    Default Are there any Physios in the Forum?

    I had an accident in work today. I've twisted my knee big time went down like a sack of spuds when I tried to turn to the right and walk off. Could really do with some advice as I'm Working away and the local hospital will only say see ya GP.

    Cheers in advance!

    Short of resting and hot & cold compress not a lot else you can do. If there is swelling you have to wait for it to go down before they treat it.

    If you can do the H&C do 10minson each, alternate for an hour with very light stretching in between. then rest.

    Thanks all.

    TBH I've done this many times playing sports. Never walking on a flat surface. The advice above is how I would normally treat it. however this one was massive in comparison, and something still feels out of place.

    You need to see someone that specialises in knees, and asap.

    Contact your GP back home, explain the situation. See if he can get you referred to "Mr Knee" where you are, needs to be someone with the title of "consultant" or above.

    Torn ligaments do not heal themselves without help, and the quality of intervention at this point will directly affect how your knee will work for the rest of your life.

    Not that it's important, or anything.

    Spoke to Missus.

    She says get yourself off to the local A and E.

    You could do some serious damage (as per DV's post) if you have the wrong treatment.

    If A&E are playing hard to get, try NHS Direct (http://www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk/ or 0845 4647) and explain the situation, i.e. away from home etc. They should point you to a local GP or GP out of hours service that will see you.

    Be careful as you might have damaged a ligament or something if you twisted it that badly and it won't support you.

    Yep, it needs checking, some injuries will heal themselves with time, usually muscular, even occasionally minor bone injuries.

    Injuries like you have suffered could fall into this category but could also be much more serious without you realisisng.

    Get it checked.
