    Posted: 30 July 2008 at 3:39pm
Sunday I was playing some roller hockey and I took a spill and scrapped up my knees.  Well every day since then, my right knee has been hurting more and more.  Its not like a bruise where it hurts to touch it.

It hurts to bend it.  I can walk around fine, but I can't go up stairs or sit down in a chair, my leg has to stay fairly straight.  It feels like theres pressure around my knee cap when I go to bend it, and it does feel a bit swollen.

I just put some ice on it.  Anyone have any idea if I may have done something a bit serious?  If it doesn't get any better, I'll probably have it looked at on Friday.

It'll probably get better if you whine about it a little more.

I seatbelt checked a friend in the backseat. Made him hit my center console or something. He was complaining about it and how it was his clutch knee.

As for you, suck it up.

I seat belt check if someone doesn't have theirs on.  Usually gets the point across the first time.

I don't start my car if people don't put their seatbelts on.

Then I punch 'em in the balls.

then rub some dirt on it.

but seriously, my athletic trainer's advice in high school was always "ice and stretch". Broken bone? Ice and stretch. sprained ankle? ice and stretch. decapitated head? re-attach, then ice and stretch. 30 minutes on, 30 off, repeat as necessary. works like a charm.
I do it fast, slow, hard, and easy. I sometimes even do it in the woods. Yeah, I'm a runner.

Screw you guys, this is annoying to not be able to move around unless my leg is straight.  The ice seemed to work to numb it, I could still feel the pressure, but as soon as I got rid of the ice, a few minutes later it would hurt again.

Did you hear a pop?
It's pretty easy to tear a ligament (ACL, MCL).

Can you actually NOT move it in one direction?

If your still walking, it's probably not that bad. I broke my ankle in May,
and I'm still in therapy. I haven't played paintball in 6 months and had to
drop out of 2 baseball leagues. If I'm in shoes or up and around for over
two hours, my ankle swells up big time.

Suck it up. I waited like 5 hours at home and ate dinner before going to
the hospital for my ankle.

Give it a while and see how it is. Or, if you have insurance, go see a doctor and get some meds.

Back in my junior year of HS, the week before playoffs we were doing tackling drills and the player I tackled stepped on my knee with metal tipped cleats... ended up being able to see the actual bone/cartiledge.

Fast forward 2 years, and it got re-injured in boot camp. I can't walk without it hurting, and it randomly pops itself. I can go through the pain and can still run, but it's still there and the doctors said it's only going to get worse.

Knee injuries suck, if you have insurance it may be worth having it looked at. Chances are, it what they call a "dashboard injury", you probably smashed the back side of your patella and may have stressed the bone or just dented the cartilage. Either will cause swelling and loss of range of motion. Icing is good if it's a fresh injury, it will keep it from swelling. After a while, you will want a hot compress to speed up the circulation  and get the swelling down, which is most likely the cause of your loss of motion. You should try to stretch, and if at all possible, do not favor the knee. If your muscles atrophy from favoring it, it will just make matters worse. Chances are if it's a minor ligament tear they will blast it with an ultrasound to make the swelling go down faster and give you a few exercises to strengthen stabilizing muscles and improve reaction time so you don't injure it again. Chances are it will never be the same. That's how knee injuries are. The human knee, along with the sinuses are my major points of argument against intelligent design.
