After a bad fall, hittin the knee now knee cap is swollen, couple of cuts and extremely painful, suspected ruptured bursa sac. How can a xray prove?
X-ray may help: X-ray is needed to rule out bone injury and if struck directly you could have broken your kneecap. If there is a fracture it must be treated.

With cuts and any possibility of a fracture you should go to the ER because of risk of bone infection. ...Read more

If you still have knee cap pain after the scope, you may benefit from viscosupplementation injections to improve the pain. ...Read more
