    Have you undergone knee injury treatment?

    Were you involved in an accident which was caused by someone else? Did you suffer from a knee injury which has caused you pain and discomfort? If you received knee injury treatment following an unfair accident we would like to hear from you and offer you free information about your available options, which may include compensation for your injuries. To hear more, contact Accident Advice Helpline.

    Diagnosing a knee injury

    When your accident happened you may have felt or heard a snap or pop in your knee and experienced a lot of pain and swelling around the knee. You should have seen a doctor as soon as possible so that they could advise on the damage and what treatment options are available.

    When you injure your knee you may be required to have an x-ray or CT scan. In some cases if a doctor is unsure about the damage to the soft tissues you may have to have an MRI scan. Your doctor may take a sample from your knee, known as knee aspiration, where fluid is drawn from the knee.

    Knee injury treatment

    Surgery to correct your knee injury is sometimes necessary, especially if you have torn your anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) or you have a medial collateral ligament (MCL) injury.

    Medicines such as ibuprofen can be prescribed to treat swelling and inflammation and help relieve the pain and discomfort you may experience, though most doctors will advise not to use non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for the first few days following your accident as they can affect the initial healing process.

    There are many different types of treatments available for knee injuries and the course of treatment will depend on the location and severity of the injury. Your injury will likely take a long time to heal and the best course of self-treatment is to be patient and keep the area well rested and out of further harm.

    To find out if your knee injury entitles you to a compensation payout, contact Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 (or call 0333 500 0993 from a mobile).
