I am having pain in my knees and I can not walk long distances. Can you tell me some medicines?

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Start with physiotherapy treatment and learn knee exercise. Don't sit on floor. Use knee brace. Take calcium; glucosamine and vitamin d 3 with omega 3 also. Send x ray report for further consultation.

Hello Lybrate User, Knee joint Tears in Cartilage may heal with Medicines only If you Immobilize your knee with the help of Cast (as done in case of fractures) for many weeks. As knees bear weight of whole of the body, and also are used in walking, sitting, standing, etc. They will not get time to heal up properly. Also, there is risk of increase of tears and dislocation of joint, So, in your case, it is advisable to go for Surgical fixation of cartilages. All the best.
