Pain In The Knee After Falling?
afternoon, want to ask
Hello Dita, Thank you for the question.
Have you seen a doctor to determine the cause of your complaint? Do you take antibiotics as a recommendation from your doctor? Antibiotics are drugs that are used to treat bacterial infections in the body. If pain in the area behind the knee is caused by infection, antibiotics are usually needed. However, if it is not caused by antibiotics, then treatment with antibiotics is certainly not appropriate.
Can you still walk after falling? Can you still walk right now? The effect of injury / fall on your body depends on the severity of the injury itself, some can cause fractures, injuries to the body, injuries to soft tissues (muscles, tendons, or ligaments), and others. If this complaint does not improve for 3 weeks, you should immediately consult a doctor directly. The doctor will ask further questions about your injury and symptoms and examine you. If necessary, the doctor will perform other examinations such as x-rays, ultrasound, or MRI. From this examination, the doctor will determine the right treatment for you. In the meantime, please do a warm compress regularly on the affected area. Avoid sudden leg movements. If the pain is unbearable, please take paracetamol or other pain relievers.
I hope this helps.
