The results of my knee MRI came back on Monday, thus leading to a new quest in my exercise adventure. It turns out that I have bone contusions that result in the pain I’m feeling in both knees. Basically, when I run or do anything high impact, my femur and tibia are coming into contact, resulting in bruising of the bones. These bruises take a much longer time to heal than traditional skin bruises but basically function in the same way. Blood pools and collects at the point of impact and until the surrounding tissues are healed, you have some tenderness and pain. Unfortunately though, bone contusions are sometimes considered the step before fracture and, being such, require a longer healing time, potentially months.
