Knee injury: See pcp/sports med/orthopedics doc for evaluation of knee. May need x-ray/mri to check for internal damage or bone injury. Even if no swelling, rice (rest, ice, compression [ace bandage/knee brace], elevation). Use crutches if necessary to prevent further injury until doc evaluates. Nsaids for pain & inflammation.
