Knee injury

I am suffering from isolated ligament (pcl) injury. Doing regular exercises for quard from two years. I can feel some laxity and knee buckling if exercises are skipped for a day or two. Ligament is intact but loosely attached. I am in constant pain each and everyday. Nothing is effective. Pain and stiffness is there when i start to walk. Muscles gets tighter after some time and pain becomes less. As soon as i rest and start a walk again i feel stiffness . Upper bone pressing on lower one and joint pain kind of felling is there all the time. Will it ever heal?? Should i do a complete bed rest for a month !? How to minimze the pain!? I am not looking forward for surgery. I can do all possible exercises for it. Please suggest..thankyou

Shoulder joint pain

From last one month I am having pain in my right hand shoulder joint pain, it's coz of playing badminton, first it was only muscle pain and took physiotherapy session too but didn't helped then shown Dr, he said there is swelling in shoulder and he gave some vitamin medicines and asked to put ice on pain and it helped but then I again started playing badminton and now the pain is in shoulder joints, not able to stretch my hand properly although I still play badminton and no pain that time so what I should do now?

Shin injury

I was playing football and hurt my shit due to impact with another person's leg. On the day of the injury, there was a big lump like swelling on the shin(on the side), just below the calf. That swelling has somewhat subsided, just a small bony swelling now remains. But I've noticed that my ankle is getting a bit discolored. You can clearly see the difference in the color of the ankle. There is slight pain also when I touch it. Almost no pain while walking. I had show it to an Ortho sometime back who said it would heal. I have been going for physiotherapy for something else, where they do ultrasound for my shin as well, in order to reduce the swelling. Can someone please tell me if this is normal or should I consult a doctor again?
