You may have pinched or injured blood vessels if your knee, lower
leg, or foot turns pale, white, blue, or cold after a knee injury.

that the splint is too tight, causing blood flow to be reduced or restricted.
Loosen the splint if you have these symptoms. A health professional may need to
adjust your splint or treat other damage.
