About a year and a half ago, I was bumped in my left knee by a car. I had x-rays done and an MRI but they showed nothing. Recently I went to physical therapy for about 7 weeks and that took care of most of my pain. Now I feel as if I need more therapy because my knee is very swollen above and below my knee cap, I get muscle spasms, and if I twist wrong, I get a sharp pain. It feels like someone is stabbing my knee with a knife. I also purchased a knee brace that seems to help my pain when I am doing physical activities and climb stairs. I don't know what to do.
