Injured knee

Hey guys so I injured my knee last Saturday and I can't walk properly ever since. Basically I felt a pop in my knee during contact and I can't move my leg much afterwards, it felt numb though. Neither can I straighten nor bend my leg now and I can't put my weight on my injured knee or it would buckle. I've been limping over the weekend and I can't straighten my knee to walk properly or it will hurt. What can I do?

i would definately go to the hospital as you need to get an X ray on your knee.dont leave this and keep walking on it until you know what the damage is as you may make it much worse. i suspect that even if you go to your doctor he will send you for an x ray as we cant see inside the knee.it might also take a while to get an appointment with the doctor so i would go to the accident and emergency.. i hope that your not in to much pain. try and keep the leg elevated if you can as that should stop it swelling up to much, and also helps with pain. i do hope its nothing serious. love grace xoxo.🤗

HMM IF IT POPED YOU HERD THEN THIS WILL PROBABLY BE THE ACL THIS IS THE MAIN CENTRALISER OF THE KNEE. Does the leg top move forward over the bottom ie movment back and to when foot is planted shoving you knee cap off. (how did you do it stairs etc) are you on any steroids (where is it sore the most.

First and formost lye on bed elevate the leg any inflamation will move down ice using bag of peas in a rag so as not to burn you

any massage on knee YOU MUST MASSAGE UPWARDS NOT DOWN TOWARDS YOUR FOOT.

a poping sound will most likley be a ligament or the tendon on the knee cap rubbing
