pulled knee muscle, need info fast
« on: February 04, 2004, 03:16:40 AM »
i was playing tennis  this sunday and pulled what i believe is the vastus medialis. i really dont know what i pulled but mostly the left part of my right knee is swollen. a massagist pointed out that at the lower left part of my knee was a muscle or whatnot that was swollen.  my friends told me to take ibuprofen and to stretch my leg often. i am hoping to go snowboarding on saturday which is 4 days from today, so what should i do?? is there a possibilty it would heal until then?

Hey !!
Not easy to say. Muscles take their time to heal.
You can also ice it and elevate your leg.
