My daughter injured her knee last year running hurdles. We have seen a local orthopedist, and he said she had a partially torn meniscus and it should heal on its own. Her knee was fine during summer, but with cheerleading and softball her knee hurts and swells. Should we get an MRI of the knee?
It does sound suspicious for a meniscus tear in your daughter’s knee and it also sounds like an MRI is going to be needed to help in the diagnosis. Hopefully this can be done soon so treatment can get started soon as well.
