Ace Bandage Knee Wrap
I'm having bad knee pain. Would wrapping it with an ACE bandage work or something more serious. My knee pain is: feels like its gonna give out; pain?
Start with RICE: I'm sorry to hear of your discomfort. Did you injury your knee? Regardless, i recommend you start with rice, and the "c" can be accomplished with the ace bandage you mentioned. With the sensation that your knee is going to "give out" you should plan to see an orthopedist, especially if it does not get better soon.

I hit my leg below my knees was swollen. I put ice and wrapped it with a bandage for a week. Now I look at my foot on the side of my foot is purple?
Bandaging can do: that. I find this happens often wafter doing surgery on one part of the foot and after removing the bandage there is purple in another part of the foot. I think the bandaging possibly causes blood vessels to break or leak and the blood spilling causes the black and blue marks. No worries should disappear soon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Swelling?: If the knee is swollen, then both the straightening and bending of the knee beyond 30 degrees causes pain that is due to increased pressures in the knee and stretching of the capsule of the joint. If you have had a recent injury that has left your knee swollen and painful as you described it, it may be due to soft tissue injury sustained by your ligaments or menisci.
