The Back Knee Aches After Falling?
Is it true because there is a torn muscle? How to cure it …
Hello Alfina, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Trauma (impact / injury) involving the knee area can indeed cause a variety of damage to the structures of organs that are in that area such as tears in the muscles, tears in the ligaments (joint supporting tissues), or fractures in the kneecap bones.
Therefore, to ascertain which conditions are causing your complaints at this time, it is highly recommended that you check your knee condition further to an orthopedic specialist. The doctor may suggest you to carry out further examinations such as X-ray of the knee or other tests according to consideration, to ascertain how the condition of your knee and which structure is disturbed. After it is discovered what injury you are experiencing, then you can also determine what therapy you should undergo, whether it is enough with medication or require further action such as operative or physiotherapy.
For now, it is strongly recommended that you immediately consult a orthopedic doctor or the emergency room hospital if you have just slipped and the complaint is unbearable. It is also recommended that you limit the movement of your injured knee area by using the splint and not using the injured leg as a pedestal to walk. Crutches can still be used, but still added with splints.
If the pain is very disturbing, you can take paracetamol to help relieve the pain according to the dosage on the package.
I hope this helps.
