Hard Fall on Knee..
« on: April 15, 2016, 01:09:06 AM »
I am a figure skater and exactly two days ago I was practicing and tripped on my toe pick and fell directly on my left knee cap. It hurt but I still continued to skate on it for another hour. I could not jump because it hurt to much around the top of my knee cap when I would bend it too much. I have continually iced it so the swelling has gone down and it has bruised, but I am concerned that I damaged it in some way because I still have so much pain specifically when it is bent with pressure and when going down stairs. I want to know if I could have seriously injured it and if going to get an x-ray would be a good idea or not? Thank you for any advice given!

Yes, see a knee specialist, get an X-ray and if inconclusive, an MRI too if it doesn't settle

Hi

Yes - get an X-ray in the first instance - you may have to see an orthopeadic consultant for further advice
