Knee Injury Query; Knee injury while playing sports


Q: Hello Doctor,

I injured my right knee while playing indoor football (futsal) a few months ago. I assumed that my knee will get better. However, it has been about 7 months since i got injured, and my knee is still not normal.

When i got injured, my knee 'popped'. It was swollen and i felt pain. However, after a few days, till now, i can walk normally without feeling any pain. Running will cause pain. Also, my knee feeling unstable. slight knock to the knee will cause pain and make it unstable.

i also feel pain when i apply forward pressure on my leg (imagine trying to move a mattress in front of you using your leg while you are standing).

I would like your opinion on the severeness of the condition.
Will it heal over time? what can i do to make it normal again?

Please advise. Thank you.

Symptoms:  Knee Pain, Knee unstable, No pain while walking, pain when running
