Guest: Hello. I have a serious knee injury an I know how you feel. Applying ice to the knee helps a lot. Sometimes even heat can help. Also wearing a brace or even just wrapping it in an ACE bandage can help. Take over the counter meds like Advil etc. if it's serious li you feel something ripping or popping seek medical attention or stay off of it. Either wheel chair, bed rest (while elevating the leg), or crutches. Hope this helps. Feel better!
