Knee Injury during Basketball

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi all,

I was playing basketball earlier today and I injured my knee, 

My knee was locked and straight when another person's leg hit my knee in pushed it inwards, I heard/felt a pop and fell to the ground. I can walk on it as long as I keep it bent but I cannot really run or straighten out my knee. 

There is also some pain on my left part of the right knee and also behind it a little bit..

What would you guys suggest doing??

    Hi Daniel,

    I suggest you go see aN Orthopedic Specialist. So that you can get an Xray & an MRI of the knee so you know if you did any real damage.

    Good Luck & take care
