Thread: Knee Injury
03-24-2011, 05:59 PM #1
I am back to this forum after a long gap. Last Tuesday at evening I was Playing doubles on the good wooden court at our indoor stadium. During the game I tried a net kill and to kill it I lounged straight from the Doubles Service Line to the Net in two steps. And just after hitting the shuttle I felt a sharp pinning pain in my right knee but it disappeared within a second. Next morning I found my right knee was swollen and it was hurting while trying fold my leg completely and while trying to do quadricep drill.
An Orthopedic examined my Knee and told some internal bleeding took place below the patella and there was some blood clot. He adviced me to apply Ice pack there and gave me some antibiotic capsules & some painkillers for 10 days and sugeested not to bend the Knee and not to fold the leg completely. He also gave me a Knee-cap wearing which I can hardly fold my knee. He told that it will take 3 weeks to recover.
Now I would like to welcome your precious suggestions that, after this recovery do I need to wear a normal Patella Open Knee-cap during my game? And will this help from further knee-injury? Can I continue off-court stepping exercise after this 10 days of medication?
Thanks in advance...

where does it hurt again? below the knee cap? patellar tendon? or insertion point into tibia?
nevertheless, sounds like you pulled the tendon
ice it lots and take your antiinflammatory painkillers

Then most likely your patella mistracked during that lunge and you irritated the underside of it.
Ice it lots, don't bend it, take antiinflammatories. And you'll be fine in a few days. But avoid deep knee flexion for a few weeks if it hurts to do it.
