Bruised knee cap treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Bruised knee cap treatment


Avatar_n_tn Hi Any severe injury to the knee can lead to fracture of the patella (knee cap) or lower ends of femur or upper end of tibia. There can also be dislocation or ligamentous injury or meniscal tear requiring urgent intervention.
Avatar_m_tn I hit my knee on the corner of a coffee table, right below the knee cap. A couple of days later I couldn't walk or bend my leg without a lot of pain. The area is now reddish in color and quite warm to the touch. Should I be worried?
Avatar_n_tn I fell on my knee (wood floor) 1 1/2 weeks ago. The knee bruised, swelled slightly. There has been a small spot on top of my knee cap that is soft and slightly raised under the skin. If I touch that spot it is extremely tender and painful. If I bump the spot the pain is severe, sharp and stabbing pain that lingers for some time. It feels like I've been cut with a sharp object.
Avatar_n_tn Hello I'm 17 years old and any help is greatly appreciated I was at this party about 7 months ago and i had too much to drink and fell on my knee Since I have been unable to apply pressure to my left knee while bending - without feeling pain - Bending my knee isn't a problem as long as i don't put my weight on it - The pain i'm feeling is just underneath the knee cap. I've been to an " knee specialist " and he gave me these 2 injections which were supposed to help .
Avatar_n_tn I never got medical treatment case I was able to walk fine. It was badly bruised...but I never had any problems with it till recently. One morning I woke up and tried to straighten my leg..and with difficulty it did..and with a lot of pain. going up stairs, sitting for a period of time, crouching, or even walking at times has become very painful for me. There is no sweeling, and the pain seems to be coming from what feels like the iside..or behind the knee cap.
Avatar_n_tn rest the leg, use ice packs, keep the leg elevated and use compression knee caps or straps. You can take anti-inflammatory medications. When pain goes away you will have to take up strengthening and stretching exercises of thigh and leg muscles. Please consult a sports injury specialist or an orthopedic specialist for this. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar_f_tn Although the pain doesn't show up when I poke or touch my knee, I can duplicate the pain when my knee is slightly bent and I press below the knee cap and rub to the painward side while still pressing. I almost thought it was a chipped bone at first, but now (because of the above) I think it is a collection of fluid and the pain is from the fluid trying to migrate to an area of muscle or tissue that doesn't want to separate. Some of you may be aware of how powerful hydraulic pressure can be.
Avatar_n_tn I have experienced the tingling numbness in my toes and when I rb my swollen knee it feels like a wave going back and forth on my knee cap. The fluid on my knee and ankle are driving me nuts and having to compensate w/ my other leg is causing pain in that knee and hip. I am wishing I never had surgery and can't deal w/ this much longer. I have a 6yr old so when I get home from work I am in so much pain that I can't do anything to entertain my daughter and enjoy my life and being a parent.
Avatar_n_tn My condition started in August of 2011. Knee pain started just below the knee cap when bent and pressure was applied. Think - bending down to pick something up that’s in front of you. Preliminary self-treatment was random stretching exercises and icing. January of 2012, I went into the ortho’s office. Got X-Rays. Nothing out of the norm showed up so I was sent to the PT office for evaluation. I was diagnosed with Patellofemoral / Patella Tendonitis.
Avatar_n_tn I have had both knees done, and glad I'm this end of it, but like others I have clunking. My right knee swells and feels like it is pulling away from my knee cap. Now if I walk too far, and 'm only talking half a kilometre, I am in agony. My muscles at the back of my thighs feel like lead weights. The tightness doesn't seem to be improving. I am doing all the excercises including bike. I am going to try physio, although my surgeon thought I was doing so well I shouldn't need it.
Avatar_n_tn The pain is mostly around the knee cap and on the inside of my left knee. My right side of the knee is still numb. Could I be over doing it?
Avatar_f_tn I'm a 19 year old female I have a work related injury and my left knee cap had subluxed and went off to the left side after having to go through 3 to almost 4 months of pt the Dr's and the therapist told me there was nothing they could do but go in and do a elms lie-trillant which in the end they decided not to and that they were just going to let me rest up and no movement well this went on for months and I had more x-rays then anything I could imagine and they told me to seek a better Doct
Avatar_n_tn The shot last's up to 6 months, but I need to ask how often I can receive the treatment. I played softball last night and I had absolutely no knee pain and I was able to run and slide, something I couldn't do for a few years now. It has made playing soooo much more enjoyable. I wish that I had known about this treatment sooner.
Avatar_n_tn My recent GP visit suggested that the teraing feeling i''m having (under knee cap, right outside of foot, periodically in heels, 1 spot at a time, for 3 - 6 motnhs each location) - could be from the muscles separating themselves from the bone. She could not provide explanation as to why this would happen or how to possibly stop it from happening so I am in the same unknown as the rest of you but will keep trying to find out what it is.
Avatar_n_tn oh and plus i have had pain in the same knee if i do certain excercises, or if i sit with my feet hanging off a chair it feels like tugging pain under my knee cap.
