Knee injury (MCL/meniscus) leads to early arthritis?
A few months ago I had a fairly bad skiing accident where I had a lot of pain on the inside of my right knee when walking and swelling and tightness.  Due to insurance issues, I wasn't able to see a doctor until 2 months after the injury at which point the pain was 80% gone.  From physical testing, she said it was likely an MCL tear and possible meniscus tear (no x-rays or MRI done).  I didn't do anything special beyond regular physical activity.  Now, 6 months after the injury, my knee feels normal again.

Am I at a higher risk for early onset arthritis?  What do I need to do to lower my risk going forward?
