So I came off a jump sideways and instinctively stuck my left leg out on the landing to keep upright. In doing so I jammed by knee straight up to my chest and it swelled up like a cantaloupe. Went to doc next day for xrays which showed no breaks or splits in the bone. Doc explained there is likely soft tissue damage and scheduled an MRI which I had done last friday. I have an appointment on wed to review the results. My question is what should I be doing in the mean-time to promote healing? Doc said ice first 48 hours for swelling then heat. I followed that advice but swelling came back and the knee dosnt feel as if its improved at all.
