maybe someone can help
Hi everyone first post here, although i have been reading what you have all been saying. Ok heres the deal................. I work in child care, was putting a sheet over one of the kids today so she wouldnt get cold(since she was lying neard the air con), i then moved my leg and there was a massive sharp pain. Went to the physio after iceing it for a bit, he taped it up for me, gave me crutchs, and i made another appointment for friday. He said i may have strained it, twisted it or most likely the knee cap has half popped out then gone back in. Im sure hes gonna do a few things to it to make sure theres not to much damages there(touch wood there isnt) and im sure he will give me exercises to strenghten the knee again. Was wondering if you guys/girls can recomen any as well? This happened at 12.20 today and there is still pain in the knee, so yeah just doing the RICE stuff, rest, ice, elevate and compression. Any help will be great.

[quote]although i have been eading what you have all been saying. [/quote] Hope it's tasted ok! But seriously . . . I work in child care too amongst other things, and hurt my back a bit last year. Just make sure that work pays for any physio bills, massages whatever. At least my work covered that, even though i didn't need it in the end. Welcome by the way. Hope you're feeling better . . . not sure how much help we'll be . . . i'm sure someone will suprise us!

Haha sorry bit of a typo there. Yeah pretty sure work will be paying for it, well my boss paid today anyway. Didnt really happen at the best of times cause im seriously thinking of leaving there. Ah well these things happen for a reason.

Start by going to see another Physio. Where is the knee sore? inside / outside / front or back. Get googling Doggies40!

Well ive woken up this morning and the whole knee is pretty sore, more so at the back of the knee. When i did it it was mainly at the side of the kneecap(the right side of my right knee) and a bit at the back. Yeah i think i will do a google search.

This is footy forum, not a surgery. Don't take this the wrong way chief, but why in God's name would you seek medical advice here?
