Advice PLEASE
« on: March 11, 2008, 07:15:35 PM »
Hi everyone - hope all are doing well. I recently "stepped" the wrong way and
now have a "burning sensation in my knee. I have done the "R.I.C.E." for the
last couple of days but doesn't seem to be helping. Yes I can put weight on it
but not real well and do not have good ROM as of yet.
Any ideas on diffeant treament I can try?? ???

R.I.C.E is standard treatment for a newly injured knee. If that doesn't work then getting a diagnosis is the next step. Don't waste a lot of time messing around or you could end up doing something that will cause more damage. A some point  you need to let a professional take over.

Hi,
I wouldn't advise trying random treatments until you have the knee looked at by an OS. As Jathib said, you could do yourself more damage. It may be something minor, but it may also be a meniscus or ligament tear and those types of injuries can get worse over time if not treated promptly.

I too don't want to sound like an alarmist, however, its time to make an appointment and "offically" see whats going on with the knee.  Just my humble opinion!  Eagle

I agree with everyone here-- go see an OS. Better to be safe than sorry later.

Thanks everyone for the advice. Well at least the swelling has gone
down now but of course I have a very nice colored bruise. I made an
appointment with reg. DR. ( insurance) as will see what they have to say.
Hope eveyone is well
