Knee injury (again)
I injured my knee 6 days ago while walking down some stairs (I was heading outside to do some running when I mis-judged the step, went down one step and twisted my right knee over towards the left).
Almost instantly afterwards, a dark purple bruise appeared on the inside of my knee, and a small bruise on the outside although I didn’t come in contact with anything. My knee hurts when I’m walking up steps, it’s stiff most of the time and has now started to sting (like a graze does), although there was no cut of any kind. I can bear weight on it, but to walk the joint is so stiff that at times I find I’m limping.
I went to the doctor today, who thinks its a soft tissue injury, but all she could tell me was not rest it (I only rested on the third day as that was the only day I had off work since) and to move it to stop it stiffening.
I am on my feet all day, and was starting to train for a charity race in the early summer, so I really need a way of healing this quickly…. any suggestions?
