How long to heal hurt knee?
Hi, I injured my knee when a dog ran into it. After 2 days, there was no more pain in it. I then started to run again(7 KM every day) and after that the pain came back. So I waited more than a week and then tryed again. The pain came back after just a few kilometers. How long should I wait for my knee to heal?
Thank you in advance.

Hi Jenny

Seeing as I don't know what is wrong with it, I'm afriad I don't have an answer. It depends whether muscle, bone, ligaments or tendons have been damaged. Yo8u could either wait for another 2 weeks or so and try again or visit a doctor and get a diagnosis and some advice on how long it will take - it's up to you.

Good luck.
