Knee Pain from Basketball

Wednesday, December 11, 2013


Question

Three days ago when I was playing basketball with friends, one of my friend’s knees drove into my thigh when he was running towards the hoop.  I had to stop playing for a few minutes and I was in a lot of pain.  I could walk but not without a noticeable limp.  I also had trouble bending my knee.  I can walk normally again but now, the tendons/muscles on the side of my left knee are in pain (especially after sitting for extended periods of time).  Do I have a quad contusion?  Also, is it normal for the pain to migrate from the quad to the side of the knee?  How should I treat?  What types of activity should I avoid?

Are there any types of food I should be trying to eat or stay away from in the cafeterias that would help or a type of body wash that would be helpful to use?
