A member asked:

I fell on my left knee last night on a concrete floor, and now it is swollen, stiff, and hurts when i bend it. should i see a doc or just use rice?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Can you walk on it?: If you can not walk on that leg (putting full weight on it with each step), or if you can't bend the knee to 90 degrees, or if the knee cap is tender when you touch it, you probably need an xray. Otherwise you can probably wait a few days. Either way, rice would be helpful.
