The first step of the knee pain treatment process for bone bruises is the application of an ice massage provided by your doctor of choice several times a day, for no more than 5 minutes per application.
The purpose of the ice massage is to move the edema (swelling) out of the affected area, reduce pain, and also to promote the healing process.
The next step in the process is to apply microcurrent therapy to the affected area, in this case the knee.
When this happens the outer layer of the bone (most likely the femur), which is fibrous, breaks down. After the initial onset of the injury beware not to jump to the conclusion of a bone bruise, even if you are experiencing similar symptoms.
The knee joint can support a handful of injuries and it is important to reach the proper diagnosis and to come up with the appropriate treatment to avoid future risks of injury.
