Painful Knees

Jan 11th, 2014

Emilie asked The Guru for the following Physiotherapy Advice:


I fell over with my knees bent on my calfs on Saturday. I was barely able to walk straight after but now can bent my knees again. It’s painfull and I think it might be the ligaments. I can stretch my legs but not as much as before. I can’t crouching down. Would you suggest an MRI, Anti inflammatory, or seeing a physio?

Many thanks Emilie

The Guru Responded:

Hi Emilie.


Do nothing apart from icing and taking some painkillers and or anti inflams (if you’re able to) for the next 5 days.

Time is a great healer for knocks and niggles – by the time you get to 5 days you’ll either be feeling much better or it’s time to take another view…
