still have to use a stick to walk … a little blue on the knee, why do you think that is? What is the tendon or what? Please explain, and the solution. Thank you
Thank you Adisti Mala for the question on the HealthReplies.com forum, an injury to the knee due to an accident can cause various problems such as:
- bruising (hematoma)
- ligament damage
- broken bones
- accumulation of blood in the joints
- nervous breakdown
Bruising is one of the most common conditions in accident cases. Where this situation occurs due to damage to blood vessels in the surrounding tissue resulting in an accumulation of blood in the tissue. In this condition, it is not uncommon to have some accompanying symptoms such as:
- Looks red or brown spots
Bruising in the joint area can certainly cause difficulty in moving, especially due to the pain and swelling it causes, but in general, movement can still be done, although it may not be done optimally at first. In such conditions, complaints will usually improve over time, where the average cure is about 2 to 4 weeks. Regarding your current condition, where X-rays have been performed, it is likely that the condition you experienced is not based on a bone disorder. Therefore, if this condition continues and there is no change, you should be able to return to consult with the related doctor so that you can re-evaluate it to ascertain the underlying cause of your current condition.
