Tramatic Arthritis: Arthritis can be caused by the trauma of your fall. You also may have a soft tissue injury that can actually be corrected. For instance a meniscal tear or plica (scar tissue). And there's always the possibility of rheumatoid arthritis or other unusual cause. You should see a orthopedic surgeon for evaluation and x-rays.

Knee pain: In the absence of significant injury, knee pain or stiffness should not be of major concern. I would recommend resting the knee and trying mild over the counter anti-inflammatory agents. If your symptoms persist, I would see an orthopedic surgeon or a sports medicine specialist.
