mum - 70+ took a step up- i think twisted, now knee pain cannot walk – if do not want to go hospital - what else can we do - take pain killer, massage oil, acupuncture, apply accustop-- or is it a must to go hospital - will doc on call help by doing house call - is there any injection to help?

Thank you for your query.

For your information, a fall or joint injury among elderly should be taken seriously. Based on the mechanism of injury above, there are a few injury possibilities that can happen at the knee.These injuries can be:

  • ACL tear
  • LCL tear
  • Patella fracture
  • Meniscus injury
  • Knee sprain

As listed above, these are just a general idea of what can happen. We are unable to suggest definitive treatment or diagnosis because there was not enough information about the symptoms, physical examination and no x-ray result.
