Customer Question
Twisted my knee possible...

Twisted my knee possible MCL sprain but have some bruising on inside of knee.

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

I do have swelling. Could it be caused by wrapping it too tight with an ACE bandage

Swelling is likely due to tight ACE bandage.

You may remove it and instead buy a knee brace with a joint incorporated. This is available at the health stores and pharmacies. This would not only give you a proper bracing but prevent too much compression of the soft tissue and would not hinder the venous drainage.

Brace can be removed in night time and also very easy to wear many times in a day. They give same support or even better than the ACE bandage.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
