Overcoming Knee Swelling Due To Injury And Difficult To Bend?
I want to ask, my knee injury in the knee area is swollen and difficult to bend, and instead I massaged the knee area, what am I doing now
Pain in the knee can be caused by several things including arthritis or excessive activity during sports, or injury due to accidents, it can also be related to body weight.
Knee pain due to injury also has several possible causes including:
knee fracture or fracture
ligament injuries, usually the result of sports injuries that often involve the anterior cruciate ligament
knee cartilage injury
tensing the knee muscles
To ascertain the cause of the symptoms of pain and swelling in your knee after the injury, by doing a direct examination to the doctor at the hospital, later direct examinations will be carried out, and possibly additional examinations such as X-rays. Treatment that will be given is in accordance with the underlying disease.
Some of the things you can do:
taking pain relievers such as paracetamol
ice pack / cold compress
rest use of knees
do not run, jump, or climb stairs too much
use an over-the-counter elastic bandage
elevate the leg that is injured
Do not massage or massage the swollen or injured area as this can make the condition worse
