It’s important to know whether there’s any swelling of the knee joint if there’s any giving way of the knee
joint, whether there’s any associated pain that’s going further down the leg,
or if the pain is actually coming from another area and it’s actually around
the knee that you actually feeling the discomfort. So if your knee pain is not
resolving and not settling and it’s alo there’s swelling of the knee, locking, catching giving way, then there’s something significant happening in the
knee joint. A few clicks and bits of discomfort are normal part of life
but pain particularly related to activity and the associate features
means there’s something more serious going on with the knee. The cause of
acute knee pain is often related to something that happens when you when
you’re walking or you twist your knee or if you’re playing a sport and I think
it’s important to assess and see what happens especially if the problem
doesn’t go away and it continues to bother you after about five or six weeks
of rest and ice and physiotherapy, from your local doctor, then I think
it becomes an important injury to assess and treat. Equally, chronic knee pain
tends to be pain that’s present either on the inside or the outside or even in
the back of the knee and it carries on for much longer and it gets to a point
where all the things that you have done to try and improve it, taking
painkillers, physiotherapy, exercises, all of it haven’t helped in which case the
pain has now got to a point where something is something is really going
on and needs to be looked at and treated. If you have an acute knee injury what
you can do is to initially I think do consult this physiotherapist or A&E
department to find out what might be the cause of an injury. If it’s not a
fracture and we’re dealing mainly with a soft tissue injury, then I think it’s
important to give some rest, some ice reduce the swelling come down. If possible
if you can see a local your GP or the physiotherapist get some advice on how
to rehabilitate yourself. But I think if the pain is not settling it’s in fact
getting worse over a bit of time then I think it’s important to not neglect it
and get back to doing things but to seek help. Just because somebody has
knee pain doesn’t mean necessarily mean they need an operation. Very often a knee pain
can be managed without surgical treatment and that
includes seeing somebody who can guide you with your exercises, what you
should do and should not do, taking painkillers as required and finally if the sport that you’re doing is detrimental to your knee getting advice
on other sports that you can do that’s less harmful to your knee.

However ,as soon as I hit the floor, I was in full control at first and I was so happy until my skateboard slipped with myself on it ofc cuz of the water in the ground that I didn’t even notice was there…my knees were the first to hit the ground..very hard, one of them was just bruised badly the other is in the weirdest position.It’s not a fracture yet whenever I bend them I feel like am literally breaking my own bones, So I for sure haven’t really tried fully bending them.Its been a couple of hours now they still hurt like hell..between all the injuries I ever had from sports this, by far, is the worse.I still thank god that it’s not a bone fracture, and I ask him to help me recover soon 🙏🏼 …so that I skate down that fun slide again ^_^
