Knee injuries: You may have sustained contusons of both knees, but the presence of swelling is concerning and, I feel, warrants an evaluation preferably by an orthopedic specialist so that appropriate testing, treatment and follow-up care is obtained. Traumatic bursitis with effusion, linear fracture of patella or other bones, bleeding into the joint are possibilities.
