How long does it take a sprained knee to heal?


Posted by c/02010

Last week while in dance class I came down from a jump and dislocated my knee (it "popped" out&&right back in). I went to the emergency room and the doc said I sprained my knee. He found no infusions or broken bones and all my joints were in place. I was given an immobilizer and was told to elevate my knee, ice it, and take Motrin. Almost a week later the swelling of my knee my decreased drastically and I am able to bend my knee a little more as the days progress. I go see the orthopedic in two days but I am anxious to see if this sprain will hender my participation in my dance concert this weekend, as well as other upcoming senior activities? Help me Please!
