Q: I am being treated for back injuries after my Marietta car accident, but now my knee is hurting. Could my knee injury be related to the accident?
A:Yes. Sometimes after the adrenaline stops and swelling goes down, other injuries may surface following your car accident. You should talk with your doctor about the symptoms you are experiencing. You may need to have an X-ray or MRI to find out the extent of knee damage caused in your Marietta car crash.
If you are feeling pain in the knee, have instability, or if your knee is becoming swollen with use, then you may have a serious knee injury such as a torn ACL or other ligament. If your doctor is not an orthopedic specialist, ask him for a referral to an orthopedic surgeon and seek medical help as soon as possible.
