Overcoming Knee Pain After A Fall?
Hello. I want to ask, this is when I fell from my motorbike on May 7 yesterday. And as a result, my left knee often feels pain, especially when I am made to stand for a long time and sit between two prostrations during prayer. I had an X-ray of the bones, there were no fractures or cracks, but when I consulted, he said that his muscles were problematic. After that yesterday I tried to check again because I still felt pain at the orthopedic clinic, he said, normal and I was only given medicine and vitamins. But now I still feel pain, even more often it feels. What should I do now?
Hi David Eko .. Thanks for the question.
After experiencing an injury to the knee, there are several conditions that can occur including:
Tension of the knee muscle sprains due to ligament tear Inflammation of the knee fluid sacs of nerves and blood vessels Shifting of bones and fractures If the X-ray results do not show abnormalities in the knee, the cause of the pain you still feel can be due to muscle, nerve, or other problems other knee tissue. To be sure, it requires a direct examination by a doctor.
Apart from that you can do:
Avoid activities or sports that are too strenuous To prevent pain you can compress the knee area with a cold towel, take paracetamol according to the dosage, or bandage the knee area Avoid alcoholic drinks and eat nutritious food If lying down put the feet higher Hope it is useful
