Swollen Knee

Jan 11th, 2014

Richard Lea asked The Guru for the following Physiotherapy Advice:

Hi

I injured my knee 3.5 weeks ago now and it is still full of liquid but also requires physio. Are you able to drain this liquid or do i need to go to my doctor to get this done before receiving physio treatment,

Thanks

The Guru Responded:

Hi Richard
.
All depends on where the swelling is, how long it took to come on and
how squishy it is right now….and ultimately what’s the cause of it.
.
We can’t aspirate and I’m not sure I’d want all GP’s doing this
either….Orthopaedic Surgeons are your best bet, but be aware there
are some (small) complications associated with aspirating a knee.
.
Have you tried proper icing and compression for a whiles?
