I was in a minor car accident a few weeks

Patient : I was in a minor car accident a few weeks ago and received only bumps and bruises. They have all healed, except for the one on my knee. The side of my left knee is still bruised and has been numb in one spot ever since it happened. I've already had problems with my left knee for as long as I can remember, no injury It's just a hereditary thing. It's been getting worse the past couple years. It locks up while walking and pops and the bones feel like they're grinding together. I've been to the doctor a few times but no one has found anything. I KNOW there is something wrong with it. And now it's bruised and NUMB because of the accident. I'm not sure what could be the problem here. Help?
