Anytime that you experience severe knee pain after a fall accident, you should seek prompt medical attention. Unlike a broken bone, knee pain may not be immediately excruciating, yet medical attention is still important to ensure your recovery.
If you experience any of the following symptoms, your knee injury may be more significant than you thought at the time of your slip and fall accident. Therefore, it is important to seek medical attention if you:
- Have immediate pain;
- Have pain that worsens when you walk or bend your knee;
- Are unable to bear weight on your knee;
- Experience swelling;
- Have pain when you exercise or climb stairs; or
- Experience a feeling that your knee is locked and unable to straighten.
