This is Dr. David
I bet the orthopedic surgeon will recommend a better imaging scan like a knee MRI scan or CT scan to be sure what is going on
if the non displaced fracture of the tibia is small, you might just benefit from a knee brace and icing of the knee and using of the cane to take weight off of the knee to allow it to heal on its own.
an MRI scan or CT scan of the knee will help your ortho doctor make a recommendation.
let me know if you have questions.
