Knee Bruised Kneecap Treatment

A bruised kneecap occurs from a direct injury to a kneecap, which usually happens from falling onto a knee or by being hit by an object. Bruises can last from days to months, with the bone bruise being the most severe and painful.

The first step of the knee bone bruise treatment process is the application of an ice. The purpose of applying ice is to move the swelling out of the affected area, reduce pain.