Avatar_f_tn In February of 2007, I fell with all my weight on my left knee in a kneeling position. Immediately, it ballooned up and was severely bruised. Within a few days, the itchy raised red rash completely filled in all areas of bruising. The doctor prescribed antibiotics at that time with TOTAL bedrest as he thought it may be a cellulitis. I couldn't seem to convince him of my "bruise allergy" theory!!
Avatar_n_tn Numbness and burning and itchy. It started out the size of a quarter just above my knee cap during my last pregnancy. Docs said it would go away after I delivered because most likely a nerve was being pressed on...Needless to say it did not go away, and has only been progressivley getting worse. It now starts just above the knee cap and covers almost the whole upper thigh in numbness or anything on the back of my leg.
Avatar_n_tn It started at the side of my schin then right above my knee cap now has moved to my left side. It's all on one side of my body . I'm really worried and don't won't to see Dr cause there are no visible bruises ..any info or help with this ..
Avatar_n_tn Well I'm 5 weeks in since the problem was detected on an MRI I went for a second opinion to a doctor in the same group. He is the foot and ankle "specialist" he looked at the report and at the MRI films and confimed what the first Dr. said except he noticed that the Talis bone was "bruised" as well. so I actually have 2 bones that are bruised.
Avatar_n_tn It happens about 2x a day, lasts a few seconds and it has moved around my body. Started in the left wrist, went to the left knee, then ankle, and the over to the right knee. Now it's been happening behind my right thigh for about 2 weeks. Very strange.
Avatar_n_tn To me it seems to be if the multiplexed sound comes from about 2 to 3 feet away it causes the thumping, almost like a knee jerk reaction. As an analogy you can hit your knee all over until you hit that certain point then your leg jerks. My ear thumping seems to be that way. I can hear all kinds of sound but certain harmonized notes from just the right distance seems to create that echo in my ear that causes it to jerk /thump. So I suggest you try this.
Avatar_n_tn I have been having a hot spot come on my upper front right has moved to the left a started closer to the knee part on the right...I can feel the heat through my started 3 days ago..and it has been coming very regularly this 1 or 2 minutes apart....I asked my daughter tonight..she asked me if it was red..and I said no...she thought of blood clot...I have recently started taking blood pressure med...4 weeks now...
Avatar_n_tn I would get a ping sensation in any one of my fingers and seconds later it will fill up with blood and look bruised. I had it once so severely that I went to the emergency room where they gave me meds to open my arteries. My index finger was so swollen that if I waited a day or two longer it would have gone gangreen. I've been to vascular surgeons, cardiologists. hand surgeons and regular md's and no one can help me.
161596_tn?1445434466 The right side of my neck hurts and I'm not sure it's related, but it feels like I've bruised my leg just above my right knee, but there's nothing there. I'm 30 years old and have a 14 month old that insists on being carried most of the day. So glad to see so many others have the same symptoms, now if someone can get some answers!
147426_tn?1317269232 Solu-medrol IV infusion therapy is the normal choice of treatment of visual loss,blurriness and optical neuritis.Usually after a few days the vision improves. Sorry to hear that you have joined the rest of us mser's.Its liveable and we have bad days. My initial DX was in 1998 after a back surgery and I couldn't walk,I dismissed the DX and didn't have another attack until September 2004.I was re Dx'd in December of 2006 .Been on Rebif since.
Avatar_n_tn I have tried pretty much everything others have mentioned here and really for the most part pain management is using a variety of treatment methods to help us cope and be functional... Some days it is okay, some days not. good luck to anyone else coping with this type of pain.
1216899_tn?1288573925 Eventually, the whole arm was in pain, and the elbow started hurting really badly, like the bone had been bruised or something. -2 months after my right arm went bad ( I could barely use it at work ) my left arm. right and left shoulder began having the same problems. -Currently both arms are in pain, practically unusable at work. -I get a feeling like a needle is poking in my arm, like when you are getting a shot, quite often now.
Avatar_f_tn I would love it if you could name some tests or treatment for this. They also thought that this could be psychological pain. Is this possible to have such severe scalp pain and it be in my head? I will be going to a pain clinic next month or the Mayo Clinic. I wanted to ask you of your opinion on the eating disorder, seb derm and more specifically the hair highlights. I appreciate anything you can do to help me!
Avatar_n_tn When I think about how I felt a month after mine happened, yes you very well could improve without surgery. They try non-surgical treatment first. I have not had much success with my physio, but everyone is different. Are you on meds? This is a very rare place for discs to herniate + no one seems to know too much about it. I was told the same by my surgeon-about complicated surgery. Good luck. Would like to hear how you are doing.
Avatar_n_tn I may get a burst of sharp pains in my temples usually one side, it can happen for a few seconds and repeat for a minute or so. I may get a pain in my knee and then minutes later in my finger, or shoulder or wherever it wants to be. The thing is I am a mental health nurse and keep thinking am I going mad. My partner is sympathetic but gets a bit tired of me mentioning pains 5 or 6 times a night. I'm tired all the time and don't know where to turn.
