RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Dr. Lauren Faig is treating knee injuries at Primary Health Group - Retreat.
The first step is prevention. Stretch before and after exercise.
Ice your knee for 20 minutes after physical activity and take ibuprofen as needed for inflammation or pain.
See your doctor if you are not able to walk or put weight on your leg or if the problem persists more than 1-2 weeks.
