It’s been a week and a half since my graceful tumble during my run. The swelling in my knee has gone way down, but I can still feel a little liquid left in there. I hope it goes away on it’s own soon. It seems like each day I get a little more range of motion back.
I don’t have any pain walking, it’s just a little stiff from the swol. It is still a bit tender to the touch to the point of contact, but that’s better too.
I’ve been taking Arnica, as that always seems to help. And our blogging friend the Holistic Wayfarer sent me a link to a post she had written with some natural remedies. You can see it here. She also has Traumeel listed as an option. I have never heard used, but will give it a try.
I also went to my chiropractor, who said I was the most out of alignment that she’s ever seen me. Hopefully her adjustments will hold for a while.
Oh, and I played amateur MD when I googled “swollen knee from fall”. The good news is that according to the symptoms, it shouldn’t be anything too serious!
I also watched some Olympics and what is up the the moguls?!?! Besides sounding like something from Harry Potter, it looks crazy! I’ve seen a few people getting hurt already, and I don’t understand how everyone is not hurt! That just looks like torture on the knees! They did say that one of the competitors just had to have a bunch of fluid drained from a knee. Hopefully I won’t have to go that far.
I shan’t be trying out moguls anytime soon, and I also shan’t attempt to run until it feels back to normal. Of course, if it doesn’t continue to improve, I’ll have to go see a specialist, but so far so good!
How bout you? Do you have any go to remedies when you get injured? Any desire to ski moguls?
