Lateral Knee tendon/Ligament Injury

I am a 52 yo female who sustained a lateral sprain of tendons/ligament of the kneew. Somehow the ER doctor saw this on a regular x-ray..I am an RN and I do not understand how this can be seen on a regular x-ray....anyway this happend 3 weeks ago and actually it hurts more now like it hurt on the initial day of the injury. Could something else be wrong. I have been taking 800 mg of Motrin as needed with heat on/off. What else can be done..should I see a specialist?

Thank you.

Hi, yes it is better for you to consult a orthopedician as most of time soft tissue injury requires better investigation like MRI rather than an x-ray. continue with pain killers and hot fomentation, even you can apply volini gel locally. Avoid climbing stairs or walking on uneven surfaces.
