I was playing basketball and fell, now my knee is hot and has a soft spot on the top of my knee, do I need to get that checked out?
Basketball Injury: If you fell and landed on your knee then the odds are that you bruised the kneecap and also the tendon. If you can straighten your knee while seated then you probably did not damage your quadriceps. If there is an area of swelling over the patella and it feels like fluid then it may need to be aspirated. ...Read more

Why do we get a bump when we hit our head? I was playing basketball and hit my head against someone's forehead and now I have a bump that hurts.
Contusion/hematoma: Contusion is our fancy word for bruise while hematoma refers to a collection of blood. You can develop a bump anywhere you get hit but it's more noticeable on your head because your skull is so close so surface that swelling can't go anywhere inwards so it swells outwards as a bump. You'll notice soreness on your thigh for instance when hit there but no swelling per se b/c it's gone inwards. ...Read more

?sprain: Most likely a sprain of the knee area but with severe pain, discoloration or with significant swelling, i would recommend an examination.

I jammed my finger playing basketball a week ago and i still can't close my fist without it hurting. Should i be worried and get x-rays?
Yes: Yes. Although uncommon, there are a few types of fractures that require orthopedic intervention to avoid long term complications. Also, if there is a fracture, at the very least you would want to immobilize it to aid healing. Keep in mind that x-rays really only show bone injury and you may have a partial (assuming you have full range of motion) tear of a ligament or tendon which take time to heal. ...Read more
Should i get my ankle x-rayed? I rolled it 6 weeks ago and am still having problems. I twisted my ankle 6 weeks ago playing basketball. My left ankle rolled to the outside. When i did it i thought it was broken. I could not walk for 30 min, then the next
You : You should absolutely get an x-ray. The ankle is a very complicated joint, and the joint just beneath the ankle, the subtalar joint, is even more complicated. Ankle injuries can take the form of fractures of bone, cartilage, ligaments and tendons. It is entirely possible to have an injury, even a fracture, that is subtle enough for you to still walk and run on it, all while doing further damage, considering your level of activity. Please see either an orthopedic surgeon or a podiatrist as soon as possible, and in the meantime, refrain from basketball & running, and keep your walking to a minimum until you know exactly what's going on. I am attaching a link to an article showing how fractures are commonly misdiagnosed as sprains. ...Read more
