knee injury
« on: August 14, 2006, 12:02:04 PM »
I fell off a ladder from about 5 feet and landed on my knee.  It hurt for the first few days and then I bought one of those flexible braces and it is getting better.  The other day I walked wrong and it knocked me to the ground.  Wondering when should I go to the dr or will this just cure itself.

Hi ~ Better safe than sorry. Find a good orthopedic doctor & be sure you haven't done something serious to your knee. Wishing you well...Ellie
