Knee Pain

So seems all my dd does is hurt herself blush promise she has more exciting things to do!

So she did a split leap don't ask and yelped in pain!
She says her knee made this weird popping noise and now she can't bend it or straighten it without pain.

We've put ice on it for a good 30 mins or so and have it elevated but she's still complaining when she bends it unintentionally confused

So what do you think she's done and will it get better soon?
She's 14 and a dancer if that matters

Why haven;t you taken her to A+E ?

I didn't think it was that bad! confused
She can bear weight just not on a straight leg

It could be one of a number of things including (going off the history) an avulsion fracture, ligament damage, ruptured cruciate, cartilage damage, dislocated kneecap etc

I would have taken her to A+E

Dh has stretched it out a few times ( he's had football injuries before) and says he doesn't think it's ligaments but definitely something as when she screams he feels a pop under the knee cap so off to the doctors tomorrow confused

Good luck

When she screams ?

I think your husband should stop stretching her leg out. A few football injuries does not an expert make smile

She was a lot better today! Doctor thinks it was a fluid buildup
