I fell onto my right knee and kneeCAP is numb. Calf and foot are NOT numb. Knee is very bruised but still has full range of motion. Treatment advice?

If you are just having this symptom, and no other pain, it is probably nothing to worry about. If you notice weakness in the muscle, or worse pain with coughing, then it could be from the spine. See a doctor if that is the case. ...Read more
