I fell hitting concrete floor hard when i did the vein in my knee puffed up, my knee felt numb. There is burning pain, bruise&swelling. What is it?

Neuroma: If this is recent, then the burning can just be from the bruising. But if it has been a while, there is a small skin nerve around the knee that can get injured with surgery or hard falls such as this. That would cause the burning sensation. I would get it evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more

I tripped and hit my knee directly on a concrete stair. I'm not able to bend my knee all the way back. The lower knee is in pain. Wait or go to Dr?

I would: I would probably be checked unless it seems very minor. An X-ray and exam can be reassuring to make sure you did not have a serious injury that needs further treatment. ...Read more

I hit my knee cap against concrete a few weeks ago. The pain in movement is finally gone. How do I know if it is ok to resume treadmill exercises?

OK to resume : If the pain is gone, it should be ok to resume activities such as the treadmill. You suffered a knee contusion. I would continue taking advil (ibuprofen) prior to working out and ice after if you are having any pain or swelling. If the knee continues to bother you, see an orthopaedic surgeon. ...Read more

Knee bruise: Could be just contusion, so ice, rest elevate try crutches, motrin /alelve ( if not allergic). if still having pain in 2-3 days with difficulty walking get xray ( or if you want get it sooner-today ) just to rule out patella fracture. without xray we can not tell if it is fractured. F/u with doc/urgent care. Bruises take about a week to start feeling better, fractures need treatment ...Read more

Black & Blue mark appeared on skin on top of where stone staple from previous ACL surgery was. I don't recall hitting knee. Just coincidence?

Black & Blue mark appeared on skin on top of where stone staple from previous ACL surgery was. I don't recall hitting knee. Just coincidence?

Black and blue/ACL: Likely nothing to worry about - not sure what you mean by stone staple - staples are metal and removed when area is healed - as long as the area is not warm and red and tender its likely you suffered a bruise - from a minimal injury and this is what you are seeing. If it gets worse - contact your surgeon. Good luck ...Read more
