The Knee Is Often Painful In A History Of Accidents?
Hello r nDok, I had a motorbike accident about 10 years ago, at that time the motorbike crushed my knee (not the kneecap), until now the pain is still felt, it hurts when I press it or for example hit something. Then I went to the doctor before, then he was given medicine, when I took the medicine, the pain disappeared, when the medicine was finished the pain returned again. Then when I run, the sore knee feels like it will fall out, so I’m afraid. I looked for information on the internet, he said, he injured the knee joint. R nWhat is the name of the disease? How do you do it? What should I do to get better soon? R n r nThank you very much 🙂
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Knee injury is a condition that can happen to anyone. This is because this injury most often occurs due to an accident or accident, whether when driving, playing sports, falling or so on. So that someone who is active, especially in sports, is more likely to have an injury risk.
Structurally, the knee has the following arrangement.
So any damage to that area can lead to knee injuries, and yes, knee injuries aren't always the result of damage to the kneecap, or kneecap, or patella. Among other causes of knee injuries are:
Damage to the anterior cruciate ligament structure Damage to the lateral and medial collateral ligament structures Damage to the tendon or meniscus structure
Damage to any part can cause disruption in activities that use the knee, such as running. And the feeling of a knock-on kneecap can also occur when there is a tear in the structure that holds the kneecap in place. Our advice, check your condition at an orthopedic surgeon or orthopedic specialist for further tests, especially if it is true that this is the same condition that hit you 10 years ago.
Your doctor will move your knee back and forth to find out where the abnormality is, also ask you to do an X-ray or MRI to confirm before determining the right therapy for you. The treatment method varies depending on the severity and is divided into treatments that involve or do not involve surgery. Your orthopedist will be better off explaining this to you after the examination.
Meanwhile, avoid excessive activities that use your knees such as running or jumping, because even though 10 years have passed, if the damage is still there, these activities can make things worse. If it hurts, you can compress your knee with a warm compress, use an anti-pain ointment or take an over-the-counter pain medication by reading the instructions listed. Also multiply foods high in protein to help healing such as eggs, milk, yogurt, cheese and meat. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
