I am a 19-year-old male. I was playing basketball with my friend and his knee went hard into the lower outside of my lower left calf. After that, it began to hurt and now it has been about six hours and I struggle to put weight on it. It sends pain down into my foot and ankle and moving my foot up and down hurts my calf and leg. My leg also does not seem to be bruised but it hurts to touch where his knee hit me.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Start applying cold pack in the place where it hurts. Avoid weight bearing on the injured leg. Weight bearing will aggravate the injury to become more. Avoid movements in the left ankle joint. You might have injured several tissues when you got hit by your friend's knee and there are chances of even a hairline crack in the bone during your injury. You may need an X-ray done. Contact an orthopedician or physiotherapist to start getting treated as splinting of the joint is very essential. Delaying it will make things worse rather than any better.
