Re: Sports Injury - Knee

Direct impact trauma to the patella is or can be a serious matter. Even moderate damage can take 12 weeks to settle. With sufficient impact damage can be done to the articular surface. You must avoid, at this stage any further direct trauma. Usually if it is serious there will be some puffyness around the knee. In the early stages an xray may still appear normal. At presentI would give up anything that irritates you knee, no point in perhaps damaging the surface cartilage. Watch out for any grinding sensations. Wait till you have no symptoms and later have an xray of you knee cap if necessary.
