Patient : My 12 yr old daughter twisted her knee last week, went to doctor and had ray done. No fractures, but thinks she sprained it. Has been on crutches since. Pain and swelling have not decreased, and there is complete bruising around the entire kneecap. How long will it take to heal, and should I be more concerned about the swelling not going away. It has been a week
