Hard to say: There are many moving parts in the knee. If you have a lot of swelling, it may mean you tore the meniscus, the padding between the tibia and femur, or you might have torn a ligament. But it could also be a minor contusion (bruising). You will not know unless you see an orthopedic doctor who will do an exam and may or may not order an MRI which is the best way of seeing looking inside the knee. ...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

I had my discoid meniscus surgery 2weeks ago and i got an exercise by my physio to lie on my stomach and raise my leg when I do it my knee popsno pain?

Common: When the discoid meniscus is debrided to make a semilunar shape, the contour of the edges tend to be irregular. This makes the popping sound more likely. The body should recontour this edge over time, and the noise will lessen or subside. General rule is "noise" is no big deal, but "painful noise" may be a problem. If you experience pain, see surgeon who did the work-- might need steroid shot. ...Read more

Cartilage damage?: you could have an internal derangement that is causing your clicking and pain. If you haven't had it checked out yet, see an orthopedic specialist. He will need to know when the clicking occurs and what things make your knee feel worse. You may need x-rays and possibly an MRI. ...Read more

I hurt my elbow and forearm in dance the other night. I landed flat on it and it was straight. I can't bend/straighten my elbow. Any answers? ~kasi~

See an Orthopedist -: To be examined and x-rayed to diagnose that you haven't gotten a fx, as outer bone in the elbow (radial head) can very easily get a fx, causing the symptoms you have. Other bones can also be fxed. Other causes could be a sprain of the ligaments, or contusion. Any elbow injury can result in loss of motion with pain. So seeing an orthopedist will be helpful. Good luck. ...Read more
