Depends on severity: A "sprained" knee can range from a mild injury to the joint to severe injuries including tears of the ligaments. Recovery following mild injuries may be 1-3 weeks but can take up to 3 months for more significant injuries. Pain lasting more than 6 weeks should prompt an evaluation, usually best done by an orthopaedic surgeon.
Grade 2 knee sprain.. Started using brace 10 days later. Been using brace for 7 days and pain recedes but recurs randomly. How long will it take?
6-8 weeks: For sprain to heal. Focus on strengthening muscles around the knee to heal faster.
Few days to weeks: Swelling usually subsides in 2 weeks but sometimes can take a little bit longer. If you have fluid (effusion) in the joint then it indicates internal damage to meniscus or cruciate ligaments.See 1 more doctor answer
I had knee sprain for so long time already. It doesn't cured. Can I do light exercises such as dance and swimming?
Knee strain: I understand your frustration. Do not become VICTIM of your pain, swelling or some limitations. Make DVD of your activities prior to knee strain-walking, jogging, hiking, swimming, different kinds of dancing, sports; put music and narration with your creativity-Love your Knee. See Orthopedic Specialist, have MRI for status of knee, discuss P.T., Medications, ultrasound, dance and swimming.
Light exercise ok: You should be able to perform light stretching and isometric knee exercises. Aerobic activities such as light swimming, aquatherapy, and stationary bike should be fine. Do not do anything which aggregates the pain.
See and orthopedist: Have it evaluated by an orthopedist. You may need to have it immobilized. In some more sever cases you may need to have surgical repair.See 1 more doctor answer
What to do if I had a knee sprain in september of last year and it still hurts what is wrong with it?
See Orthopedic Doc: You need to see an orthopedic specialist/surgeon to see why you are having such pain.
Could be: That could very well be the case. If it does not respond to rest, ice, elevation or if it is severe I would not hesitate to be seen and examined for an accurate diagnosis.
MCL sprain: It depends upon the severity and other associated injuries, such as meniscal tear, acl and PCL and lcl tear. A mild sprain (grade! Mcl) just requires rest/possible short term bracing. Isolated mcls usually don't require surgery. If surgery is being done for other reasons and the mcl is grade 3 (complete), then surgery can be entertained.
You see: The orthopedist who takes an x-ray and tells you.
I am experiencing knee pain and I'm just curious if it could be a knee sprain because although I can bend it still I can't straighten it.?
Meniscus tear?: Being unable to straighten the knee could be indicative of a lateral meniscus tear. It's best to see someone who can diagnose it.See 1 more doctor answer
