Hi guys. A few weeks ago, I was playing football and I found that my knee was hurting. It wasn't paining a lot, but a dull sort of pain, which came up every so often. I still get that, and even when I do a bit of exercise, it hurts a bit. I've got one of those knee supports and that really helps, but is there anything else I can do? I've been doingsome stretches to try and strengthen my knee (keeping leg extended for 10 seconds). What else can I do? How long will this last? And I have no intention to stop playing football. I've had 3 weeks rest, and the knee can still sometimes hurt a bit.
Thanks guys in advance

I recommend an immediate knee replacement.

get yourself to a doctor!

i had the same thing on my knee, and they thought i had ripped a tendon or something like that (i thought that was a bit OTT though).

all i can say is that if there is pain, get it fixed

But it would take weeks to get an appointment. It's not like it's an emergency or anything.

:eek: ask hermione to fix it for you


hmm, id suggest a doctors appointment to make sure that there is nothing wrong. If you play football you could hurt your injury even more and not be able to practice for even longer. Get an appointment

Phone NHS direct and talk to them. Ask what they think and then see if there is a doctors out of hours near you. Ours is attached to the hospital so they can send you for test straight away if they think its neccessary. In the mean time ibuproren gel (relgex is the best) and maybe some aspirin.

Is that just for muscle, cos i don't think that this is muscle. It seems like the bone which is hurt. I reckon deep heat cream won't help much cos that's for muscles as well.

Ah yeh, deep heat is aching muscles. Does this feel like something wrong with the actual joint?

Ibuprofen gel will help with any soft tissue injuey but it is only a short term solution. Deep heat isnt as strong as relgex thats why i'd recommend that. Though you have had this pain for a while so go see the doctor. There is no point sitting around with the pain.

Yup, my mom and her sister are doctors then I also spoke to one of our basketball coaches.
It seems as though I have bad joints. So when I practice much and intensly the knee will get sore. My shoulder has also been dislocated 2-3 times. This doesn't keep me from playing basketball perfectly well though and the pain lasts for 2 weeks-a month and then completely passes...

Surely it'd be better to make an appointment now -even if it won’t be for some time, at least its set. Especially as the problem seems to be long term, it'd be well worth getting it looked at professionally.

I know on my Mum's side of the family there have been a lot of knee-related problems and operations have had to be had etc.

Take care!

I talked to my friend who's in her last year of physiotherapy, and she said that it could be that of of the muscles on either side of my knee cap is stronger pulling it to one side, and that tape and muscle strngthening exercises might help it set (pain seems to be on sides of knee cap).

Seriously just go to the docs and stop being a woman!!!!

If she is wrong then you could make your knee worse.
