Yesterday I was stretchered off following a knee injury. I heard a sharp ‘pop’ as I changed direction at speed and went down like I had been shot! There was immediate pain laterally (which has persisted) and although I can move the joint there is very limited ROM and I cannot place any weight on the injured leg.
I would very much appreciate any advice on managing this injury as I can not get to the hospital for a couple of days. Currently I am taking ibruprofen (any advice on dose, i weigh ~190lbs) and have tripled my glucosamine and chondroitin and getting plenty of Vit C. I am trying to rest the leg as much as possible and I am elevating it whenever possible.
Thank you in advance.
