Yesterday I was running the 800m during a track meet

Patient

Q: Yesterday I was running the 800m during a track meet but then I got spiked and fell hard on my right shoulder and my left knee. After taking ibeprofen and a nights rest, my shoulder is felling a lot better but I can barely bend my knee and it is still swollen. Should I be concerned or is this normal?

Doctor

A:   Hi. Thank you for writing to us.

This is a serious injury and you should have shown to an Orthopedic surgeon for clinical evaluation, MRI and further management Asap.
Till then strictly no movement of either of the joint.
