– Swelling of the knee
– Weakness or giving way of the knee
– Changes to your walking pattern

Here’s What You Can Do to Help Yourself-

– If you have an injury and there is swelling, use ice on the knee (with a tea towel between the skin and the ice) for 15 minutes 2-3 times / day (pack of frozen peas can be useful- do not eat later!)
